An image of unique beauty with dense forests, streams gushing everywhere, hidden and wild gorges, imposing waterfalls and lakes that surprise you with its landscapes and take your breath away when you don’t expect it… it’s called the Nera River Park or the water park where water is the dominant element. It is located in the south of the Umbria region, near the city of Terni and is a park built around the waters of the Nera and its major tributaries.

The area of the waterfall consists of quite fragile and compact travertine rock deposits, with an intense circulation of water that slides on the rocks in three jumps and that has allowed over time the formation of cavities, caves and karst forms.

Rheinfall (in German), Rhyfall (in Swiss German) or simply the Rhine waterfall, is one of the largest waterfalls in Europe, along with Dettifoss (twice as high but with a flow of half). Located in the northern part of Switzerland, between the communes of Neuhausen am Rheinfall in the canton of Schaffhausen and Laufen-Uhwiesen in the canton of Zurich is practically the widest waterfall in Europe.

Hundreds of cubic meters of water per second that pour noisily on the rock on which the Swiss flag sits, form in their fall inspumed strokes, like a lacy curtain of water. If you’re lucky you can see the rainbow. Majestic, just like a bridge between our world and another world of fairytale, still unknown to us.

Bigar Waterfalls, Romania

The image that appears before your eyes, as soon as you reach the waterfall, is a true fairytale. You can see a rock about 7-8 meters high in the shape of a bell completely covered with silky green moss, over which flows a spring of groundwater, creating a wonder of nature: Bigar waterfall.

The splashes of water that drip on the edge of this bell of moss and fall into the Minis form a shining circle at river level, giving you the feeling of small diamonds floating on the luster of the water. The colors change depending on the sun’s rays and give you the feeling that you have a living water in front of you, which is wonderful. A real spectacle of nature!
