Gornje Podunavlje (Upper Danube) is a special nature reserve at the rest of the former spacious inundated areas of the Danube River. It is composed of several separate units: Monostorski Rit, Apatinski Rit, Strbac, Kozara and Karapandza. It is located on the alluvial plain and alluvial terrace of the left bank of the Danube, at altitudes of 80-88 m with interesting micro-relief, directly from the Hungarian border to the Danube, in the length of 64 km and an area of 19,648 ha. The area of the reserve is a collection of aquatic and terrestrial ecosystems. The largest area of the reserve occupies swamp flooded forests. This type of preserved indigenous biotopes rarely can be encountered in Europe. Together with the Kopacki rit in Croatia and inundated area Karapandza in Hungary seems natural integrity.
