Reva is primarily industrial and economic zone with numerous large hangars and storage facilities. It is also known for its nursery gardens.

Bog[edit]

Bog of Reva is located close to the left bank of the Danube in marshy and floodprone terrain. Part of it has been turned into a fish pond. It is elongated in the west-to-east direction, parallel to the flow of the Sebeš stream. With other marshy areas in Krnjača it is the major breeding ground for the mosquitoes which sometimes causes lots of annoyance for the population of Belgrade during summer.
