Our route starts from Timisoara, in a southerly direction, towards the Danube river, which is Europe's second-longest river, after the Volga River, and also the longest river in the European Union region.
It is a long driving road but it surely worth to be crossed. During this trip, we will enjoy one of the most spectacular parts of Romania. Our departure will be early in the morning.
We will drive through the spectacular Danube’s Gorge where we will see the Decebal’s Rock. The rock sculpture of Decebalus is a 42.9 m in height and 31.6 m in width carving in the rock of the face of Decebalus, the last king of Dacia, who fought against the Roman emperors Domitian and Trajan to preserve the independence of his country, which corresponded to modern Romania. Here we will discover also unique landscapes created by nature.
Then we will admire the beauty of Bigar Cascade Falls, the protected area situated in the administrative territory of Bozovici. Bigar is one of the most unusual waterfalls in the world and one of the most beautiful in
Romania. According to The World Geography, several facts place her as number one on the list of eight unique waterfalls around the world due to the way the water spreads and falls in tiny shreds of water.
Late in the evening, we will return in Timisoara.
Boat cruise on the Danube: we’ll visit Decebal’s Statue and 2 caves. The cruise is made by a small boat (8-10 pers) and takes about 40 minutes.
Don’t forget your walking shoes, comfortable clothes and your camera.
