Oltenia is one of the oldest and the most beautiful regions of Romania; on its territory tourists can find a multitude of fascinating sightseeing options such as Roman camps, Dacian fortresses and medieval mansions.

Oltenia is also famous for its spectacular natural scenery, ancient places of worship, monasteries and convents, which have become historical monuments. Three of the many resorts of national interest provided by the Danube river are found in Oltenia. These spectacular sites are the Danube Gorge (Clisura Cunarii), Cazanele Miici (Small Cauldrons) and Cazanele Mari (Big Cauldrons).

This Oltenia region boasts of many water attractions untapped by tourists and a large number of caves, gorges and ravines that are yet to be appreciably exploited by tourism. Major tourism investments were made in spa and winter sports tourism here; Oltenia is currently one of the largest ski areas in the Romanian mountains.

  • Day 2 - Ocnele Mari Saline,Horezu and Polovragi Cave

    Horezu - The capital of the Romanian folk pottery

    Saline Ocnele Mari, Horezu and workshops of craftsmen working with clay, Polovragi Cave.

    The town's emblematic activity is pottery. The Olari ceramic centre is the most important pottery centre in Romania. Pottery is an inherited skill in the families of the potters who have preserved and handed down from parents to children the technoques of clay handling and its metamorphosis.

    The city of Horezu is best known for the traditional pottery for its 17th century monastery.

    The town is well known for its people who make pottery and their crafts at an annual fair (see Horezu ceramics). There are special traditions which have been well preserved.
    This is an area of historical and monastic character, oriented towards Romanian handicraft activities such as pottery, weaving, religious painting and wood carving.

    Saline Ocnele Mari

    The Ocnele Mari saline is located in Ocnele Mari, in Valcea County, in the central-southern part of Romania, in the Subcarpathian region of Valcea. The Ocnele Mari Salt was recently set up for sightseeing, for tourists who want to explore this special place. It is a really special place for all those who want to explore but also looking for ways to care for their health. The viewing area is located 225 meters above sea level and stretches over a 5 hectare. The salt mine at Ocnele dates from the Dacian era. According to the archaeological finds, the Buridava tribal center was here. The exploitation of the mine continued during the Roman occupation, the proof being the Roman camp at Stolniceni, which was built precisely to control this commercial area. After the Roman conquest, the salt was extracted and sold for the benefit of the inhabitants of the area. Ocnele Mari was first mentioned in an official document in 1402. In the Middle Ages, the exploitation of salt had a special importance, and its trade became a monopoly. A special momentum was given to the mining exploitation at Ocnele Mari during St. Voivod Martir Constantin Brâncoveanu, when salt became an important source of income. The height of the rooms is 8m. Entrance to the salt mine is by bus (public transport). Salt air is very healthy and recommended for those with respiratory problems whereby 30 minutes to 60 minutes in this environment benefit those with mild asthma, emphysema, allergies, chronic rhinitis, bisinosis, silicosis, chronic tonsillitis, etc. The inner temperature is 13-15 degrees Celsius. The Ocnele Mari Saline Park has a church, a museum, a restaurant, souvenir shops, bars, a football field, basketball, tennis, billiards table, and children's playgrounds.
     
    Polovragi Cave is near the village of Baia de Fier, Gorj County. It is found in Capatana Mountains, on the bank of Oltet river, at an altitude of 670m and at 20 m above the level of the river, in Polovragi commune between the towns of Horezu and Baia de Fier. The entrance to the cave is on the left bank of the river. Prior to arriving here, tourists can enjoy other attractions, such as the Polovragi Monastery and the Polovragi Forest. Archaeological excavations made at Polovragi revealed evidence of a Dacian fortress and a cemetery. There are also springs of chlorosodic, sulphurous mineral water, identical to those of Pociovalistea, near Novaci, which flow abundantly. It is named after a rare plant growing in the area, used by a famous quack living in the mountain cave to heal people from diseases of the stomach and bones. Most legends surrounding the site are related to the Geto-Dacian spiritual leader Zamolxe. He would have lived in Polovragi Cave and had the power to change his appearance. In the cave, tourists will discover a specially shaped stone, which has been named Zamolxe's Throne, which is said to be loaded with some unusual energy.

     The Polovragi Monastery is situated at the entrance to the Oltet Gorge, at the foot of Piatra Polovragilor Mountain. It is a monastery of nuns built in the 17th century. A a feudal art monument built in Byzantine style is found there. The original building dates back to 1504/1505, and was rebuilt in 1643 on the foundations of the old settlement, with the help of the ruler Matei Basarab. Constantin Brancoveanu is the one who completed the construction immediately after redeeming it from the Patriarch of Jerusalem. It is dedicated to the Assumption of the Virgin and, as it is placed, gives you the impression that it is the gate of Oltet's keys.

  • Day 3 - Danube Clarion,boat trip, Drobeta Turnu Severin, Herculane Resort

    Danube Clarion, boat ride and Sf Ana Monastery from Orsova, possibly included here and Baile Herculane. Accommodation day 3 and 4 on the Danube hill.

    The Severin Water Tower, visiting the tower and the Bigar Waterfall. Also on Day 3, if time allows, a ride with the moina Oravita - Anina.

    The Danube Clarion (Serbian Banatska Klisura) is a geographic region located along the northern bank of the Danube in the south of Banat. The region’s boundaries consist of the Nera river to the west and by the Danube boilers to the east. The Clarion of the Danube is a territory full of natural history, which extends from the entrance of the Danube on the territory of Romania to Bazias, to the Gura Vaii until the Danube exit from the so-called Danube Boilers. Anywhere on the Danube's Clisura, you can stop and admire the paradise. On the one hand, rocky hills, with parks and natural reserves, with secular forests protected with plant varieties and unique birds in the world. And on the other, the lazy thread of the Danube. Nature lovers will be delighted with rare trees and shrubs and endives colonies. The largest settlements in the Danube Clisura are Orsova and Moldova Noua. Also from the Danube cluster are Socol, Pojejena, Coronini, Garnic, Sichevita, Berzasca from Caras-Severin County, as well as Svinita, Dubova, Eselnita, Ilovita and Breznita-Ocol from Mehedinti County. The region is inhabited by Romanians and Serbs, some of them having a Serbian majority. They are mostly in Socol, Pojejena and Svinita. There is also a community of Czechs, especially around the village of Garnic, more precisely in the towns of Bigar and Eibenthal. A large number of Germans can also be found in Orvova. Historically, the region was part of the Banat military border and was divided into the Wallachian (Roman) and Illyrian (Serbian) sectors.

     

    Bigar Waterfall and Eftimie Murgu water mills.

    The Bigar waterfall, located on the well of the same name, is located near the town of Bozovici in Caras-Severin County. It is located in the Nerei-Beusnita National Park, a park located in the southwestern part of Romania. The waterfall is one of the world's most spectacular water falls, according to The World Geography. It was ranked at the top of the cascades of the ordinary waterfalls (from all over the world) in 2013. Interestingly, the Bigar Waterfall is halfway between the North Pole and the Equator. Fixed on the parallel of 45 degrees in the northern hemisphere. The natural reserve was established in 1982, and after 8 years it was declared a protected area. Its surface is over 176 hectares. The Bigar Waterfall is in the northern part of the park. The waters of the Bigar spring or the burst, as some say, flow into the Minis River. They pass over a calcareous hillock, giving the appearance of the bell. Unfortunately, I say, much of the spring waters have been captured upstream of the waterfall, by those who administer Minis pasture. That's why the water flow is very low. If many days pass without rain, you may not be able to admire the waterfall at its true value and beauty. Out of curiosity, I climbed upstream to the mouth of the spring. About 300 meters. We could admire the water course and other cataract up to one meter tall. I recommend you do the same.

    Water mills have an old history and a beautiful presence, especially after entering Unesco World Heritage, being located in Eftimie Murgu (formerly Rudaria), is a unique tourist destination in Romania as well as in Southeastern Europe. Situated on the Almaj Valley, the mulinological complex comprises today 22 mills with a hoop, comprising a horizontal wheel and radical cups, which the randasii use and maintain. Rudaria is the river that upon which, starting in 1770, such mills were built. In 1772 there were eight, and from 1874 until 1910, 51 mills were built, but the floods destroyed 28 of them. During this time, the peasants of the village milled corn in these wood mills. Just as many things have changed in the wilderness after 1989 across the country, so did these attractions in the Rudaria valley. The complex was left behind, and what had been so precious since the end of the 19th century was in danger of becoming just a page in a history book. However, in the early 2000s, specialists from the Astra Museum in Sibiu accessed European funds and renovated the mounds, and since then more and more tourists visit the area.

  • Day 4 - Castelul Huniazilor , Deve Castle, Fairy tale Castle

    Hunyadi Castle and Torture Museum, right at the gate of the castle, the fortress of Deva, and optionally the Zanelor Castle (Porumbacu clay pit).

    Accommodation at Cartisoara (near Fagaras) or a walk to Transfagarasan.

    The Corvin Castle, was the castle of the brightest king of medieval Hungary, Matia Corvin.

    The monument there has a special charm due to its diverse construction styles, the presence of military and civilian innovations, and the tumultuous courtyard life that animated it for over 400 years.

    The Castle of Corvinus  is truly impressive and dominates the city of Hunedoara. For those who appreciate the Middle Ages, the castle represents a unique monument in Romania and is among the most attractive in the Europe.

    Clay Castle of the Valley of the Fairies, nestled in the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains in the heart of Transylvania, a tiny Romanian town is now home to a fairytale adorable 10-room hotel built from clay and sand. The hotel’s Romanian name is Castelul de Lut Valea Zanelor, which translates to “Clay Castle of the Valley of the Fairies” in English. What a fitting moniker for these ancient architectural accommodations. Construction was only recently completed, and the hotel will be open to guests very soon.

    The hotel’s owners, Razvan and Gabriela Vasile, sold their home in Romania’s capital city of Bucharest in order to bring this clay fairytale castle into reality. The Valley of the Fairies, situated near the tiny village of Porumbacu De Sus, is 24 miles from the city of Sibiu.

    Its remote location and jaw-dropping views add to the hotel’s charm and mystique, effortlessly giving visitors the sense that they have travelled not only distance, but also in time.

    Besides its charming architectural design and scenic surrounding landscape, perhaps the most interesting feature of the eco-friendly hotel is how it was built. Eschewing all modern building techniques, the hotel is composed primarily of clay and sand. The 10-room chalet was designed by eco architect Ileana Mavrodin, along with the Vasiles, and built by local craftsmen. “The exterior plastering is of lime and sand and the towers are of river stone, built with lime and sand,” said Razvan Vasile. “Everything is made with natural materials, and the windows and doors are different, each room having its own separate entrance.”

    Soon, the Vasiles say the hotel will be ready to host guests for overnight visits, but little is known about when that will happen or what the accommodations will cost. We do know the hotel will have a restaurant by the end of the year, serving a menu of local organic food. The hotel’s Facebook page acts as a hub for updates (in Romanian), while the website is still under construction.

     

  • Day 5 - The Sfinx and Babele, Bran Castle.

    Babele and Sphinx, Bran Castle.

    The Sphinx and Babele, the monuments of Bucegi Mountains, remain the attraction of Romanians passionate about short mountain rides. Situated at a 2400 meters altitude.

    Bucegi Plateau is renowned for two of the most interesting natural monuments, Babele and the Sphinx, which attract hundreds of tourists daily. The landscape is breath-taking and when you step on the Bucegi Plateau, the first thing you do is take a picture of the Sphinx. Everyone who comes here promises to come back. Bucegi Plateau is easily reached by bus from Busteni (DN1), the starting point being near Hotel Silva. The cable car route is shorter by 1235 meters and a length of 4.3 km, which it takes in about ten minutes. There are theories that these formations have been carved by the Dacians, are extraterrestrial creations or the perfect "idea" of nature. The rock was named after its resemblance to the Egyptian Sphinx, and its formation is attributed to wind erosion. There are many more terrible fantasies that say the Dacians would have carved the megalith or it would be of extraterrestrial origin. Formed from a large stone block that has taken shape today in a very long time, the Bucegi Sphinx, located on Bucegi Plateau, Dâmbovita County, measures 8 meters in height and 12 meters in width. A lot of legends have been born around the Sphinx of Bucegi and Babele. Some say they are natural, others are human creation. There is a good number of testimonies that these stones set on top of the mountain emanate positive energies that defended the country from invaders. The most modern theories claims that these stones are of alien origin. There are also legends that the Atlas of Greek mythology is the top of the Bucegi or Prometheus man crowned by a cliff on the same peak, and Babele, some altars of an ancient civilization, or the Sphinx of Bucegi was modeled by the Dacians.

    Bran Castle is located between Piatra Craiului and Bucegi, on a cliff in the Turc Valley, in the central area of ??Bran, at the point where Bran-Rucar corridor meets the Barsa countryside.

    The commercial road from Bran to Campulung is certified in the oldest commercial privilege granted to the merchants of Brasov issued by Vlaicu Voda on January 20, 1368. This main artery of transcarpathian communications provided Transilvania's link with Europe's commercial roads,

    The first documentary attestation of the fortress in Bran dates back to November 19, 1377, when the Brasovians obtained the privilege of constructing with their own means the fortress for defending the border between Transylvania and Valahia.

    The rock on which the castle rises dominates the surrounding area, at a strategic point, where the valley, before being cut into the plain, narrows, offering the possibility of an efficient control.

    Due to its particular configuration, the architectural historical values and the remarkable conservation status, Bran Castle is one of the most important such fortified ensembles in the country and one of the oldest preserved medieval mountain castles.

    The particular position, raised above the valley, in a narrowing of it and flanked by a rocky coast, firmly deters it from the surrounding settlement and turns it into a defining element of the local landscape.

    The castle functions as a defensive fortress until the border was moved from Bran to Fundata in 1836, after which it was almost ruined until 1920, when the Brasov Local Council decided to offer it to the Queen Maria of Romania, in recognition of the contribution made by her Majesty to the achievement of the Great Union in 1918.

    With the arrival of the Queen, the castle is reborn, it is known for its glory, becoming the sovereignty of the sovereign, the place where it retired during the summer.

    In 1938, at the death of Queen Mary, the castle is inherited by Princess Ileana, in possession of which remains until 1948, when the royal family is forced to go into exile and the communist regime is established, and the castle is nationalized. In 1957 it became a Museum of Medieval Art and History, functioning as such until 2009, when it is returned to the heirs of the Queen, the children of Princess Ileana. The current owners are Archduke Dominic of Habsburg and his two sisters, Maria Magdalena and Elizabeth.

  • Visit the oldest clay potteries shops in Horezu and sample various artisan cheese’s and other traditional romanian cuisine.
  • Take a trek into the forests and meadows to see wild flowers  and explore Oltetului orges and the Polovragi cave.
  • Savour lunch made from fresh, simple ingredients at the local guesthouse.

Overview:

Experience the traditional Oltenian way of life on a private tour from Craiova, to Transalpina Road and on to the rural villages of Horezu, Polovragi  and Ranca Resort. We may visit Oltetului Gorges in the morning. The Polovragi Cave is  part of theOltetului Gorges. You can admire the Jurassic limestone formations, formed over centuries, including so-called "tears of the earth".

Transalpina is the highest road in Romania and the entire Carpathian Mountains, both in and outside the country, reaching the maximum altitude (2145 m) in the Urdele Pass. Transalpina crosses the Parang Mountains from N to S, being parallel to the Olt Valley and the Jiu Valley.
The road took its name from the Latin "Transalpina" (the country beyond the mountains), as it was called in the old Latin texts and maps of Tara Romaneasca, and it is called the "King's Road", because King Carol II, after who rebuilt it in 1938, inaugurated him by going along with the royal family himself. Although it is taller, much older and more beautiful than the Transfagarasan.
Transalpine was built by the Roman armies on their way to Sarmisegetusa, paved with stone by King Carol II after the 1930s and rebuilt by the Germans in the Second World War, after which it was forgotten by the Roman authorities. The fact that it was forgotten and became a difficult way to go with normal cars helped Transalpina to keep untouched the wilderness and special charm that few places in the country have. It is among the few roads in the country that can be reached by car up to the clouds and even above them.
The most important tourist attractions in the area are Polovragi Cave, Muierii Cave, one of the longest caves in Romania, discovered even in the Dacian times, about 500 meters from the monastery, right where the Oltet Gorge begins. The Oltet Gorges Icoana Monastery or Polovragi Monastery, and Horezu, with an old tradition in clay processing.
About the Olte? Gorge, the Polovragi Cave and the Polovragi Monastery we can say that it represents the connection between nature and faith in God. A few kilometers away from Polovragi is the Muierii Cave, a shelter in the troubled times for the people in this corner of the world, but also for the ancestor of the bear today.
Oltetului Gorges, the narrowest canyon in Romania and Europe
they are not very long, they are only 1.5km, but there is no tourist who has crossed the area and does not know about them. They are spectacular and have some vertical walls that fascinate you. A walk through the Oltet Gorge will make you feel so small and unimportant in nature! (It is advisable to take this walk on a sunny day or at least not in a rainy day because of stones drops). It is also one of the places frequented by climbers and passionate photographers alike. Here is also the famous Polovragi Cave, whose underground galleries reach 9000 meters long.
The Olte? Gorges were declared a protected natural area of ??national interest. The natural reserve area is 150 hectares, including the Polovragi Cave, which is also a protected natural area. In some places, the Olte? water flows through a perfect hau, 25 meters from the road level and is hard to notice. One curiosity is that river water has a constant temperature of 9-10 degrees Celsius, regardless of the season.

The Polovragi Monastery is in the immediate vicinity of the cave with the same name. The worship cave has an age of more than 500 years. It is customary that every year, by St. Elijah (July 20), a special  "Sunday" is to be held at the monastery, attended by both Gorj, Wallachians and Transylvanians.
