Veterani cave

This cave can be found in the Ciucarul Mare, on the left side of the Danube, circa 5 m above the general level of the water. It is well-known from historic times, a good strategic point for daci, romans, as well as germans and turcs, as it gave shelter to more soldiers those times. The name is given to it after an austrian soldier called Veterani, who fortified the cave building a wall which was protected by some soldiers from until the water. On the right side of it there is a natural whole where even light comes in, which was also build upon. This one was one of the earliest caves used for military purposes in Europe. The reservoir for water and other signs on the walls are still visible nowadays. The access is from the Danube.
