The Blederija waterfall is located in eastern Serbia on the slopes of Mount Miroč, between Donji Milanovac and Brza Palanka. The nearest inhabited village is the village of Reka, through which you pass to reach the waterfall. The Blederia River with its waterfall, nearby caves and numerous geological formations is a natural asset that has been under state protection since 2019.
The river Blederaija rises at 389 meters above sea level from the limestone cracks that are numerous on Miroč. At a distance of only 5 m, several springs whose temperature ranges from 8-17 degrees form the river Blederia. The 8 m high waterfall is located 2 km from the source. Immediately after the waterfall, the river forms a shallow lake of beautiful turquoise color.
The river course forms a shorter gorge 4 km long before it flows into Ravna Reka, from where it continues to the mouth of the Danube under the name Račka Reke or simply Reka. Today, the waterfall is deeply hidden in the depths of Miroč, and the Roman road used to pass here before Emperor Trajan made (cut) a path through the Djerdap gorge. Not far from the waterfall, in the place of the town, there is a medieval fortress that bears witness to the later historical periods of this region.
According to legend, the Miroč mountain was the place where forest fairies lived, who collected medicinal herbs and used them to treat Serbian heroes. Today, the Blederia waterfall and its surroundings represent an undiscovered natural gem that provides a beautiful experience for all lovers of nature and active tourism.
