This place is a real gem. Spoiled by decay, but hopefully it will resurrect in the coming years. Lots of hiking trails and treatment options

We enjoyed our walk to the historical center of Herculane but it is a pitty that the beautiful buildings are not all in the process of renovation, we discovered a lot of public medicinal baths that were used in Ceausescu's time but now they are...More

this is a place loaded with history. Luckily you may still see the wonderful handcrafted iron and wood buildings, which are fighting the time and the elements. Some refurbishing work started but it's still far concerning the place's true potential. Some touristic oriented key investor...More

The whole place presents itself as having a glorious and noble past. Emperors and kings visited this place. I mean, Empress Sissi stayed here for 6 weeks. The casino (all in ruins) still keeps the leasure of an aristocratic past, as well as the pools...More

Too bad. The neglected place is untreated and is not invested in tourism at all. The building is an architectural gem and the historical basis for this entire city is neglected and untouched. Unfortunately, there are no restaurants or businesses in the area. Too bad....More

I would suggest Afrodita. If you are not staying there, they accept guests from outside the hotel, but need to pay. There is also a rudimentary place on Vicol street, 5 RON per day, or 7 springs-7 izvoare, which is farther... More
