Geoparks are unique, geographically complete areas that are characterised by sites and landscapes of international geological significance, but at the same time with exceptional natural and cultural heritage.
Djerdap Geopark covers an area of 1,330 square km, encompassing extraordinary sites and phenomena of a geological character.
The most impressive natural phenomenon in the geopark is the Djerdap gorge, which, with a length of more than 100 km, is the longest gorge in Europe.
The proclamation of the area of the Djerdap gorge and its hinterland – parts of the Kucaj and Miroc mountain massifs, as the first area in Serbia to be inscribed on the UNESCO Global Geoparks Network list, is the result of many years of work and engagement of state bodies and experts.
UNESCO’s Executive Board has approved the designation of 15 new UNESCO Global Geoparks, which brings the number of sites participating in the Global Geoparks Network to 161 in 44 countries.
