Băile Herculane, 13 September

We broke away from the river at Orşova and headed north to Băile Herculane. Apparently Hercules was worn out by his labors and adventures so he stopped here to bathe in the hot springs and rest up. Many of the Austro-Hungarian buildings (since the spa was good enough for Hercules, it was good enough for Emperor France Joseph and Empress Elisabeth) are in a state of disrepair but for some it looks like there may soon be a positive outcome. This broken place wears a large band-aid so hopefully there is a healing process taking place.
