Day trip to Oradea
Enjoy a short visit to Oradea

Enjoy a short visit to Oradea – picturesque streets adorned with magnificent Art Nouveau buildings, a city with centuries of history behind. Oradea’s architectural heritage is impressive and it earned the city the inclusion in European Art Nouveau Network, alongside important cities such as Budapest, Barcelona or Vienna. Admire old residential palaces who display various influences from the 19th century Romantic Hungarian style and the avant-garde Secession (Vienna) school, to German (Berlin) and end of 19th century French School.

Panoramic visits: the Black Eagle Palace (designed to house cultural halls as a theater, ballrooms or casino’s), the Town Hall Palace – with the Tower open for visitors, the Palace of Justice, or the Moskovitz Palace. The religious edifices showing beautiful ecclesiastical architecture – as the Moon Church (with the mechanism indicating the Moon phases), the Lutheran Evangelical Cathedral, the Roman Catholic Cathedral, the Ursuline Convent, the Capuchin Monastery or the Synagogues (Zion Neologue and Orthodox), speaking about people from different confessions living together and developing the city throughout the centuries.

During the visit we include also another important landmark of the city, recently restored – the Fortress of Oradea, serving both as military and religious purposes. It was the residence for the Roman-Catholic Diocese of Oradea for more than 5 centuries, starting with the 11th century; the inhabitants have found shelter inside the walls during many invasions in the Middle Age, the place being administrated by different rules – Hungarian, Transylvanian, Ottoman or Habsburg.

One lunch could enjoy a tranquil place by the water, at river Crisul Alb, in the middle of the city at Rivo restaurant, or a steak (from “ready to cook’ to “ready to eat” with bio veggies - a concept brought from UK) at Piata9 restaurant, or a fine exquisite Mediterranean food Crinul Alb Restaurant. 

Day trip – Apuseni Mountains
Meziad and Bears’ Caves

The amazing underworld of Apuseni Mountains: Meziad and Bears’ Caves

We start the day driving inside of Apuseni Mountains, upstream Meziad rivulet towards Meziad Cave. One of the oldest and best-known tourist attractions in Romania, it was first described by the well-known Austrian geographer Adolf Schmidl (1863) and was almost completely explored later, at the beginning of the 20th century. There are a few assets that make this place unique: archaeological traces of human inhabiting since the 3rd millennium BC (belonging to Cotofeni culture - the most important transit culture at the bronze age), as well as bear’s cave bone fragments, bat species (international protected) and endemic microscopically organisms, rare minerals layered on guano deposits, and also stunning karst interior formations.

The second attraction of the trip – Bears’ Cave.

This bone-filled cave got its name after founding of 140 bear skeletons inside, a complete cave bear skeleton being embedded in the stone floor of the cave even today. The cave system was first discovered in 1975 when exploratory mining blasting revealed the caverns. They were then explored by a group of scientists who found a massive amount of bones that once belonged to ancient, extinct cave bears that hadn’t walked the Earth for over 27,000 years. In addition to the bear remains, the cave itself is a wonderland of impressive geologic forms, offering several galleries to visit, among which we mention the scientific gallery, the candles gallery and (of course) the bones gallery.

Return to Baile Felix in the afternoon.
