train right
  • We drive 2,5 hours from Timisoara to arrive at Anina train station. On our way, we will stop in Carasova, an old Croatian ethnic village for a short walk to see village life in Semenic National Park.
  • The oldest railway in Romania is not electrified – so prepare for slow scenery on a steam train ride! Known as Semeringul Banatean, the Oravita-Anina steam train goes through open plains, rolling hills, viaducts and tunnels in Semenic National Park, offering spectacular views of the wild, open area and a great way for you to relax and let your mind wander!
  • The Bigar Waterfall has achieved international fame as one of Romania’s top attractions! The small streams running on moss and soft grass that miraculously grows on rock create a unique scene you will never forget!
