The town of Drobeta Turnu Severin is located in southwestern Romania, in the historical region of Oltenia. The city is a popular tourist destination and offers a variety of attractions, including the Historic Water Tower (Castelul de Apă), located at the end of Promenada Crișan, which is a beautiful street to stroll and linger. Furthermore, the Palace of Culture (Palatul Culturii Teodor Costescu) is worth seeing, as well as the churches of the city. For example, the Church of the Resurrection (Catedrala Episcopală Învierea Domnului și Sf. M. Mc. Gheorghe), the Church of Saints Constantine and Helen (Biserica Sfinții Împărați Constantin și Elena) and the Maioreasa Church (Biserica Maioreasa). Much older are the former Roman fortress (Castrul Roman Drobeta), the Roman Bridge (Podul lui Traian), which was the first bridge over the Danube, of which, however, only remains can be seen. Also interesting are the Historical Castle Complex (Cetatea Medievală a Severinului) and the Museum of the Iron Gate Region (Muzeul Regiunii Porților de Fier). You can take a break in the city’s parks. The park (Pădurea Crihala) and the park (Parcul Tudor Vladimirescu) are popular. As everywhere in Romania, you should stop at one of the restaurants, such as on the Promenada Crișan or at the port, which, however, is not a tourist attraction.
