Blederija Waterfall - The Best Hidden Secret of East Serbia
Blederija Waterfall, an exceptional natural attraction, is located near the village Reka, around 15 km from Kladovo.
Blederija waterfall is well hidden deep in the forests of National Park Djerdap, and it is not easily accessible, but it’s worth it!
The Blederija river source is at the height of 190 m and it flows towards the South-East.
The water, which from the height of 7 m and after spilling over a tufa rail, vertically falls down in the form of a water curtain into a tufa tub, a big whirpool or a small lake, is of turquois-green colour.
On the side of the big waterfall, there is another small one which, during the summer period, when the water capacity in the river drops, disappears, however it always reappears in the spring when the river is rich in water and when the flow is several hundred meters per sec.
Around 2 km above the waterfall, on the right side, there are sub-thermal water springs with the temperature around 17ºc.
It is interesting to say that this is where a shortcut of the Roman road from Porec, to Miroc and towards the Danube and Kljuc used to be, until Trajan made a road through Kazan. Apart from that, in the village Reka, we have the only water mill in this region that is still operational.
The road to the waterfall is partially an asphalted partially a dirt road, so that one can reach quite near the waterfall with a car. A road sign to the waterfall is placed near the site and by the road. And when you arrive the fairy tale magic awaits you!
