Hiking trip to Vratna Gates - Full day
Vratna gates are natural rock bridges
ower the river Vratna, the right tributary of the Danube. They are a
unique phonomenon, a specific phase in the evolution of cave tunnels.
The entire valley of Vratna, which has resulted from the collapse of
a cave roof through which the Vratna one flowed underground, and
especially the natural stone arches (prerasts) over the river, are
exeptional examples of the action of river and karst processes in
isolated limestone landscapes. There are three prerasts: the Little
Prerast, the Great Prerast and the Dry Prerast.
The Vratna monastery is situated about
200 meters downstream from the Little Prerast. This sanctity is
presumed to have been founded in the 15th century. It is located at
the exit of the gorge, between the vertical sides of the stone
valley. It is the home of Venetian Octoechos (liturgical book) and an
evangelical book written in Romanian. In the vicinity there are wine
cellars „Rajačke pimnice“. This 60authentic stone houses are
home to the highest quality wine.
