In Chiscau is one of the greatest drip stone caves in Romania, called Bear's Cave. It's is about 500 m long, an it is full with really great drip stones in different shapes. It got its name from one particular that shapes a bear. There is very cold inside, I shuld bring some warmer cloths the next time.
Around you can buy o lot of souvenirs from the market places, or stands. Stones, hats, etc. make sure you buy authentic things because there are some stends with 'Mde in China' inscriptions. Things are not expensive and you can find some beautiful things.
