The Vratchanski Balkan Nature Park is offers lovely sceneries, rocky valleys, gorges and lots of caves.

The Iron Gate, located approximately in the middle of the Danube river course, with its length of 100 km carved through the Carpathian Mountains, is the largest river gorge in Europe.

Djerdap National Park and Portile de Fier Nature Park on the Serbian and Romanian banks of the Danube will delight any visitor...
