Welcome to Iron Gates National Park

The park protects a diverse range of flora and fauna. Highlights of the park include a massive stone carving of the former Dacian leader, Decebal (r AD 87–106). You’ll see scattered reminders of ancient settlements that were submerged in the 1960s, during construction of the Porţile de Fier Hydroelectric Power Plant. One of the most famous of these was the island of Ada Kaleh, a Turkish enclave destroyed when the dam was built.
