The longest river in Europe, the Danube, makes its way through the Carpathian mountains, forming a gorge (canyon) which bears the name The Iron Gates.

The canyon is shared with neighboring country Serbia, which names it Đerdap National Park. A large Hydroelectric power station was built here by Romania and Serbia in the 1970’s.
