Given the fact that we recently reopened, our first clients were the MISA members, the guests we wait for every year at the event called “The International Yoga Symposium“ here in Herculane. In 2015 the camp started on Wednesday 29th of April and was over on Sunday 10th of May, time which the participants spent meditating daily on the well-known Coronini Plateau.
The Symposium’s schedule is extremely loaded with meditation sessions, conferences, spiritual-artistic shows, special programs trance and, also, the famous Yang Spirals. For further details visit MisaTV.
In the hope that they enjoyed their stay and the services in the new building of our villa Floare de Colt (Edelweiss), they are welcome to represent the start of the summer in 2016 in Baile Herculane, especially here at Floare de Colt Villa.
These days the entire Baile Herculane resort is preparing to celebrate. On 30th of May 2015, at the end of the month, in the Central Park, it will be held the Black Pine of Banat Festival, a traditional event which is this year at its 11th edition. The first edition took place in 2004 initiated in the project called “The Black Pine Woods in Banat – part of the network called Nature 2000” whose goal was to preserve on a long term the sub-mediterranean woods of Pinus Negrus Banatus which were included in the Domogled-Valea Cernei National Park.
Besides the folkloric events to be held by the kids and young people’s artistic groups from local communities from the area of Domogled-Valea Cernei National Park : Baile Herculane and Cornereva ( Caras Severin county ), Pades and Tismana ( Gorj county ), Baia de Arama, Ponoare, Isverna, Obarsa, Closami ( Mehedinti county) , there will also be a contest organized in traditional style included in the festival for pupils with the theme Black Pine of Banat, contest which will be juried and prized.
The organizers of this edition of the festival are the administration of the Domoglad-Valea Cernei Nation Park and the staff of the city hall of Baile Herculane. We invite the tourists who are here in this period on Valea Cernei to take part, together with the locals, in promoting this forestry species specific for Valea Cernei and which became one of the symbols of our resort, by participating to the Black Pine of Banat Festival.
The recent sewage works brought to light Roman remains, a proof to the fact that Herculane is two thousand years old spa. Namely, chambers of an old spa were stumbled upon during the digging effectuated for the water and sewage network in the old center area, nearby the Cerna hotel.
These are unique discoveries in this country. For the moment, four specialists coming from a museum in Caransebes are dealing with the extraordinary discoveries and, though few for now, more people to do the research will add to these four specialists. This represents the undoubtable proof that Herculane is a spa with an extremely old history . Whole thermal pools and plastered treatment chambers were found. It is fantastic, they also found ceramic objects. Also, there was discovered a coin dating from the time period of Comodius the Roman Emperor. It is also probable that remains from the reign period of Traian Emperor will be further found.
Explains the mayor, Nicusor Vasilescu
This would be the biggest and most important discovery of this kind in the country, regarding the degree to which they were preserved, the extent and the age of the findings. The found chambers are approximately two meters tall and the archaeological diggings are still ongoing.
Villa Floare de Colt (Edelweiss) opened even since 2002, was inaugurated as a guesthouse with 8 large and welcoming double rooms and a wide range of facilities until 2013. After a two years break, Floare de Colt (Edelweiss) villa was reopened on 1st of May and welcomes you with a new accommodation building with 12 new rooms, exceptional design and finishings to the highest quality standards. Besides these, the eight existing rooms have been renovated and modernized in order to reach an European Union accommodation level.

Having a restaurant with 40 seats maximum, at Edelweiss villa in Baile Herculane can organize family events (christenings, birthdays, banquets) and corporate events (meetings, training).
Very soon, we will open the pool, sauna and the based therapy. Thus, our customers will benefit from the exceptional healing powers, curative and regenerative of thermal waters from Baile Herculane.
Perhaps you have not thought that the name of the villa really has to do with the flower-queen. Those perennial flowers were found in the past in large number even here, at Herculane on Domogled. It can still be found in the Carpathian Mountains (Rodnei Mountains and Maramures, Obcinele Bucovinei, Rarău, Ceahlău, Ciucaş, Bucegi Mountains, Fagaras, Cozia and Retezat), but in Herculane we remember it through kindergarten and Villa Floare de Colt (Edelweiss).
