From isolated island to Sea of Belgrade
Once Ada Ciganlija was an isolated river island ("ada" in Serbian means island), however after connecting it with the right bank of the Sava River by two causeways in 1967, Ada became peninsula. Causeways created a lake 4.2 km long and about 200 m wide, with the depth between 4 and 6 meters. During 90s Ada Ciganlija was summer destination preferred by people who could not afford to go to the seaside. After that period Ada was given nickname the Sea of Belgrade.
