The EuroVelo 6 enters Serbia through the north, near the town of Backi Breg and follows the meandering Danube. Later you will enter Serbia’s second largest city, Novi Sad, passing the charming old town and fortress of Petrovaradin. Making your way towards Belgrade, you first arrive at Smederevo, the city of grapes and wine. Old Serbian crafts, tales, beliefs and customs are presented there. Archaeological sites, antique monuments and medieval fortifications are highlights of the area. The largest national park in Serbia, Djerdap National Park, is close by, along with ‘The Iron Gate’, the largest and longest gorge in Europe.
Public Transport and Bicycles in Serbia
Almost all of the trains in Serbia admit bicycles, although usually only two bikes can be officially transported per train and there is often not enough storage space.
A bus provides a regular service along the Danube between Belgrade and Kladovo (with stops in Veliko Gradište, Golubac and Donji Milanovac). It is equipped with a rack for five bicycles at the rear. The bus leaves Belgrade early in the morning, arriving in Kladovo at about 1 pm, and heads back to Belgrade at 4 pm. This is the first regular bus line in Serbia offering this kind of service, and it is also free of charge for bikes (cyclists pay just the regular ticket price).
