It's beautiful outside, isn't it? Spring came, all the trees blossomed and the birds began to fly in flocks.Today I came later from the office, I didn't have time for the PC until now.
But if I still came in, I want to write an article about the jiu national park, which is close to me and connects Gorj county and Hunedoara county.
At the exit of Bumbesti-jiu, which is the last town in Gorj County to the mountains, there is a tourist area with several restaurants and accommodation for travelers who cross the mountain through this place.All the way on this route is dotted with bridges and tunnels (I think there are 40 tunnels) that cross the slopes of the mountain on both sides of the Jiu River.
About 70 years ago, during communism and Ceausescu, this route, which is 45 km long and includes a train line, was 80% made up of 'volunteers', people who were taken there to work!
25 km from Bumbesti-jiu, in the heart of the mountain is the Lainici monastery, this monastery has a special story, which I will tell on another occasion, the idea is that here at the monastery is a holy place of prayer where most I pass by here, stopping for a few minutes to pray to the consecrated icons.
This route takes approximately 39 minutes and at the exit is the town of Petrosani.
the pictures are made by me with the phone!
