Demir-Kapija is a place already mentioned in Classical times under the name of Stenae (Greek for gorge). In the Middle Ages it was known as a Slav settlement, under the name of Prosek, while today's name originates from the Turkish reign, meaning "The Iron Gate". The town of Prosek was used as a fortress due to its good strategic position. In the thirteenth century Prosek had become the seat of Dobromir Hriz, and Strez was its well-known commander. The former Yugoslavic King Aleksandar Karadjordjevic had his summer home and winery built here. The winery is the oldest on the Balkans and still produces quality wines under the privately owned Agropin name. Demir Kapija Gorge is the longest gorge of Vardar river (19 km).
