La Cazane...

 “La Cazane” is where the Danube contracts between the tall stone walls and the strong currents. Everything gives you the impression that the water is boiling. The 9 km-long defile is a true spectacle of nature and from one end to the other you can see heavenly sceneries and historic relicts of over 2000 years old.

La Cazane,  you can admire the tallest stone statue in Europe – Decebal’s face, 55 m in height and 25 m in width, sculpted in the rocky shore of the Danube. The sculpture is only 6 meters smaller than the Statue of Liberty and was built in the place where the Danube reaches the depth of 120 m. It took 12 artists 10 years, from 1994 to 2004, to sculpt the statue.
