Ram Fortress

The Ram Fortress is situated on a rock on the right bank of the River Danube, in the municipality of Veliko Gradište, Serbia. The earliest record of Ram Fortress dates back to 1128 CE, as the year when where the Byzantines army defeated the Hungarians. In order to protect the right bank of the Danube Ottoman sultan Bayezid II (1480-1512) was revised and strengthened the existing fortress for fighting firearms. Ram Fortress represents one of the oldest artillery fort in Serbia.
