Dolj

Dolj County impresses less with its spectacular landscapes, and more with the cultural richness it hides, the result of a long, tumultuous, and very interesting history, encapsulated today in the many museums in Craiova. The former port city of Calafat, now a small chic town, a segment of the EuroVelo 6 international cycle route, and several nature reserves add beautifully to the tourist landscape of Dolj.

The Danube floodplain is probably the most interesting ecosystem found in the county. The vast sandy soils here are suitable for various crops, especially vines. In fact, here you'll find local, unpretentious wine, called "zaibăr", but also Dăbuleni melons or leek dishes that are very popular in southern Romania.

Craiova, a flourishing commercial town since the Middle Ages, now the most important cultural center in Oltenia, should be a starting point in your travels in Dolj County. In a few days around the city, you'll learn about the various civilizations and dominions that pervaded these places, stories about local outlaws, and the natural riches of the region, unknown to most tourists.

Continue to the south of Dolj County, where you must visit the former royal vineyards in Segarcea and taste premium wines. Then, make a pit stop in Băilești, to taste the local wine "zaibăr", to see the difference. Don't end your holiday before relaxing on the small beaches of Calafat.

The most active you can get in Dolj County is to cover the whole EuroVelo route. Both banks on either side of the Danube's border between Romania and Bulgaria are recognized as part of the cycling route. Tourists who choose to pass through Romania, cover Dolj County between the localities of Cetate and Dăbuleni, through endlessly flat plains, exposed under the scorching sun, leaving behind often dry, sometimes attractive landscapes.
