Visit the inspiring travel destinations of Gorj County!

Gorj, this mythical and magical land, offers the opportunity for an extraordinary journey, often real and sometimes imaginary, along and across of the charming villages hurdled among the hills and under the mountains, of the mountain paths that get lost underneath the majestic pines and along the cold creeks. From the path of the heroes that cuts the city of Targu Jiu in half like an axis from beyong time and space, up to the highest peaks of Parang Mountains, from where civilization seems insignifiant, one travels through this land of legends, among the old wooden churches scattered over valleys and hills, through the woods and pastures where life seems endless, and across time itself, from the oldest remnants of history to the modernity that started with Brancusi, forming a unique and authentic space that invites travelers to dream and be inspired.
