The commemorative plaques (tables) that marked the history of the Danube Gorge
The plaque ”SZECHENYI” – it marks the road with the same name, which is under the Danube waters today (1833- 1837), 120 km through ”CHEILE CAZAN”, today known as ”CAZANELE DUNĂRII” (Danube Valley)
TABULA “TRAJANA” on the left bank of the Danube (the Romanian shore), where Emperor Trajan crossed the Danube in year 101, but it is covered by the Danube. A similar plaque exists also on the Serbian bank, which was elevated by 30 m, therefore it is visible. .
On the left bank of the Danube at approx. 10 km downstream of Coronini (Pescari) there is the “Written Stone” named by the initiates according to the Roman model “Tabula Baross”.
The inscription is placed on a rock in the area of Alibeg (the old fireplace of the village Pescari – Coronini), above the National Road 57 and is about 10 m long and 7.5 m wide. The text is displayed on 11 lines in Hungarian and is capitalized.
Translated into Romanian the text of the inscription is as follows:
“The regularization of the Iron Gate and of the other characters regulated by article 26 in the Law of 1888 began under the control of FRANCISC I, Prime Minister being Count IULIUS SZAPARY and Minister of Commerce GABRIEL BELLUSY BAROSS, on September 15, 1890.
May God’s blessing be on this commemorative plaque and on those who contributed to its erection.”
The name of the inscription comes from the name of Trade Minister Bellusy Baross Gabor, who financed and responded to these works. The definitive solution of the problems of navigation on the Danube in the area of the Danube Gorge was achieved in our time by building the energy and navigation system at the Iron Gates between 1964 and 1971.
