Korbovo ( Serbian-Cyrillic : Корбово) is a village in the Bor District belonging Opština Kladovo in eastern Serbia .


Korbovo is one of the largest villages in the Ključ region. The village is on the remains of an early Neolithic settlement . Traces of settlement have also been found from the early Iron Age and ancient times . The remains of an ancient (presumably Roman ) city have been discovered on the banks of the Danube.

In the 17th and early 18th centuries, cholera raged in the Ključ and Timočka Krajina regions, with Korbovo being the hardest hit and many deaths in the village.

During a plague epidemic , many residents moved away and founded a new village on the opposite side of the Danube, called Ostrova Korbova , the residents returned later. The village of Ostrovu Corbului still exists today and politically belongs to Romania. Today's Korbovo was renewed at the beginning of the 18th century by new settlers from Wallachia and the neighboring villages. In 1723 the village consisted of 96 houses and was called Korbov .
