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.

Simply go there. It took us 40 minutes to climb. Children must be able to walk on semi hard path. Two parts are a little harder. I recommend to have good non-sliding shoes (No flip-flops!).

The place is perfect for people who like hiking - not full-on wild, but an adventurous climb at times. When you actually reach the fortress (which is not too far away from Lepterija - a bit more than 1km) make sure to climb up and...More

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.

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 !!!
