It was built in the beginning of 14th century as a border stronghold of strategic importance. It is mentioned for the first time in historic sources dating back to 1335, and had a Hungarian garrison. It belonged to Serbs in the first decades of 15th century. After the death of despot Stefan in 1427, Golubac should have gone back to Hungary, but fell into Turkish hands. Turks stay until 1444 when it passes under the rule of despot Đurađ Branković. Turks took over the fortress again in 1458 and held it in their hands, not counting short interruptions, until the beginning of the 19th century.

Today, however, Mokra Gora (eng. Wet mountain) is better known for its tourist attractions and breathtaking nature surrounded with valleys and gorges of the White and the Black Rzav and the Kamiška River.
