River traffic

According to the European Economic Commission (EEC) classification, the Danube in the eastern Serbia is the VII class waterway, for vessels 285m long, 33.0 to 34.2 m wide and 2.5 to 4.5 m deep, with capacity between 14500 and 27000 t.

Port Prahovo is located on the right bank of the Danube (861 km). It is the last port on the territory of Serbia and is located 4 km downstream from "Iron gate II". It is connected by railway and road traffic with the rest of Serbia.

There are ports, in this part of the Danube, that primarily serve as ports for passengers ships used for tourism – Donji Milanovac, Tekija and Kladovo, as well as a large number of small and unorganized anchorages for ships.

 Air traffic

The only airprort in the Region is Airport Bor (ICAO code: LY89). The airport has one take-off and landing path (dimensions 1086 x 30m), with a tower, a terminal building and a hangaroon. At the airport there is a terminal for 8 smaller planes with heliodrom.

There are two smaller airports important for the Region, which are mainly used by the so-called " Low Cost companies, but who have a steady increase in the number of lines and passengers - Konstantin Veliki Airport in Nis and the airport in Craiova, Romania.


Bicycle routes

Euro velo 6 is a cycling route that goes through the region of eastern Serbia, which covers a length of over 665 km - from the Hungarian border near Apatin to the Bulgarian border near Negotin. Route marks can be found everywhere. The most beautiful part of the route is the road through Iron gate, which is very atractive and not overburdened with traffic.

Euro Velo 6 enters the northern border of Serbia near the town of Backi Breg. In the south, near the Serbian-Croatian state border, the route follows the Danube. This region (Gornje Podunavlje) covers large swamps along the left bank of the Danube. Following the flow of the river, the biggest national park in Serbia passes, National Park Iron gate.

Euro Velo 13 is the second route that passes through the Region. While the roads along the Hungarian and northern Romanian borders are quite flat, the route tracks the border between southern Romania and Bulgaria through several mountain massifs. Passing through Iron gate is a special experience. From there the route follows the slopes of Stara Planina, on the Bulgarian-Serbian border.


Border Crossings

There are following borderlines in the Region :

  • With the Republic of Romania on the state road M1 "Iron gate 1" on the dam Iron gate 1;
  • With the Republic of Bulgaria on the state road М-24 "Mokranje" and
  • With the Republic of Bulgaria on the state road Е761 М-5 "Vrska Cuka".

Two more borderlines are under preparation: Iron gate 2 with Romania (on the Danube) and "Kadibogaz" with Bulgaria, near Knjazevac.
