The Iron Gates I dam on Danube river and the largest hydro-electric powerplant in Romania, forms a great power and navigation complex built by Romania in cooperation with the former Yugoslavia between 1964 and 1971. The touristic area on the lake banks is one of the most tempting destinations for Romanian and foreign tourists. The road along the lake, with dozens of bridges, viaducts (over 60 m in height) and tunnels (named the Sun Highway), offers a great view of the concrete giant.
