Full description
During this trip, the ancient realm of Dobrogea will reveal itself. Three Monuments dating back to the Dacian era, and an important orthodox pilgrimage site dating from the 6th century, will be your destination. Depart from Calarasi Hotel at 8:00 AM. Take a ferry across the Danube near Silistra. Continue to the first stop, Dervent Monastery, which is a place of miraculous healings and exorcism rituals. Travel back in time from the 6th century to the 3rd century. See Saint Andrew's cave, the place where it is believed that the apostle lived for a short time and Christianized the Geto-Dacians in the 1st century.  Explore the remains of Adamclisi, which is a monument built to commemorate the victory of the Roman Army led by the emperor Traian against the Geto-Dacians, who ruled at that time by Decebal. The monument Tropaeum Traiani (the trophy of Traian) dating from 109 A.D. celebrates the annexation of the province Dacia to the Roman Empire after the second Roman-Dacian war (105-106 A.D.).
