The Free Republic of Liberland and the Principality of Ongal are self-proclaimed microstates on "no-mans land" on the Western bank of the Danube River between the borders of Serbia and Croatia.
The lands have no infrastructure and lie on a floodplain. There has been no diplomatic recognition of these lands by any country from the United Nations.
Liberland was proclaimed on April 13, 2015 by Czech right-libertarian politician and activist Vít Jedlička. The land in question is administered by Croatia since the Croatian War of Independence.
Ongal was proclaimed on May 24, 2015 by Bulgarian and Hungarian citizens as an "absolute monarchy" governed by Knyaz (Prince) Milomir I, a chancellor minister, and a minister of ecology.
There are two more micronations along the Danube River banks, the Principality of Celestina and the Kingdom of Enclava.
