Serbian Carpathians - Definitions


Under the strict definition (as defined by the Serbian Academy of Sciences and Arts and adopted by the Carpathian Convention), Serbian part of the Carpathian Mountains covers only 732 km², or 0.35% of the total Carpathian area. That part encompasses the southern bank of the Iron Gate and the area of Đerdap national park. In most other definitions, even that part is not included in the Carpathians, and they do not cross the Danube. The extreme points of so defined Carpathian area in Serbia are Tekija 44°43′N 22°28′E / 44.717°N 22.467°E / 44.717; 22.467 on north, 44°22′N 22°06′E / 44.367°N 22.100°E / 44.367; 22.100 on south, Golubac 44°40′N 21°36′E / 44.667°N 21.600°E / 44.667; 21.600 on west and 44°39′N 22°33′E / 44.650°N 22.550°E / 44.650; 22.550 on east (Iron Gate dam). It covers northern rims of northern Kučaj, Šomrda, Liskovac, Veliki Greben and Miroč mountains, in municipalities of Golubac, Majdanpek and Kladovo

However, in Serbian geography, the epithet "Carpathian" is traditionally also given to the whole northern part of the Carpatho-Balkan arc, which connects the Carpathians proper with the Balkan Mountains. It refers to the following mountains:

  • Šomrda
  • Liškovac
  • Veliki Greben
  • Miroč
  • Homolje mountains (Homoljske planine)
  • Veliki Krš
  • Mali Krš
  • Stol
  • Deli Jovan
  • Beljanica
  • Kučaj mountains (Kučajske planine)
  • Rtanj
  • Tupižnica
  • Devica
  • Ozren

There are incentives to incorporate the whole wider Serbian Carpathian region into the framework of the Carpathian Convention. Serbia ratified the Convention in November 2007.

Famous quotes containing the word definitions:

    Lord Byron is an exceedingly interesting person, and as such is it not to be regretted that he is a slave to the vilest and most vulgar prejudices, and as mad as the winds?
    There have been many definitions of beauty in art. What is it? Beauty is what the untrained eyes consider abominable.
    Edmond De Goncourt (1822–1896)

    What I do not like about our definitions of genius is that there is in them nothing of the day of judgment, nothing of resounding through eternity and nothing of the footsteps of the Almighty.
    —G.C. (Georg Christoph)
