Itinerary

Day 1: 1. HOREZU MONASTERY 2. POLOVRAGI CAVE 3. POLOVRAGI MONASTERY

Stop At: Horezu Monastery (Hurezi Monastery), Str Manastirii Satul Romanii de Jos, Horezu 245800 Romania
In a two day trips, you will see the Horezu Monastery. Considered one of the most beautiful and refined orthodox monasteries, the Horezu Monastery with its 100% authentic Romanian architecture was included in the UNESCO World Heritage from the very beginning, with no sign that anything could ever surpass it.

Your trip to Romania should comprise, among other things, the most visited Romanian monasteries, including the Horezu Monastery, because this is where you can see the highly acclaimed Horezu ceramics, as well as the gorges carved in the mountain walls and the famous stone caves.
Duration: 1 hour

Stop At: Polovragi Cave, Between Horezu And Baia de Fier, Polovragi 217365 Romania
If you have been on expeditions in wet or dry caves before, you will be familiar with the haunting and eerily spiritual feeling you get once you enter the Polovragi Cave, which seems like it belongs to a different realm.

The warm and humid cave hosts many spectacular calcareous formations throughout the galleries that extend for over 10 km, of which only 800 m are open for visitation. Here you can see the Spring of Hope, the Bloody Vault, the White Room, the Divine Chamber, the Grim Reaper, the Dacian Oven, the King and Queen, Snow White and the Dwarfs’ House.
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Polovragi Monastery, Polovragi Village, Gorj county, Polovragi 217365 Romania
We are setting out on a journey through time, taking an imaginary leap to 500 years ago, when the Polovragi Monastery, a historical monument of great cultural and spiritual value, was built.

In addition to the superb religious artwork, here you get to see historical evidence of our existence and endurance on these lands, as well as a testament to our perseverance and faith in God.
Duration: 30 minutes

Day 2: 1. THE WOMEN’S CAVE 2. THE CONSTANTIN BRANCUSI ENSAMBLE IN TARGU JIU

Stop At: The Women's Cave ( Pestera Muierii ), Baia de Fier Village, Baia de Fier 217030 Romania
The first question that comes to mind when you decide to take a private trip to the Women’s Cave, the most visited cave in Romania, is how it got this curious name.

The Romanian people have had a long and turbulent history, so in order to survive in these conflict-ridden lands, the men, being severely outnumbered, would have to resort to guerrilla warfare, while women and children would hide in caves such as this one to protect as much of their family as they could.

You will come into contact with ancient civilizations over 30.000 years old, which should be enough to make this trip worthwhile. But what we think will really peak your interest is the giant animal graveyard filled with calcified cave bear skeletons, as well as remains of other wild animals, like lions, hyenas, wolves, boars, foxes and even wild goats who had the misfortune to venture into the bears’ den.
Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Table of Silence, Strada Calea Eroilor, Targu Jiu 210163 Romania
Even if you do not harbor a passion for sculptural masterpieces, a Brancusi exhibit is a must-see for anyone taking a trip to Romania. The Constantin Brancusi Sculptural Ensemble in Targu Jiu, also known as the “Calea Eroilor” Memorial (Heroes Way), is more than a beautiful display of stone and wood craftsmanship, it is a symbol of the Romanian spirit.

The ensemble consists of four sculptures, laid out on a 1275 m axis – The Table of Silence, The Chairs Alley, The Gate of the Kiss and the Infinity Column/Endless Column, which surprise through their simple, yet deeply symbolic design.
Duration: 30 minutes

Stop At: Gate of Kisses, Strada Calea Eroilor, Targu Jiu 210163 Romania
