The Iron Gate is principally applied to the last gorge of the Djerdap gorge system on the River Danube, and forming part of the boundary between Serbia and Romania. In the broad sense the name Iron Gate encompasses the whole 145 km long gorge system. The flora and fauna, as well as the geomorphological, archaeological and cultural artefacts of the Iron Gate have been under protection from both nations since the river’s dam construction. The Iron Gate I Hydroelectric Power Station is part of the largest dam on the Danube, and one of the largest hydro-power plants in Europe.

Only a few minutes away -- by boat or by car -- are the Iron Gates, cataracts between almost vertical cliffs, where the great Danube is forced into a narrow channel between the Carpathian and Balkan Mountains. The wash of passing cruise ships or barges laden with grain or gravel occasionally slaps against the metal of pontoons along the shores. But mostly all is quiet, as tranquil and as beautiful a place to watch the world go by as any other on the Queen of Europe's rivers. The region is also the source of significant archaeological treasures.

The town of Orsova -- once a key port for the passenger steamships that plied the Danube -- was also destroyed by the newly created lake, though an imitation town was rebuilt along the new waterline. Farther upriver, through the Iron Gates National Park, villagers re-settled themselves higher on the steep slopes to get away from the rising water. The result today is the river still feels swollen, but the sheer beauty of the mountains through which it passes soon drives away such melancholy reflections. Other places of interest include the Iron Gates Natural Park, and the Medieval fort at Golubac Derdap National Park.
