Calimanesti-Caciulata resort is considered the "pearl" Olt Valley resorts, due to the wonderful landscapes that can be admired in this area of Romania. The entire area is covered with vast hardwood and softwood forests.
The location of several thermal springs, Călimănești-Căciulata is known as a spa town. During the 20th century, many hotels and treatment facilities were built in Căciulata, a northern area of the town which is close to Cozia Monastery. The Monastery was built by Mircea the Old in 1388.
The area around the town is full of fresh water springs and spa waters that are not in use. The old town was a bit smaller, the island you see on river Olt was bigger and the road was on what is now the river bed. In 1918 it was the major point of invasion in Transylvania.
The town is built along DN7. The second most used road in Romania, used by Romanians to travel up to Transylvania and recently often used to go to Hungary, Austria and many other EU nations.
