Vacationing in just one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever furnish you with a narrow window into the wider cultural and natural fabric of a region. So be sure to enjoy Western Romania's other cultural and natural attractions. Visit the Coronini Plateau and Caves and Neptune Baths in and around Baile Herculane, about 14 miles (23 kilometers) to the south of Portile de Fier.
If the weather means you don't want to be outside, plan a trip to Western Romania's art museums, history museums and theaters. An excellent way to truly understand a region is by learning about its past. Don't miss the historic palaces while you are here.
Travelers who prefer getting off the main tourist trail are sure to enjoy Portile de Fier's guided nature walks and winery tours. Active travelers searching for outdoor thrills should test their limits by joining a caving or mountain climbing adventure.
You'll be sad to say "La revedere" (farewell) to this memorable place.
