The Zapadna Morava river meanders between the cities of Požega and Čačak. After a dam and a hydroelectricity power plant were established in the region, part of the river became the Međuvršje lake.
However, centuries before the creation of the dam during the 13th-century, a Gradina military fortification was constructed on a hill between the meandering curves. Today, only one tower still stands from the once-mighty fort known as Kula Gradina. The remains of a bastion are also visible.
Although the ruins are not exactly breathtaking, the view over the Ovčar-Kablar gorge is magnificent. Next to the tower is the Uspenje Monastery and not far from that is the Jovanje Monastery.
Know Before You Go
The tower is located next to the Uspenje monastery. If you are on the road between Čačak and Požega, cross the bridge over the lake in Ovčar Banja and then drive on the opposite side.
