Description of the destination Alba

In Alba County there are many rural settlements of great touristic interest, caves and glaciers, canyons, whose beauty stands out especially during folk concerts, performances and festivals held annually.
Alba County contains part of the Apuseni Mountains - some of the most charming mountains of Romania.
Gaina Mount - 1484 m - is located partially within the Alba County (at 8 km. south-west of the locality Avram Iancu), on witch plateau takes usually place the great folk festival “The Girls’ Fair”, every year the 20th of July. The highest peak in the Apuseni Mountains is located in Alba County (Curcubata Peak - 1849 m.). There are also interesting: the Great Mount, the Trascău Mountains, the Sureanu Mountains.

Scarisoara Glacier (located in Bihor Mountains) is an ice cave, one of the few in the world at this altitude. Glacier thickness is 18 to 20 m and it does neever melt completely. To visit the glacier we recommend you to seek a local guide, because a part of the way is hidden, unmarked. The Glacier is about 2-3 hours of walk of the locality Gârda de Sus. Near Scarisoara Glacier you can also visit the Vartop Glacier and the Zgurasti Glacier.
The Gorges from the Basin of Râmet Valley with steep roofs and surfaces with multiple caves, arches, towers, cornice or structural shelfs, where you can find the edelweiss and the white garden pink.

The Arieş Gorge is one of the most beautiful in the area, the best known and most popular narrow paths in the country.
Ighiel mountain lake (22 km from Ighiu) is the largest karst lake in Romania on the upper river with the same name, in the southern mountains Trascau. Sureanu mountain lake, Oasa lakes (33 km. from Sugag), Tau, Nedeiu.

Detunata stones (geological reservation) consists of two peaks of volcanic basalt: “Detunata Goala” and “Detunata Flocoasa” (at 1200 m altitude).

The Red Cliff (at 3 km from Sebeş), geological reservation of 10 hectares which includes sculptural forms (columns, towers, pyramids), on the right bank of the Secas river, shaped by water that has stubbornly worked for 60 million years.

The Roman Fortress of Roşia Montană; Negrileasa – floral reservation; the Craiului plain from Scarita - Belioara - Botanical reservation. You can visit here the Emperor’s beech (near Muncelu), a large old tree whose leaves never fall, the Avram Iancu Oak - tree that is over 500 years, Eminescu's linden tree - Blaj.
The Alba Iulia Fortress, the Alba Caroli Fortress; the ruins of the Dacian Fortress - Capalna (IInd century BC – 106 AD) on the Cetate Hill (at 610 m altitude), included by Burebista in the defense system of Sarmizegetusa Regia; the ruins of the Dacian Fortress in Craiva (IInd century BC – Ist century AD); the center of the Dacian tribe of Puglia (ancient Apoulon), about which Ptolemy wrote in his 'Geography'; the vestiges of the Roman settlement Brucla - Aiud (II-III century AD), now only ruins; the fortress of Aiud (XIII-XV centuries), is one of the oldest urban fortresses in Transylvania; the Fortress “Cetatea de Balta” (Ist century BC – Ist century AD), now only ruins; the Tauti fortress (1276); the Uioara-Teleky fortress (XIII century), now only ruins; the Romanic settlement Ampelum-Zlatna; the Romanic salt mines - Ocna Mures; the Princely Palace - Alba Iulia (XIII-XVIII centuries), impressive building, dating from about 5 centuries, restored by Isabella and John Sigismund (the mid-century XVI), former residence of Michael the Brave (1599-1600); the Martinuzzi -Vintu de Jos Castle (1550), built by Gh. Martinuzzi, bishop of Oradea and governor of Transylvania.
