Spring tradition – tree planting on Danube fortresses
Another now traditional activity, this time liliac tree planting by the Ram fortress on Danube river. First weekend of spring is best time to plant 200 seedlings around this historical place located about 90km away from Belgrade.
As all fotresses in Serbia, this one is also full of amazing epic stories and events during different civilizations and conquerors in our region – Roman, Turkish, Austro-Hungarian. Together with Rotary club Belgrade Stari grad and Rotary club E-club, we were hosted by the local comunity and Vice president of municipality Veliko Gradiste, Mr. Sladjan Markovic. They are very pleased that, after our last years magnolia tree planting at Golubac fortress, now we came to make Ram fortress even more beautiful. This way we also became the small part of our great history.
After we planted the trees together, we went to organized fortress and museum tour and learned a lot of great stories, that local tour guide Ilija provided to us. We can`t wait to visit the Ram fortress next year and to enjoy the smell of liliac trees.
