2) Bigar Waterfall, a world unique waterfall

The small Bigar Waterfall was rapidly shifted from its off the beaten track isolation in 2013 when The World Geography placed it in the first position of its 8 Unique Waterfalls Around the World guide. From that moment on, this moss-covered falls became the most famous attraction from Caras-Severin, one of the most beautiful counties in Romania.

This with iconic waterfalls and unique lakes, Bigar Waterfall is located in Aninei Mountains, exactly on the 45th north Parallel. What makes this waterfall rare and spectacular is the way the water spring spreads over the moss of the cliff, plunging in many tiny shreds in the Minis River. Surfing to surface some 200 meters before the waterfall, the spring flows rapidly and noisy to its final destination.

3) The Tunnel of love

An old, abandoned railway track segment in Romania, nicknamed the Tunnel of Love, was recently included among the European Union’s hidden treasures. The track, between the cities of Otelu Rosu and Caransebes in Romania, is one of the 28 hidden treasures on the Rediscover Europe list compiled by the European Parliament.

 It’s a magical, romantic place to discover. Glittering light filters through the trees, streaking the air and dappling the earth, giving the railway a mesmerizing photographic charm.

4) Prometheus Statue at Vidraru Dam

The Vidraru arch dam on the bank of the Argeş River in Romania is an engineering jewel. Built in 1966 to create hydroelectricity, it was the fifth largest dam in Europe at the time. It required 42 kilometers of tunnels, over a million hard rock extracted from underground and nearly a million cubic meters of concrete to build, plus the loss of about 80 builders’ lives.

The vast dam is itself worth a visit, and those who do will also catch a glimpse of a statue of Prometheus watching over the dam from atop Pleșa Mountain, holding a flash of lightning in his hand to symbolize electricity. The ancient Titan—who in Greek mythology stole fire from Mount Olympus and gave it to humans—looks like a modern-day superhero backdropped by the Frunţii Mountains and Ghiţu mountains that surround Lake Vidraru.
