The Djavolja Varos natural landmark is situatod on the south slopes of Mt. Radan, on the right bank of the žuta reka (Yellow river), in the central part of southern Serbia. Djavolja Varos is a unique example of the action of erosion. It is a complex of stone pyramids located in the watershed between Djavolja Jaruga and Paklena Jaruga (Devil's Gully and Hellts Gully). On an area of 4,300 sq.m. water erosion has shaped andesite material and volcanic tufa into over 200 pyramids - towers standing from 2-15 m tall, width at base 4 to 6 m and at the summit 1-2 m. Most of these pyramids have caps or heads - andesite blocks protecting them from fast decey. Read more about Djavolja Varos at whc.unesco.org
June 2009 - Blooming of Tisa river
The Tisa Mayfly (Palingenia longicauda) is the largest mayfly species in Europe, males measuring up to 12 cm (5 inches) from head to tail. Typically, all Tisa Mayflies mature at once, and for about a week in mid June, they will be everywhere after 5.00-6.00 PM, dancing over the river in large groups, molting on trees or on the ground, or resting on every available surface, including onlookers. This natural phenomenon with varied intensity is called Tisa blooming. Once they fully mature (after their second molting into a winged state), males have only a few hours to find females and mate before both sexes die. Squadrons of mature males will skim over the river's surface, seeking females. Read more and see photos from this year's "Tisa blooming" »
