    We start our Danube Gorge tour from Timisoara by driving along the river banks and admiring the wild, natural and untouched landscapes. We finally make a stop to admire the tallest rock sculpture in Europe: King Decebalus Statue - former king of Dacians, our ancestors who lived in these parts 2,000 years ago.

    If weather permits, we'll go on a river cruise on the Danube and get a different, up-close perspective of the Boilers (Cazanele Dunarii). We will see other sights from Dacian - Roman times and go visit the inside of 2 caves accessible only by boat: Veterani and Ponicova. Very impressive and full of surprizes, the caves put on quite a show: the great entrance, the amazing galleries, and last but not least, a dramatic exit!

  • How about an outside thermal bath?
