From here hikings can be organised in surrounding mountains, to Duruitoarea Waterfall, the "Dragoș Vodă"aurochs reserve and many other destinations: visits to nearby monasteries (Secu, Sihăstria, Neamț, Văratec, Agapia), Borsec and Vatra Dornei resorts etc.

In town there are four 2- and 3-star hotels and the Durău Monastery built in wood in 1835 (partly visible in photo).

The name Retezat means "choped off", refering perhaps at the aspect of the top (although from photo doesn't seem to look "choped off").


Before the people to give names to entire ranges, they gave names to peaks and later they named the ranges from their tallest peak and extended the name of Retezat Peak to the entire range because visually this peak seemed the tallest (this happened before the technological age, when heights were established precisely).


Retezat is the least humanly affected range in Romania, with the largest and best preserved old growth forests, a true wonder of wilderness in the heart of Europe. They are also the most humid mountains in Romania, with a huge number of springs, brooks and rivers and with 58 permanent glacial lakes, 38% of all glacial lakes in Romania.

Eforie Sud Resort, Dobruja

Eforie Sud Resort, Dobruja











Eforie Sud was founded by the aristocrat Ion Movilă in 1899, when he erected a hotel named Băile Movilă (Movilă Spa). In 1928, the spa was renamed Carmen-Sylva, after the pen name of Queen Elisabeth of Romania. In 1950, after the establishment of the Communist regime, the name of the city was changed to Vasile Roaită to honor a railway worker shot dead during the Griviţa Strike of 1933. In 1962, the city was renamed yet again to Eforie Sud.


Formally, the city is composed of Eforie Sud, the administrative centre, and Eforie Nord, a dependent village.

Oravița / Deutsch-Orawitz / Oravicabánya / Оравица

Oravița / Deutsch-Orawitz / Oravicabánya / Оравица













In 17th century, Agadici is mentioned here, a Serbian village founded during the Turkish occupation and bearing a Turkish name. Turks started mining works but left them in 1688. In 1703, a German Catholic parish is mentioned, certifying that at that time the Austrian empire already colonized German workers here. Soon after, 693 Tyrolean workers are brought here. In 1723, the Banat mining administration was moved from Timișoara to Oravița and in 1729 the first mining school is opened here.


After the destruction of Moscopole (the main Aromanian settlement in Balkans, now in Albania) in 1769, wealthy Aromanian merchants settled the town. The Aromanian and German communities were defining culturally the locality in late 18th - early 19th century. The Aromanians built in 1817 the beautiful Theatre, the oldest preserved in Romania.


In 1854, the oldest railway on the territory of Romania is built, linking Oravița with Baziaș, a small locality on Danube, from where the coal was transported upstream to the industrial centers in Austrian empire.


In 1863 is opened the Oravița - Anina Railway, the second oldest in Romania and one of the finest in Europe, nickanmed "The Banat Semmering".


In 2002 were living here 11,972 Romanians, 376 Roma, 222 Germans, 155 Hungarians, 84 Serbs, 17 Czechs, 15 Ukrainians etc.


The Orthodox church in photo was built by Aromanians in Baroque style in 1784.
