Soko Grad are the remains of a Middle Ages Fortress located close to Sokobanja, a little town in Western Serbia. If you go by car, there is a parking when the road finish, so you can park the car here and begin a little hikking about 20min in the forest to arrive at the top of the place and see the castle. From here, you can see wonderful views of the surroundings, especially if you came here in autumn (I stayed here at the first of november). The views are a explosion of colors: red, yellow or brown. Incredible. The fortress is really bad preserved and the government need to restore it, because it is a bit dangerous. Wonderful views, but need a restoration.

it's a one hour hike from town along the local river and through lovely woods. Great views over the valley from this roman ancient fort then rebuilt over the centuries.

This great fortress is located 2km east of Sokobanja. Fortress was founded in 6th century, and was destroyed couple of times. You need to be in good physical shape to reach this place. Path to this fortress is going through woods and mountains trails.

My family (husband, two children of 6 and 13) walked through the wood at the begining of hill on which top is Soko Grad. It is a beautiful walk, and on the half of the way to the top, there is a breathtaking open cave with a restaurant in it. You can take a rest there. All around there is a wood with a lot of creeks and wooden bridges on it. It safe for the children and they can play there. We have adventure spirit, so we climb to the top of Soko Grad. The last part of this adventure was heavy, but we made it!

From Soko Banja till the parking place with a restaurant and many possibilities for picknick it is rather easy to walk. About 3 km from the center of the village. The last km is difficult because you really have to climb and the walking path is far from egal. My advice is to wear good shoes (not especially for mountains but strong enough) and be prepared to some physical efforts. The ruins of the castle are interesting but not fenomenal. The eyesight is beautiful.

The old fortress on the top of the hill, with an important historical story. Great place with extraordinary view. Challenging way of climbing up, but worth of every step !!!

Two kilometres east from Sokobanja, on a rock that is above vertical from one side, in the canyon of the river Moravica built on foundations of a fortress from IV to VII century. It is mentioned in a biographu of a Serbian ruler Stefan Lazarevic. Turkish Sultan Musa ruined it in battles for Turkish throne against the rebel Hamuz-beg 1413. It is worth of visit.

Soko Grad (to translate literally - Hawk City) lives up to it's name - it's ruins are situated on top of a hill. You cannot go there by car, only by foot. This was our family's first "adventure hike", since the last part of the walk is a true hike - steep paths with a lot of small stones. But - it is totally worth it, since the view is magnificent. You cannot walk directly up to the ruins (at least we weren't able to find a way unless we were mountain goats :) ). Still, you cannot help but wonder what this fortress looked like in its prime.
