The Anina Mountains located in western Romania conceal a true natural wonder in the form of Bigar Waterfall. The Mini River flows over a flat round-shaped stone plateau splitting up into innumerable beautiful streams that fall 8 meters down onto a vividly green moss carpet. Locals call it the miracle. The spot is admirable indeed and deserves its status as the most interesting waterfall found within the country. The best time to observe the natural wonder is during the spring and summer months when the waters are high and vegetation is lush.

The Izvorul Bigăr is located on Anina River in the Cheile Nerei-Beușnița National Park. Interestingly, this landmark is located precisely on the 45th parallel, halfway between the Equator and the geographic North Pole. The area surrounding the waterfall is a beautiful natural preserve, so it's worth to spend there some time hiking. It is located near the towns of Anina and Resita.
