Serbia’s inland waterways, on which an international and interstate sailing regime applies, comprise the rivers:
The Danube river isPan-European Transport Corridor 7.
Port director’s officesprovide information about and instructions on waterway conditions, navigating the Danube-Tisa-Danube Canal system, sailing through the lock of the Đerdap (Iron Gate) hydroelectric power plant, sailing in border areas, border and customs formalities and procedures for leaving Serbian territorial waters and entering foreign territorial waters.
During winter, ice is a threat to boats and it is necessary to remove boats from open rivers and store them somewhere secure, such as winter docks. The Danube is navigable from 1stMarch to 25thDecember. Navigation is possible during winter if there is no ice, but it is not economical because of the shorter daylight hours and the low water level. A water level report is broadcast daily at 12:10 on Radio Beograd 1.
The Basic Provisions of Navigating the Danube, which was passed by the Danube Commission in 1990, apply on Serbia’s inland waterways.
