About destination

Alba Iulia is a beautiful city in central Romania, in Transylvania, which lies on the river Mures. Following our route, this destination can be visited from Belgrade to Timisoara or from Bucharest. Alba Iulia is the site of several key historical events in Romania, mainly thanks to the heroic struggle for the social and national freedom of Romanians in Transylvania, as well as uniting with other Romanians of Vlach and Moldova. The pleasant climate and rich fertile land contributed to the fact that Alba Iulia was inhabited since ancient times and has built this settlement since the 1st century among the most extensive wine regions. As the main attraction, we point out Citadel in the upper town with seven towers in a starlike form built between 1716 and 1735 by Giovanni Morando Visconti. Within the massive fortifications of the Alba Iulia are the Roman Catholic Church, the Batthyaneum Library, the Roman Catholic Diocese, the Orthodox Church, the National Unification Museum – the Babylon Building, the Sala Union, the Apor Palace, the Prince\’s Palace and the Alba Iulia University. The whole region is famous for its natural attractions, the preservation of tradition and cultural events.

 

Only 75 km from Alba Iulia there is the village of Rosia Montana in western Transylvania, which is known as one of the largest golden finds in Europe. The main tourist attractions of this \”golden village\” are the ancient Roman mines and the Mining Museum where you can see traditional tools used for gold processing, documents and pictures regarding gold extraction in the area. The whole region is famous for its natural attractions, the preservation of tradition and cultural events.
