Drobeta-Turnu Severin

A relaxed Danubian town downstream from the once mighty Iron Gates, the old Oltenian city of Turnu Severin was originally founded as the town of Drobeta during the Roman era (which inspired the current hyphenated name). Rebuilt according to a modern plan in the 19th century, the city is now best known for hosting the remnants of Trajan's Bridge, once the longest arch bridge in the world.
