Where will new marinas be built in Serbia?

Detailed analysis of various parameters Port Management Agency (AUL) completed the Study for the development of micro-locations of marinas on the Danube and Sava, which along the Tisza and the Danube-Tisa-Danube canal provide nautical enthusiasts with the opportunity to visit Serbia with their own or rented vessels, and marinas are important infrastructure projects for nautical tourism.

Natural conditions, attractiveness, cultural and historical sights and other parameters were taken into account. It was concluded that they have the most favorable opportunities for the development of future marinas Golubac and Veliko Gradiste due to the close proximity of popular tourist attractions as well Belgrade, as the capital and frequency zone. As for other locations covered by the Study, in accordance with the needs of the market, their further development will be approached.

In the previous period, significant steps have been taken in standardizing the area of ​​marinas. The conditions for marinas are defined in the Decree on the conditions that must be met by ports, wharves and temporary transhipment points, and the Government of Serbia declared the first port areas for marinas in Kladovo and Golubac, at the initiative of the Agency.

– The study completes the legal framework, since defining the network of marinas, ie determining potential locations for further technical elaboration, creates conditions for investing in this area. Through the study, examples of modern, well-equipped and arranged marinas were proposed, which would attract investors and lovers of nautical tourism, from our country as well as from Europe – according to AUL.

They explain that the proposed marinas are an example of infrastructure facilities in which investments should be made, and thus they would be accepted and included in the offer on nautical maps of inland waterways in Europe and Serbia.

Nautical potentials of Serbia are reflected in river networks of almost 1,600 km length and two international rivers flowing through our country – the Danube and the Sava. Cities and fortresses located on the banks of these rivers, rich Roman heritage and other sights can attract cruise enthusiasts to visit Serbia from the water.

In addition, numerous events with a long tradition in the form of organized cruises along the Danube and Sava are gaining increasing interest in domestic and international contexts.

There are six international passenger ports in Serbia: Belgrade, Novi Sad, Donji Milanovac, Golubac, Kladovo and Smederevo. The Agency’s plan is to open two more new international passenger ports on the Danube at the beginning of the 2022 nautical season, in Kostolac and Zemun.

– In order to fully use the nautical potentials of Serbia, the Agency has been implementing the “Awaken the Danube” project since 2017, which aims to promote cruising through the opening of new international passenger ports and connecting locations on the banks of Europe’s most important rivers. As one of the results of the project, the Agency has produced a brochure of the same name which is intended for both domestic and foreign tourists, as well as local tourism organizations, where they can be found the most interesting historical facts as well as a review of the culture and gastronomy of the municipalities covered by project activities – they state.

The agency is also working on declaring the first areas of the port for international cruising on the Sava, which encourages the use of the capacity of this river.
