One arrives to Kovin passing through a picturesque branch of the Danube. At the end of branch there is an extended aquatorz with rinsed bank protection. Just bove gath there is Hotel Grad wth a park thathas a unique displaz modelof the Danube flow from the Tisa river confluence until Kladovo. That model was made in the 60’s in oder to enable project designers for construction of damn and hydropower plant in Djerdap to explain to President Josip Broz Tito what would happen with coastal area after the bulding of the damn. They let water from sewage system run through the model to make more realistic presentation of the event. The Kovin city, after Pancevo is the most important in Banat Danube region. The city has 14000 inhabitants, among them he majority ae the Serbs, Hungarians and Romanians and the rest are the members of 15 other ethnic groups.

In today’s territory of Kovin, there was a fortification called Contra Margum ( literarly translated suprotno od Morave, while on the confluence of the river Velika Morava itself there was a fortification caled Margum), where items and coins were found. It is important topoint out that the famous coinwith the head of Julius Caesar was found and the brick out of which the fortification was made caries a seal of 7th Claudius legion. In the 9th century, the fortress was overtaken by Hungarians, and in the 12th century, Kovin becomes a centre of tribal state, which was extended in the major part of Southern Banat. Serbs laid seige of it in 1457, but the following year they lose it after a defeat of the Serbian army on the river Tamis. In the 16th century it was occupied by the Turks. Kovin was a seat of the Turkish Bey and it belonged to the Pasha of Temisvar. After xpulsion of the Turks from Banat in 1776, the fortress of Kovin was demolished.

The oldest preserved church in Kovin is the Serbian Orthodox Church from 1780, and besides it there is a Romanian Orthodox Church and Church of the Saint Theresa from Adeville.

Along the left bank, from Kovin to the confluence of the Nra river, tehre is a zone of sandy terrain called Deliblato, which is a famous hunting area rich in deers, bosra, wolves, rabbits, pheasants, wild ducks and other games, in the total surface of 33610ha.
