Jiu Gorge National Park entrance tickets

Stormy waters, paths to cross, sights to admire, sunrises and sunsets, spiritual stops, welcoming people. We look forward to seeing you all.

Leaving Tg-Jiu to the north on the national road 66 (Tg-Jiu - Petrosani) the road leaves on the right Curtisoara locality, documented from the 15th century during the reign of Vlad Voda the Monk.

The name Curtisoara may come from the presence of a royal court or because of the nearby Roman camp. Here is the Curtisoara Ethnographic Museum, arranged between 1968 -1975, which offers visitors pieces of peasant furniture, ethnographic objects and Gorj costumes.

Near the town of Bumbesti Jiu is the Roman camp, apparently built during the reigns of Emperors Septimus Severus and Antonun Caracala, by the First Cohort of Britain, Aurelia Antoniniana Militaria.

At the entrance to the Jiu gorge you can see the ruins of the Visina Monastery, founded by the ruler Mircea cel Batran (1386-1418) whose patron saint is the Holy Trinity. About 35 km from Tg-Jiu on the left bank of the Jiu is the Lainici Monastery, which has as its patron saint the Entrance to the church of the Mother of God.

Lainici Monastery was built between 1812 and 1847 by the boyars of the region on a hill overlooking the Jiu Gorge. It houses beautiful interior frescoes dating from 1860 and an iconostasis composed of Byzantine-style icons. 

Tickets are valid for 7 days after the entrance scan.
