Smederevo Fortress

Reviewed By Dakles - Hampshire, England

The fortress is huge but sadly is generally in a ruinous state. This does mean however that general entrance to the grounds is free. At the top end is the Citadel which has been substantially restored and costs 120 dinars entry fee (less than £1). We found the Citadel to be really interesting although some of the restoration work for the buildings in the courtyard is being carried out in faced polystyrene boards. We didn't know what to think of this, clearly it lacks authenticity but it will be a cost-effective process and, to be honest, it all looks fine and gives the impression of how things would have been, from the outside at least. Of the original structure you can climb onto the ramparts and walk around 2 of the 3 sides with great views of the Danube.
The fortress is located on the east side of town on the road to Korvin and there is ample free parking.

Church of St. George

Reviewed By Zlatan75Mitic - Pozarevac

The church dedicated to Saint George in Smederevo is one of the greatest temples of the 19th century in Serbia. Its chief architect was a famous architect and painter Andrew Damyanov from Veles. By its architectural framework it is a combination of a trefoil, an inscribed cross with five domes and three-aisled basilica. It is located on the main square and along with the buildings of the municipal court and at home makes a unified whole.

Vinarija Jeremic

Reviewed By Jennifer E

We drove from Belgrade to Smederevo and on the way home decided to follow the Danube. We are quite happy we did that as we saw a sign for this winery and decided to stop in. We were the only car there, so we went in to see if we could do a wine tasting. Happily the guy there let us in, gave us a tour of the facilities (which are currently under construction) and then let us try all 4 of their wines. They offer a white, rose, red and a white that they recommend to have with a "kisela voda - sparkling water to make it more like a spritzer. We tried them all and bought a case of wines to take home. The red kanon was our favorite, a dry red Merlot/Cabernet.I highly recommend a visit here if you are in the area.

Church of the Assumption of the Mother of God

Reviewed By dekomo - Moscow, Russia

Церковь XV века находится в перспективе улицы Анте Протича на старом кладбище рядом с памятником-мартирологом погибшим при взрыве в 1941 году и часовней XIX века. Обычно она закрыта, и посмотреть можно только снаружи. Тихое и приятное место на холме над городом – при наличии времени в Смедереве стоит посещения. Кладбищенский сторож дружелюбен и не прочь рассказать немного о том, что здесь находится (даже если вы не говорите по-сербски).

Golden Hill Villa

On Plavinac, near Smederevo, prince Milos bought a property with a vineyard in 1829, and on it he built a wine cellar. At the request of queen Natalija, in 1897 the modest one-story summerhouse of prince Mihajlo was added onto, and reconstructed into an opulent summer court. The Obrenovic family property, with its villa, woods and vineyards, covers an area of 36ha.

Reviewed By IgorMarkovic - Smederevo, Serbia

Summer house and villa of the 19th century Serbian ruling house of the Obrenović house is situated on the outskirts of the city of Smederevo. The villa and the royal vineyard used to be a very important political and cultural centre of the 19th century Serbia. Today it is considered to be one of the most important historical sights of Smederevo and this part of Serbia. The interior of the villa serves as a museum, with an exceptional collection of authentic artefacts. The view from the villa is magnificent, because it is positioned on the highest hill in the town, which enables visitors to have a breathtaking view of Vojvodina and the Danube. If you're visiting Smederevo along your way, do consider visiting Golden Hill villa.

Podrum Dionis

Reviewed By axs666 - Canberra, Australia

OK, now you are out in the Serbian countryside, it's like you travel back in time because it's all old farmhouses, barns, and old men with weird hats pulling carts with firewood in it. You drive up a gravel road and it's a farmhouse set amongst a vineyard. Only 1 person in the family spoke English, the older son. The 2 sons took me into the winery and gave me a custom tasting of all their wines from both tank and barrel. Awesome! I then purchased 4 wines and the younger son custom bottled them for me while the older son took me on a tour of their new tasting room. The exterior was finished but they are still building out the interior. They have big plans and this new tasting room plays a big part. Then the older son took me into his family's house. They have me kick off my shoes, they give me nice slippers to wear, they sit me down at their family dining table next to the wood stove, and serve me coffee and homemade cherry coffee cake. I am not making this up. We then chat about wine history in Serbia, about their family, and all kinds of cool stuff, primarily me talking with the father thru the son. It was truly epic. They present my newly bottled wine to me, give me a coffee cake doggy bag, and wave as I drive off. One of the best winery experiences I have ever had.

Karadjordjev Dud

Reviewed By IgorMarkovic - Smederevo, Serbia

The so-called Karađorđe's Mulberry tree is a very important historical sight. At this place, the leader of the First Serbian uprising - Karađorđe Petrović - was given the key of the city of Smederevo as a symbol of Turskih surrender. It is said that this happened in 1805, exactly under this mulberry tree, which still stands in the city centre. Nowadays it is a popular place where both young and old meet and spend their free time. If you're not a history lover, this place won't attract your attention, simply because it's an ordinary city square.
