The commune Berzasca (which includes the villages Berzasca, Liubcova, Drencova, Cozla) is situated in the south of Caras-Severin county, on the national Road DN 57, at 74 km upstream of Orsova and 58 km downstream of Bazias. It is bordered in the East by the village Sviniţa, Mehedinti County, in the West by the commune Sicheviţa, in the North by the Mountains Almajului and in the South by the Danube.

It was attested in 1692, but the traces found prove that the place was inhabited even from the ancient times.

The excavations brought into the open objects in bronze, bracelets, lamps, arrows, pots, coins, ornaments, certifying the existence of a settlement since the Roman times. The historians believe that the village was actually funded at the end of the 17th century.
