Lepenski Vir

Lepenski Vir

The archaeological site of Lepenski Vir is located in the Đerdap Gorge, on the banks of the Danube. It was the centre of one of the most important prehistoric cultures. At the Lepenski Vir site, the remains of religious architecture dating from 6500 to 5500 BC have been found.


In the middle of the settlement was a large square, a site where a variety of rituals were conducted. Based on the shape and proportions of the settlement it can be inferred that the builders of Lepenski Vir had a certain amount of mathematical knowledge. Around the fireplaces, sculptures were arrayed, made of round rocks and representing human figures. Initially just the heads were sculpted but in the later phase, the sculptures took on the appearance of full human figures and became idols. They were most often given fishlike human heads, with fish or deer motifs, with some intriguing inscriptions on them: symbols resembling the coordinate system, sketches, letters, numbers and landscapes.
