    Close to the town hall, there's a casino-museum built in the 1860s. Believe it or not, there's a 200-year-old giant sequoia tree in front of it.

    There are 16 natural springs in this area. Since they contain large amounts of sulphur, which has healing powers, the air you breathe may smell a bit strange.

    According to a legend, Hercules, tired after his many battles, stopped here to bathe and rest. That's why the Romans, who ruled over the area and later helped it prosper, decided to name the spa after him.

    Six statues of Hercules have been discovered so far, but the 1 in the town centre is a bronze replica from 1874.

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Many of the Romanians that were in Baile Herculane went to this little poolsnext to the river to bathe their legs in the warm and hot waters. The water comes straight out of the mountain and is quite hot at the first pool. The second pool is wasrm water. And then it flows into the river. I also enjoyed it for a half hour and i have to say it was very nice.

    Stinker on the other hand couldn't be temped. So he stayed at the side. Watching..
