Gorges & defiles

The Iron Gates

Location: The Iron Gates are situated in the aria between Varciorova locality and Gura Vaii locality (Mehedinti County).

The name applies to the region where the Danube River cuts through the Carpathian Mountains forming a spectacular defile. The Danube Defile contains some of the best preserved archeological sites from the southeastern Europe. Many were discovered during the surveys undertaken in 1960 before the construction of the two hydropower stations start. The karstic relief and the interesting vegetation which contains southern elements and many rare species of plants are other attractions which recommend visiting these places
