Expert Answers

An illustration of the letter 'A' in a speech bubbles

Izvorul Bigar is a waterfall in southwestern Romania and one of the country's protected natural spaces. It is located in the southern part of the Anina Mountains, very close to the border with Serbia. The waterfall is considered unusual and especially beautiful for the way the water spreads out over the top of a mossy rock and trickles down--similar to how water rolls off of an umbrella in the rain. This waterfall is also unusual because it is located exactly on the 45th parallel, precisely halfway between the North Pole and the Equator! Some people say it is the most beautiful waterfall in Romania or all of the world. If not the most beautiful, it is certainly one of the most interesting.
