Bigăr Waterfall

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.

Getting there: 

The waterfall itself is located near a small village called Bosovici. The largest city in it's vicinity is Timisoara. To get to the waterfall, follow road 57B. You can recognize the entrance from a big 45 Parallel sign private://Paralela 45private://. There are also some hand-painted signs that lead you to the waterfall.


Visitor tax is about 1 euro for two persons.
