Many experiences and a lot of energy in visiting this beautiful region of Romania characterized by many environmental excellences such as the karst phenomena of Cetatile Ponorului, the structured relief of Sesul Padis or the labyrinth of the Lumea Pierduta Plateau. To celebrate so much beauty and after walking for hours, what could be better than a bottle of ice cold beer paired with a Romanian sausage grilled over a fire with the background of a guitar played by one of the area’s regular visitors? Here are the simple pleasures of life!
