List of islands of Serbia

This is a list of islands of Serbia. The best known Island is the Ada Ciganlija, which is a popular recreational area and tourist spot. Apart from Ada, Belgrade has total of 16 islands[1] on the rivers, many still unused. Among them, the Great War Island at the confluence of Sava, stands out as an oasis of unshattered wildlife (especially birds).[2] These areas, along with nearby Small War Island, are protected by the city's government as a nature preserve.[3]
Name Location Notes Image
Ada Ciganlija
(Sava river) Belgrade Ada is situated on the bungee jumping, water skiing and paintballing.[4] There are numerous tracks on the island, where it is possible to ride a bike, go for a walk or go jogging.[4]
Ada Kaleh
Iron Gate (Danube) The construction of the joint Yugoslavian-Romanian mega project that would finally tame the Danube river commenced in 1964. In 1972 the Iron Gate I Dam was opened, followed by Iron Gate II Dam, in 1984, along with two hydroelectric power stations and two sluices. The old Orşova, the Danube island Ada Kaleh and at least five other villages, totaling a population of 17,000, had to make way. People were relocated and the settlements have been lost forever to the Danube.(Submerged)
Ada Međica
(Sava river) Belgrade Ada Međica is an ovally shaped river island in the Sava river, a kilometer long and 200 m wide. It is located just north of the central part of the much larger Ada Ciganlija. It is forested and has no resident population, but has many weekend-houses owned by the residents of Belgrade. During summer over 2,000 Belgraders spend weekends on Ada Međica, which is accessible only by small boats. Leisure activities include swimming, walking and barbecues, as the area is nearly intact and without touristic facilities. One of the local communities which constitute the neighborhood of Blokovi of Novi Beograd was named Ada Međica in the 1990s, with a population of 4,636 in 2002. The name of the island, Ada Međica, is Serbian for border river island as for the centuries the Sava river was a border of many states (Roman Empire, Byzantine Empire, Kingdom of Hungary, Serbia, Ottoman Empire, Habsburg Monarchy, etc.). The island is on the borderline today too as it belongs to the municipality of Novi Beograd, and 100 meters away Ada Ciganlija belongs to the municipality of Čukarica.
