The Leskovac basin

The project is co-funded by EU through the Interreg-IPA CBC Bulgaria-Serbia Programme

The Leskovac basin is a spatial valley in the south of Serbia, which includes the territory of the municipality of Leskovac. This basin covers an area of about 2250 km², and its dimensions are 50 x 40 km. The Leskovac basin is surrounded on all sides by mountains, including Radan, Pasjača, Kukavica, Čemerik, Babja Gora, Selicevica and Suva Planina. The South Morava flows through the basin, which is regulated by dikes after frequent floods that in the past threatened agricultural lands in the valley.

The Leskovac basin is an area with five rivers that flow into South Morava, namely Vlasina, Jablanica, Pusta reka, Veternica and Toplica. This area is also called the Serbian Five because of this specific geographical phenomenon.

The basin was created as a depression in the Earth’s crust, of tectonic origin, and was the bottom of the former Pannonian Sea. The Leskovac basin is closed from all sides, except for a narrow passage in the south, where it enters, and in the north, where the South Morava exits, which drains water into the Black Sea basin. The bottom of the basin is covered with Neogene sediments.

The Leskovac basin is an important agricultural area, which is suitable for the cultivation of various plant crops. Also, this area is rich in natural resources and tourist potential, and the mountains that surround it provide opportunities for various outdoor activities such as hiking and cycling.
