Mehedinti is a county in southwestern Romania. It lies where the Danube River and the Carpathian Mountains meet, and was once part of the Roman province of Dacia. Discount hotels in Mehedinti give visitors access to a land that is rich in culture, history, and natural beauty. This is the place to see the Danube River in all its glory. The spectacular Danube Gorge stretches 120 kilometers (75 miles) from Bazias to the awesome Iron Gates Hydroelectric Dam. A river cruise is the best way to experience this magnificent waterway.
A site not to be missed is the ruin of Trajan’s Bridge. This monument to Roman technology was built in the years 103 to 105 AD, and was the first bridge to span the Lower Danube. Near the northern end of the bridge are the ruins of the Roman Fort of Drobeta. There you can see the remains of baths, altars, and storehouses. Another impressive historical site awaiting guests in budget hotels in Mehedinti is the 13th century Medieval Severin Fortress. The capital of Mehedinti is Drobeta Turnu Severin, said to be the most beautiful Romanian city on the Danube. It dates back to Roman times. Today this city has many sites of interest to visitors, including the Park of Roses. Here you can see the great monument to Romania’s war heroes. Also be sure to visit the Iron Gates Museum and the Arts Museum. The 14th century Vodita Monastery is five miles out of town.
