Romania Travel Impressions May 2013 / Sarmizegetusa and Blidaru by Dan Dimancescu

TEN-DAYS in ROMANIA / May 2013:
Sarmizegetusa, the Dacian Sanctuary and capital, is turning a corner. Guards now patrol the site from 8am to 8pm during tourist season to prevent damage. Landscaping is underway to clear brush and trees. And new digs are planned for the summer to better determine where numerous dwellings were located. Photos bottom show from ltf to rt, Dacian sanctuary circular wall, view on the trail leading up to the Blidaru fortress 25 km away, and walls of the Blidaru fortress.
