Some of the top touristic attractions nearby include Iron Gates Hydro Power Plan Museum, Gura Văii Vârciorova Nature Reserve, The Danube’s Big Boilers and Ciucaru Mare Mountain.

“A Mercure hotel on the Danube Riviera, one of the country’s most fascinating tourist destinations, further strengthens the attractiveness of the area, draws international tourists, and brings modern industry standards and practices. This agreement will grow and consolidate Accor network in south-western Romania, a key market for the group in the Eastern Europe region,” says Maria Drăgulin, Accor Development Director for Romania, Bulgaria, Moldova and the Czech Republic.

“As an entrepreneurs and investors in the Mehedinți County, we have always been great supporters of its tourism potential. There are so many valuable experiences we can offer to travelers from Romania and abroad and so many untapped opportunities when it comes to promoting our destination”, stated Sacha Dragic, main investor and partner of the project.

“We chose to join hands with a leading international hospitality group such as Accor, to offer our visitors a world-class hotel and professional services to go with it. Also, we did it to connect our hotel to one of the largest marketing and distribution networks worldwide and to make it visible to travelers from all corners of the globe, planning to develop further the hospitality on the Danube River,” adds Eduard Koler, investor and representative of Queens Horeca Management, as partner of the project.
