KLADOVO

Description

Kladovo Municipality is situated at the far East of Serbia and covers a part of Vlach-Pontian lowlands, namely Dunavski ključ (the Danube Key) named after a large meander which the Danube creates after it leaves Đerdap Gorge, and the East slope of Miroč Mountain.

Kladovo Municipality belongs to Bor County. It borders Majdanpek Municipality at the West, Negotin Municipality at the South and South-East, and at the North and the East, in the length of 91 km, the Danube substitutes the country border with neighboring Romania. It spreads over an area of 629 km² embracing 23 conglomerations with the population of 27,169 out of whom 6,534 live and work abroad.

The territory of Kladovo Municipality is dominated by hills and mountains, except of the farthest East area which belongs to the Vlach-Pontian lowlands (with the height above sea level varying from 40 m at the confluence of Slatina River into the Danube to 626 m.a.s.l. on Miroč Mountain).

When “Đerdap I” hydropower plant was built on the Danube near Kladovo, Đerdap Lake, the largest man-made lake in Serbia, was created. Two lakes are situated in the town, in the vicinity of Fetislam Fortress, one is a swimming area and the other serves as a recipient of atmospheric water.

The many-branched hydrological network with the Danube being the largest river and the richest in water, consists of Velika, Podvrška, and Rečka rivers which flow into the Danube, plus a large number of wells and several thermal springs.

The territory of Municipality covers about 28,000 ha forestland. Western part of Kladovo Municipality embraces some 30% of “Đerdap” Nature Park boasting a versatility of flora and fauna and many possibilities for the development of different types of outdoor activities and tourism (mountain climbing, speleology, hunting, fishing, bird watching, picking medicinal plants and fruits of the forest, etc).

Archeological sites:

Trajan’s Plaque – Roman emperor Trajan had built a road from Belgrade, thorough Đerdap Gorge, all the way to the place where he raised a bridge on the Danube (Trajan’s Bridge). He finished his road construction works in the year 100 A.D. marked the occasion placing a plaque with inscription. That plaque is now known as the Trajan’s Plaque (Tabula Traiana).

When Đerdap hydropower plant was built (in 1969), the Roman road was flooded and, to save the Trajan’s Plaque, the decisions was made for it to be cut out and raised 21 meters. It can be seen only from the Danube.

This site is protected by the National Institute for the Protection of Cultural Monuments as an immovable cultural asset of exceptional importance.

Hajdučka vodenica (Brigand’s Watermill) – Mesolithic and Iron Age necropolis were discovered in archeological research. Also discovered were the remains of a Fortress originating from the Late Antique period that was renewed in the Byzantine period, at the time of the Emperor Justinian.  This site was populated until as late as the 15th century.

Trajan’s Bridge –  The remnants of Trajan’s Bridge and Pontes Fortress are situated near Kostol Village, 5 km downstream from Kladovo. The bridge that was built in only two years, from 103 to 105 A.D., is a work of the Syrian architect Apolodor from Damascus. It is one of the most impressive architectural works from the Antique period. Together with portals, the bridge was 1133.90 m long and the part traversing the river bed was 1071 m.

Diana Zanes – Diana Fortress was erected at the very bench of the Danube, on a prominence near Sip Village. The construction of this structure made of dirt and wood is associated with the arrival of first military formations to the Danube at the beginning of the 1st century. The larger stone fortification was created at the times of Emperor Trajan’s construction activities.

Fetislam Fortress – This fortification on the Danube was erected by the Turks in 1524. It was named Fetislam, which means “the triumph of Islam”, and divided into two – the Small Township and the Large Township. It is believed that the Small Township was the artillery base protect by the circular towers. Marble plaques paying tribute to the Sultan Mahmud II are now attached to the gates leading to the Fortress.

“Đerdap” Archeological Museum – Archeological museum in Kladovo was founded and opened in 1996 as a branch of the National Museum in Belgrade, with a task to collect, keep, develop professional and scientific documentation for, present and publish, namely to interpret the cultural heritage of the Danube Region – Đerdap. Abundant and versatile Đerdap archeological collection was developed for more than 50 years within the program of archeological excavations and research of Prehistoric, Roman and Medieval sites in the framework of the protection efforts undertaken through a multidisciplinary Đerdap project–Diana / Zanes Project.

“Đerdap I” hydropower plant – “Đerdap 1” hydropower and navigation system is a complex and multi-purpose facility that was built on the Danube, 943 km from where it flows into the Black Sea, in the period 1964 - 1970. It is still the largest hydropower endeavor on the Danube. It is 1,278 m long, absolutely symmetrical and designed in such a way that the countries (Serbia and Romania) have equal share of the main facility, maintaining and exploiting it in accordance with the agreement and conventions on construction and exploitation.

Holy Trinity Monastery in Manastirica – The Monastery is located on 236 m.a.s.l., above a settlement with the same name. It was founded at the time of King Milutin. According to the legend, Olivera, Prince Lazar’s daughter, who was married to Sultan Bajazit lived there after Mongolians defeated her husband.

St. George’s  Church, Kladovo – About 1735 already the City of Kladovo had a small church of St. George which stored the inscriptions thanks to which we can today explain some parts of the history of the Orthodox Christian population of the region, maybe even the origin of the name of the city. Today’s St. George’s Church was built at the time of Obrenović Dynasty, in 1856, and it was sanctified a year later.

“The Foam” and “The Spark” weather balloon stations on Đerdap - Kazan, the most dramatic natural landscape along the Danube was at the same time the most dangerous for navigation during the old regime, before the dam was built. Difficult navigation conditions in Kazan were then regulated by a specific river traffic management and control system. The system consisting of six signal stations located at both sides of the Danube served as a sort of traffic lights on the Danube. A raised or lowered balloon signaled ship captains to pass through or to wait until the ship from opposite direction passes by.

“Đerdap” Nature Park – Đerdap Gorge and nature area along the gorge, as a spatial unit covering 63,608 hectares features exceptional cultural-historical assets, significant natural ecosystems which are of outstanding composition and rarity, the indigenous flora and fauna and well-preserved forests of natural composition and superior outlook. In 1974 this area was placed under protection as Đerdap Nature Park, the largest nature park in Serbia. A part of the nature park (30%) is in the territory of Kladovo Municipality.

Kazan – After it leaves Donji Milanovac Valley, the Danube enters into 19- kilometer long Kazan. This is the place where the Danube is both narrowest (140 m) and deepest (90 m). Before “Đerdap” hydropower plant was built, beluga sturgeon that came from the Black Sea used to spawn in the deep whirlpools of Kazan. Kazan features cliffs and rocks Large and Small, extending 800 meters and falling vertically into the river. These rocks change color depending on the position of the sun and the time of day, which is a wonderful sight. From the rock called Ploče, above Kazan, there is a wonderful view of Đerdap. Brigand’s Watermill is located at the exit from the Small Kazan.

Petrovo village with nearby caves – An authentic Miroč neighborhood with preserved ancient ambience, one of a kind in the entire area of “Đerdap” Nature Park. It is 23 km West from Kladovo. Founded by Montenegrin immigrants in the middle of 19th century, it was named after King Petar Karađorđević who hid in the nearby caves after he secretly returned from Romania to Obrenović Serbia. The following caves and hollows are worth mentioning: Banja Cave, Miličina Cave, Small and Large Cave, Namčki Precipice, Ružina Cave, Dosu-Isak Cave, the Evil Cave (Gaura-Ra).

Blederija Waterfall - Blederija Waterfall, the most beautiful natural attraction is located near Reka Village, about 15 km from Kladovo. The River Blederija http://www.vodopadisrbije.com/maps/big_3.jpg springs up on 190 m.a.s.l. and flows South-East. After spilling over a gypsum shaft, the water plummets vertically from a height of about 7 m into a gypsum tub and creating a water curtain, a large whirlpool or a small lake, turquoise in color.  On a side of the large waterfall there is another, smaller one that disappears in summers, when the water capacity in the river is low, but that is always there in the spring, when the river is rich in water, up to several hundred meters in a second. Above the waterfall, about 2 km on the right side, there are springs of subthermal water the temperature of which is 17°C.

Bird Oasis in Mala Vrbica - Mala Vrbica is one of 35 identified Important Bird Areas or IBAs in Serbia. This international classification of important bird areas means that work is being done on their identification, monitoring, and protection. An area acquires IBA status if it meets the strict criteria based on the presence of endangered bird species and the size of their population. Even though IBA network is based on the abundance of bird species, the protection of this area contributes to the preservation of a large number of other animals and plans.

Mountaineer trails towards Miroč – Miroč has a mountain climbing tradition and many mountaineer trails, but they are only partially marked. Large and Small Štrbac paths are marked with Knafelc signs (red circles with a white spot in the middle).

Valjevo

Description

The town of Valjevo is the administrative, cultural, and business centre of the Kolubara County. Valjevo has a population of about 90 thousand, two thirds of which live in urban area. The town grew on the benches of Kolubara, in a valley wreathed with Valjevo mountains. The climate in the entire area is moderate continental.
The town lies in a valley and on one side it opens to Kolubara lowland stretching towards Belgrade. It is surrounded with a range of mountains that are famous for their beauty and diversity. About 30% of the territory is covered with forests in which beech and coniferous trees predominate, while pastures, meadows, and orchards abound. When it comes to water potential, Valjevo is noted for the fact that besides Kolubara river, river Gradac also flows across its territory. It is a river renowned for its beauty and cleanliness that are encased in a resplendent gorge. In the vicinity of Valjevo there are several small lakes and “Rovni” accumulation lake which is only 12km far from the town is soon to be activated.
Valjevo and its surroundings enjoy significant tourist potential, primarily when it comes to spa tourism, as well as recreational, religious, or adventure tourism. We would like to particularly draw attention to Maljen Mountain with its famous and very popular Divčibare uplands. This is the first mountain you will see if you are coming from the direction of Belgrade or Vojvodina. Thanks to its favourable climate, it offers a wonderful milieu for resting or taking up some recreational sport in summer time, and enjoying winter sports and revelling in the snow during winter. The entire range of Valjevo mountains attracts the lovers of trail riding, cyclists, canyoning and speleology fans, whilst Gradac river is among the rivers most loved by fly fishing fans in this part of Europe.
Brankovina village is a tourist destination of great ethnic and historic significance, and Lelić, Ćelije, and Pustinja monasteries lure many Christians and pilgrims.
Tešnjar, old Turkish marketplace on the right bench of Kolubara is a cultural and historical monument and it is itself very popular as a ‘ready-made’ setting for films and TV series.
Valjevo was fortunate to have started its development in mid XIX century based on the urban planning documents and architectural plans which ensured that street intersections are perpendicular. The buildings which were modern at that time are still there. Besides, Valjevo is one of few cities that can boast of two čaršija (marketplaces), a modern one and one dating back in the times of Turkish rule.

The projects filmed in the location within this municipality in past five years:
♦   Zona Zamfirova (Zamfir’s Zona),

Zrenjanin

Description

The City of Zrenjanin lies on the meridian 20°23’ East and the parallel 45°23’ North, in the very center of the Serbian part of Banat region, on the River Begej and Tisa. Zrenjanin is 80 m.a.s.l., with the territory of the City ranging between 77 and 97 m.a.s.l.

Zrenjanin is on the Western edge of the Banat loess plateau, at the place where the channeled River Begej flows into the former bed of River Tisa. The area of the Municipality is unambiguously lowland.

Zrenjanin is a city with long tradition in several areas of cultural creation – theatre (it has the oldest theatre building in Serbia that was erected in 1839), music, and painting, non-professional art.

Zrenjanin is one of the cities which enjoyed favorable conditions for constructional development, and the circuitous course of the River Begej, with a large number of meanders, laid the foundations for the formation of city streets. This basic layout was preserved to these days.

Historical framework for the creation of Vojvodina cities, Zrenjanin including, belongs entirely to the 18th century. Once the center of the town was formed, there started construction works on other areas along the River Begej and, after the organized settlement of the Germans that took place until 1785, the first well regulated part of the city was  erected – “The New German City”. Bečkerek had the most complex urban planning layout that was untypical and much dispersed, but it also boasted more balanced development than most cities in its surroundings.

The completion of the city structure and the development of regulation matrix which has been preserved to this date, followed after the great fire in 1807. The renewal of the city brought the fastest development to it – in the fields of economy, culture, and construction. The population almost doubled in the 19th century and first monumental buildings appeared in the city center. To this date they have remained the symbols of the city and the representative samples of architectural heritage – the City Hall (erected in 1820, reconstructed and annexed in 1888), the Theater (1839), the Roman Catholic Cathedral (1868), the Trade Academy (1891), the Christian Reformed Church (1891), the Finance Palace which is today the National Museum (1894) and many others.

Our recommendation for visitors to Zrenjanin is to start their visit of the city and its surroundings by getting to know its cultural-historical monuments, the architectural heritage in the old city center, or any of cultural institutions that foster the rich tradition of human creation in this area. The old city center is composed of a set of attractive buildings, most of them erected in the 19th and early 20th centuries, in Kralja Aleksandra I Karađorđevića, Svetosavska, Gimnazijska, Pupinova, Narodnog fronta, Kralja Petra Prvog, Jevrejska, Svetozara Markovića streets, around Trg slobode, Trg dr Zorana Đinđića, and the “Small Bridge”.  There is also a unique holiday resort along city lakes that were created when the abandoned course of the River Begej was divided up.

The most important tourist and cultural institutions:

- Zrenjanin Modern Gallery

- “Toša Jovanović” National Theatre

- Zrenjanin National Museum

- Cultural Center

- Historical Archive

- “Žarko Zrenjanin” City National Library
