Orsova is a Danube River cruise port, cargo port and town in Romania's Banat region, with population around 10,000. Orsova is located where Cerna River flows into the Danube, and close to the Iron Gate (Danube's largest dam). During the dam's construction, Orsova's original downtown was flooded, so the current-day town is a newbuild, being developed (on higher ground) in the period 1966-71. Into the new town were also merged three neighbouring villages (Coramnic, Jupalnic, Tufari).
The settlement was originally built by the Romans as river port (Dierna) guarded by a fortified military camp. In the period 1522-1791, Orsova belonged to the Ottoman Empire (1299-1919). Between 1791-1918, the town was part of the Habsburg Empire (1282-1918).
The current-day town's economy is based on heavy industries, including mining bentonite, chromium, granite), energy production (hydro powerplant, wind farming), shipbuilding, engine manufacturing, textiles, processing of construction materials (wood, asbestos, quartz, talc).
