It was very impressive to visit the archaeological excavations of Vucedol Culture where both, the place and architecture of Museum are in function of introducing unique ancient culture and knowledge related to the role of human race in Universe, on Planet Earth and purpose of their lifes.
Exciting was to sail on Danube River in ecological friendly electrical boat „Bajadera“, designed and built from scratch, but also, it was exciting to find out that this is a family investment supported by state and one food company which decided to take this opportunity for their promotion. The owner and very soon the captain of this boat is female, the only female boat owner and captain on Danube (as far as she knows). Danube is close related to wine production and during the sail, the wine degustation is offered to passengers.
Erdut Winery owns the biggest vineyard in one table in the country (around 515 ha) and this winery hosted all guests showing their history and achievements and quality of their products on the following degustation. We were able to see the biggest barrel in the world which is in use today, filled with 70.000 litters of wine.
