Timisoara to Retezat National Parc
If you travel to Timisoara in the summer and you would like a weekend in the fresh air, I recommend the most sublime and complex mountain from all geographical areas of Romanian Carphatian Mountains: the Retezat Mountains.
Within this Park there are over 20 peaks that exceed 2000 meters and at least 80 glacial lakes.
Only 3 hours trip from Timisoara by car. You pass through Lugoj, Caransebes and almost reach Hateg, when you turn right for Gura Zlata.
