posted in: Music, Romania, Travel 0

Decebalus (Decebal in Romanian) or “The Brave One” was a king of Dacia (originally named Diurpaneus—ruled the Dacians 87 — 106) and is famous for fighting three wars and negotiating two interregnums of peace without being eliminated against the Roman Empire under two emperors.

The Statue of Dacian king Decebalus is a 40-meter high statue that is the tallest rock sculpture in Europe. It is located on the Danube’s rocky bank, near the city of Orşova, Romania.

Under the face of Decebal there is a Latin inscription which reads “DECEBALUS REX – DRAGAN FECIT” (“King Decebal – Made by Drăgan”).
