Roads to Băile Herculane, Caraş-Severin County, Banat.
The list of travel posts (below).

 A holiday in Caraş-Severin County and in the nearby places or surroundings , till in Serbia, at the end of summer in early september.



The route started from the capital city toward Caraş-Severin County, by following the national roads through various counties till there. September as a weather was pretty nice enough; the same kind of weather like in a usual month of summer; for instance in june - when as usually there are, at horizon, blue skies covered by fluffy white clouds and when, also,  there are, some moderate winds and, in some days, occasionally, high level of  warmth ...

 Below, I'll add on the list, the travel photos & essays that will be created/edited in the next period of time.

 Bridge over the River Rudăria. Pod peste râul Rudăria. On the Rudăria River in the village Eftimie Murgu, Caras-Severin there is a historical reserve that comprising more water mills.. Pe râul Rudăria, în comuna Eftimie Murgu, Caraş-Severin există o rezervaţie mulinologică cuprinzând mai multe mori de apă cu ciutură orizontală.
All the trip roads were somehow amazing; all the routes chosen have been so very well connected to my soul... That's why, now, in the form of photo essays, I can really mention them as soul journeys through memories.
Anyway, this imperfect vacation (in certain ways, aspects) has fulfilled certain goals; simple wishes of traveling and of seeing from up close, usual places or historical sites. 

Looking back, I think that I can say that it was an wonderful holiday, a fabulous time of traveling, along Danube from Orșova to Drobeta Turnu Severin, to Iron Gates National Park toward Golubac Fortress and then to Negotin, to Kladovo, and again at the shore of blue Danube; or traveling from Herculane and surroundings towards Caransebeș, to the Rudăria River in the village Eftimie Murgu and later to Hobița and Târgu Jiu on the coming back road to home.
More info on Wikipedia: Danube River at Danube Iron Gate National Park;"The Iron Gates (Romanian: Porțile de Fier, Serbian: Đerdapska klisura, Hungarian: Vaskapu-szoros, German: Eisernes Tor, Turkish: Demirkapı) is a gorge on the River Danube. It forms part of the boundary between Serbia and Romania. In the broad sense it encompasses a route of 134 km (83 mi); in the narrow sense it only encompasses the last barrier on this route, just beyond the Romanian city of Orșova, that contains two hydroelectric dams, with two power stations, Iron Gate I Hydroelectric Power Station and Iron Gate II Hydroelectric Power Station.  The gorge lies between Romania in the north and Serbia in the south. At this point, the river separates the southern Carpathian Mountains from the northwestern foothills of the Balkan Mountains. The Romanian side of the gorge constitutes the Iron Gates natural park, whereas the Serbian part constitutes the Đerdap national park."
I'm thankful to all; but especially to my mother - she's the one who build the inner joy of travels and who, also, had understood my passion for photography, for the need of capturing, from a glance of eye, these special memories through the camera lens, just from time to time (as an expression)...

"The Iron Gates *(Romanian: Porțile de Fier, Serbian: Đerdapska klisura, Hungarian: Vaskapu-szoros, German: Eisernes Tor, Turkish: Demirkapı) is a gorge on the River Danube. It forms part of the boundary between Serbia and Romania. In the broad sense it encompasses a route of 134 km (83 mi); in the narrow sense it only encompasses the last barrier on this route, just beyond the Romanian city of Orșova, that contains two hydroelectric dams, with two power stations, Iron Gate I Hydroelectric Power Station and Iron Gate II Hydroelectric Power Station.
The gorge lies between Romania to the north and Serbia to the south. At this point, the river separates the southern Carpathian Mountains from the northwestern foothills of the Balkan Mountains. The Romanian side of the gorge constitutes the Iron Gates natural park, whereas the Serbian part constitutes the Đerdap national park."
Names
In English, the gorge is known as Iron Gates or Iron Gate. An 1853 article about the Danube in The Times of London referred to it as "the Iron Gate, or the Gate of Trajan."
"In languages of the region including Romanian, Hungarian, Slovak, Turkish, German and Bulgarian, names literally meaning "Iron Gates" are used to name the entire range of gorges. These names are Romanian: Porțile de Fier (pronounced [ˈport͡sile de ˈfjer]), Hungarian: Vaskapu, Slovak: Železné vráta; Turkish: Demirkapı, German: Eisernes Tor, and Bulgarian: Железни врата (Železni vrata). An alternative Romanian name for the last part of the route iDefileul Dunării, literally "Danube Gorge".
In Serbian, the gorge is known as Đerdap (Ђердап; [d͡ʑě̞rdaːp]), with the last part named Đerdapska klisura (Ђердапска клисура; [d͡ʑě̞rdaːpskaː klǐsura]) from the Byzantine Greek Κλεισούρα (kleisoura), "enclosure" or "pass."

"Defileul Dunării*, also locally known as Clisura Dunării (Serbian: Банатска Клисура, Banatska Klisura) is a geographical region in Romania. It is located in southern Banat, along the northern bank of the river Danube. Clisura Dunării is situated between river Nera in the west, and Gura Văii or Cazanele Dunării in the east.

The area includes the municipality of Orşova and the town of Moldova Nouă, as well as several communes (Socol, Pojejena, Coronini, Gârnic, Sicheviţa, Berzasca, Sviniţa, Dubova, Eşelniţa, Iloviţa, and Brezniţa-Ocol)." Name
"The Romanian name is Defileul Dunării. River Danube is called Dunărea in Romanian. The sometimes used local name clisura derives from Serbian; Klisura means "pass", "gorge", "gate" and "sharp rock" in Serbian. It is derived from the Greek kleisoura, which in turn derives from the Latin clausura, meaning "closed entity", ide est "monastery, castle, fort"The term was applied by the Byzantines to fortified mountain districts controlling important passes."



"The rock sculpture of Decebalus* is a 42.9 m in height and 31.6 m in width carving in rock of the face of Decebalus, the last king of Dacia, who fought against the Roman emperors Domitian and Trajan to preserve the independence of his country, which corresponded to modern Romania. The sculpture was made between 1994 and 2004, on a rocky outcrop on the river Danube, at the Iron Gates, which form the border between Romania and Serbia. It is located near the city of Orșova in Romania.
It is the tallest rock sculpture in Europe.
