  • The road up is quite well, arranged recently. Already available from area parking and a bar where you can eat. The entrance to the enclosure costs 5 lei (about 1 euro), but it is possible that nobody is charging. That said, the beauty of the waterfall is undeniable, is neither the largest nor the most mighty, but waters contrast makes it precious. If you're in the area it is a highly recommended visit.

  • Bigar Waterfall, Caras Severin County, Romania. Located in the nature reserve in Anina Mountains, the amazing waterfall is indeed a unique one. The water falls from a cliff, which is covered with moss. It is said to be the most beautiful waterfall in the country. The underground spring streams from the cave above and then falls into Minis River. Why to go there? Voted the most unique waterfall in the world. The location is also worth visiting for the nature reserve. How to get there? The reserve is situated near Anina and Resita towns. Take the national road 57 B, between Oravita and Bozovici villages, to 45 Paralel.
