Zeliște-Veligan Amphitheatre – Asociaţia Pro-Mehedinţi

Zeliste – Veligan Amphitheatre, located above the Svinița village, on Ţiganski Valley, is an impressive amphitheater generated by lower Jurassic conglomerates (200 million years ago) of continental origin. The Conglomerates belong to Cioaca Borii formation.

This amphitheater, one of the most spectacular openings along the Danube Gorge, remind us of the famous Roman amphitheater. From the amphitheater steps, could be admired the tranquil waters of the lake, Svinița Village (totally shifted), the vestiges of houses with traditional Serbian influence architecture and the church in the old village.

Various uncommon plants with miraculous colors have found shelter in the cracks of rocks, some of them founded only in the Iron Gates region. We have to tread carefully, because those plants belong only to this place and destroying them would only jeopardize the history of these frail plants migrated here over the millennia.
