General info: 

Bigăr is one of the most unusual waterfalls in the world. The water falls on the green moss covered cliff and spreads into tiny threads of water creating a graceful water veil. The evenly dropping water threads simply look amazing and hypnotic in a way.

The origins of the water are in an underground water spring that spills into the Minis River. The waterfall is located in the forests of the Anina Mountains exactly on the 45th parallel in the half way from Equator to North Pole.
