Located on the River Danube at the western county line of Romania’s picturesque Constanta County, Hirsova is ideally situated for embarking and disembarking Danube River cruises to and from the Danube Delta, as well as the neighbouring countries of Bulgaria, Serbia, Hungary and beyond. Spending time in here is worthwhile too though; charming Hirsova boasts plenty of interesting sights in and around the town centre.
The main attractions in Hirsova are the Carsium Museum and the Carsium Fortress. Both feature an array of remarkable exhibits, which offer an insight into the town’s incredible, over 6500-year history and how the Neolithic, Byzantine, Roman and medieval Roman eras influenced Hirsova as it developed on the right bank of the Danube. Master Manole’s Church of St Constantine and Elena – which was completed in 1905 – is well worth a visit too.
