Nerodime River Bifurcation

Nerodime River Bifurcation

The Nerodime River Bifurcation is a single example in Europe pouring a river into two seas. The Nerodime River flows into the Jezerca Mountains; in the vicinity of Ferizaj is irreversibly divided into two branches, which have poured into two different seas. The northern branch (left branch) flows into the Sitnica River and continues on the Iber River, Morava and Danube through the Black Sea, while the southern branch (right branch) through the Lepenc and Vardar River flows into the Aegean Sea. This natural curiosity is quite appealing to many scholars (geographers, geologists, hydrologists, historians), etc., and it has great educational, scientific and tourist significance. The Nerodime river bifurcation since 1979 has been put under legal protection as a special nature reserve. The protected area is 12.78,71 ha.
