This morning we take a mountain trip in 4x4s to Sarmizegetusa Regia, capital of the Dacian kingdom. Its appearance is unique, including defensive walls, artificial terraces, temples and sanctuaries. End the day at the nearby 1st century Dacian fort of Costeşti, one of the oldest forts in the Orăştie Mountains. [The morning and afternoon events were swapped, with Costeşti  in the morning, and Sarmizegetusa Regia after lunch. After a long climb up a hill, we had to wait to get our tickets.  But it was worth the visit, and huge!]
