Until you reach us you can make a stop at Corbii de Piatra, the oldest cave monastery in our country (dating from the fourteenth century) and which houses the oldest painting ensemble. The cave monastery from Corbii de Piatr? was excavated in a massive rock wall, about 30 m high and 14.5 m long. Corbii de Piatr? is the only place of worship in Romania that has two functional altars on the same nave.
After arriving in the commune you can visit Lake Invirtita, which is the largest karst lake formed on gypsum (calcium sulfide) in Romania, formed in the nineteenth century. It is located at an altitude of 780, with an area of 2.2 hectares and a depth of five meters.
It is considered an important natural monument in our country, which is part of the M?gura - Nuc?oara nature reserve, along with fir trees in the eastern part of the town.
From us, you can reach by car or bicycle, through the mountains, to Lake Vidraru and from there to Poienari Fortress. The route is mostly forest roads and is not very long.
