Itinerary description

This track is the route of the E4 European Long Distance Trail from Osipaonica to Veliko Gradiste in Serbia based on Map 6 of "Rambling through Serbia at a slow pace" a booklet published by Planinarski Savez Srbije (PSS), the Serbian Mountain Association. While the track is close to the trail described in the booklet, I cannot guarantee it is the exact route or indeed the best, all I can say is that I successfully walked it in October 2017. More details of my trip can be found in my blog johnpone4serbia.blogspot.com.

The trail crosses the flood plain of the Velika Morava river to reach the city of Požarevac, after which it crosses low hills before following the embankments of the Mlava river system. There is a very overgrown section that I have marked by waypoints. The trail deviates to visit the roman remains at Viminacijum. After the confluence of the Mlava and Danube, the trail follows the River Danube downstream first to Ram (which has a castle ruin) and then to Veliko Gradiste. On the way the trail follows the south side of Srebrno Jezero (silver lake), a local tourist area.

For my complete trek on the E4 across Europe read my book "Six Pairs of Boots: Spain to Cyprus on the E4 Trail" by John Pucknell available from Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.com, the Bookdepository.com, lehmanns.de, bookspot.nl, and other good online bookstores.
