The town was practically a village before the nearby power plant "Djerdap" was built in 1972. Since the building of the power plant the town has grown significantly. The main business is the hydro-electric power plant "Djerdap". Other businesses began primarily to support the building and operation of the power plant, and the local folk. Kladovo has one hospital, two daycare and kindergarten centers, one elementary school (grades 1 through 8), one high school and several vocational schools. Though the river Danube is very polluted by international standars, many people still fish in it. Before the power plant was built, sturgeon caviar from this area was very popular and was exported as a delicacy to the western Europe and the United States. The population of the villages around Kladovo is mostly supported by the family members who work as guest-workers in the countries of western Europe, agriculture is a side activity more than an income-generating one.
