A historical and ethnographic region, the Hategului Country is in the south-west of Transylvania. It is an area full of archeological vestiges dating back to the days of Dacians.
The Colt Fortress cannot remain unnoticed, built in the abrupt area of the Retezat Mountains and which represented the place that inspired Jules Verne in writing “The Castle of the Carpathians”. In this area there is the Retezat National Park, a mountain-glacial complex where dinosaur fossils were discovered. Those who love hikes and winter sports have here the Rausor Complex, where a sky path was arranged, with cable transport installation.
Although it is called "Country", the term does not imply any political, social or administrative statute.
