The Special Nature Reserve "Deliblatska Peščara"
Location, origin and geomorphology
The largest European continental sandy terrain, covering the area of 350 km2, is located in the southeast part of the Pannonian Plain, in Vojvodina. The Deliblato Sands was formed during the Ice Age from sand deposits which were shaped by the wind into a unique and distinct dune relief.
Flora, vegetation and fauna
Flora is characterized by 1,000 plant species which build the sand, steppe, forest, marsh and water plant communities. The larger part of the Deliblato Sands is covered with acacia and pine forests. The most typical wildlife species in the central part are: the steppe peony, Virgilian oak, endemic insect tentyria and steppe gerbil, while the Danube area is home to pygmy cormorants and thousands of migratory birds.
