Day 4: Eselnita - Bigar Waterfall - Watermills Park from Eftimie Murgu on Rudăria River

In the morning, enjoy your breakfast, then we will head to one of the most unique waterfalls around the world - Bigar Waterfall!

Part of Cheile Nerei-Beusnita National park, the waterfall is located in Aninei Mountains, exactly on the 45th north Parallel. The small streams running on moss and soft grass that miraculously grows on rock create an unique scene you will never forget! Once you see it, you will understand why Bigar Waterfall has been ranked #1 most beautiful in the world by the World Geography Atlas and has achieved international fame as one of Romania's top attractions.

Only 15 km away, we will discover another fascinating place - the Watermills Park from Eftimie Murgu, UNESCO Patrimony. The chain of watermills adorns Rudaria River on a distance of about 3 km, representing the largest and most spectacular in South-East Europe! The 22 watermills from Eftimie Murgu, are a rare attraction in Romania; more than an open-air museum, these watermills are still used by locals to grind their cereals, following faithfully the tradition of their ancestors. If lucky, we might also find some locals at the spot, grinding their grains, an unique opportunity to witness a timeless tradition!

We end the day back to our pension, with a relaxing time by the pool, remembering the beauty of this day and enjoying the last sunset on the banks of the Danube. Optional dinner at the pension and overnight.
