Things to see in Craiova

Placed in the western part of Wallachia, the city of Craiova boasts a centuries-old history. It was first established by the Dacians and then occupied by ancient Romans. It reached its peak of development in the 19th century, but then started to lose its former glory, i.a., due to numerous epidemics. Now, thanks to the presence of two universities, Craiova has revived as an academic center, but also as a cultural capital of the region. The city is also famous for open-hearted and hospitable residents, whom you’ll surely meet while staying here.  

Architectural attractions of the city include medieval Orthodox churches, e.g., Madona Dudu Church, Cathedral of Saint Demetrius, and outlying Church of Coşuna Monastery. Craiova is also home to one of the Romanian most beautiful prefecture buildings (Prefectura județului Dolj) with park and the urban “chill-out zone” situated just nearby. If you want to learn more about Romanian folklore, visit the Museum of Oltenia in the Băniei House, which is the oldest non-religious structure in Craiova. Another top spot is the neo-baroque Jean Mihail Palace. It hosts the Art Museum and the exhibition of sculptures by Constantin Brâncuşi, a well-known Romanian artist.

A definite must for Craiova first-timers is Nicolae Romanescu Park, located alongside Bulevardul 1 Mai. According to some, it’s the most beautiful natural park in Eastern Europe. You can relax here, spending time in the zoological and botanical gardens, renting a bike or boat, doing sports, or having something to eat. In the historic part of the city center, you’ll find excellent restaurants offering traditional Romanian cuisine. One of the tried and trusted places is Casa Ghnicea on Strada Madona Dudu where not only food but also music and décor will remind you of what country you’re in. Tourists, as well as locals, recommend Carul din Stele on Beharca St. Take a chance to taste tochitură ardelenească – a traditional stew served with mashed potatoes and fried eggs.
