Part of the Vinča culture which was Europe’s biggest prehistoric civilization
Interesting way of presenting the Neolithic life
Pločnik is the Neolithic archaeological site located in the south of Serbia, on the way to Djavolja varoš, which was a nominee for the New Seven Wonders of Nature campaign. There one can find a copper chisel and stone axe for which has been proven that they are 7,500 years old leading us to believe that here was one of the first places in which metal weapons and tools were made in prehistoric times. Archaeologists hope that this find will prove the theory that the metal age began a lot earlier than it is believed. Recent excavations at the Pločnik site – part of the Vinča culture which was Europe’s biggest prehistoric civilization – show a metropolis with a great degree of sophistication and a taste for art and fashion.
Thanks to the exceptionally interesting way of presenting the Neolithic life at the Pločnik site by local and international researchers, professionals and skilled guides and presentations like copper melting in traditional way or weaving and other authentic activities, as well as numerous nearby cultural-historical monuments and natural beauties, this part of Serbia provides rich and unique experiences to visitors.
Recently, a pre historical village was built on the locality representing a very authentic reconstruction of the original settlement. For this reason, Plocnik as a tourist attraction represents a unique experience for tourists who visit south of Serbia.
