Djerdap National Park

The Danube in Celtic means river or water. It is not known when the first wave of the Pannonian sea began to deepen the massifs between the Balkans and the Carpathians, opening the Iron Gate and creating today's Djerdap. With this miracle of nature, the Persians gave the name Girdap or Vortrag, and Roman soldiers, according to the order of the traitor, Trajan crossed the path through the Djerdap walls, which for the then Roman Empire had great strategic and economic significance.

Djerdap gorge is the largest river breakwater in Europe, originated where the mighty Danube broke through the Carpathian Mountains in a length of 90 kilometers. There are four gorges: Golubacka, Lady Vir - whose tourist center Lepenski Vir, Kazan (the largest river depth is 90 m) and Sipska, and three basins: Ljupkovska, Donjomilanovacka and Orsavska. Here in Djerdap Dunav is the deepest 90 m, narrowest 140 m, but also the widest, almost 7 km near Golubac.

Djerdap National Park is the largest in Serbia. It is a true paradise for adventurers, nature lovers, fishermen and hunters. In our article on Djerdap, you can see how you can spend all your time in this national park.

This protected area includes as many as ten nature reserves, ten continents of diverse heritage of nature, history and beauty, which are carried by large rivers: Lepenski Vir, Veliki and Mali Štrbac with Trajan's plate, Golubac, Bosman-Sokolovac, Čoka Njalta with Pesač, Bojana, Tartar Vis, Šomrda, Gigantic stream and the Boljetine River Canyon - Reef.

Due to its diversity and rarity, the National Park Djerdap is a true scientific research center in the nature. Nature Reserve Veliki and Mali Štrbac is one of the most interesting and most attractive areas of the National Park, with a very diverse and very widespread relict vegetation, as well as a Roman inscription, in the science known as Tabula Traiana, located at the very exit from the Đerdap gorge. It dates from the 100th year of a new era, marking the completion of the section of the road through the Lower Gorge. Čoka Njalta Reserve, with Pesača, is a typical haven for relict and rare species of trees and their communities, while Šomrda is a habitat of herbaceous vegetation growing on the southeastern slopes of the eponymous peak at a place called Radisavlje's branch.
