Flooding of the Jiu

Jiu flooding

The Jiu River is now at Code Red because of flooding. A lot of agricultural land has been covered by the Jiu, but not many houses were in danger.

The wooden foot bridge between Filiasi and Bilta has fallen down forever, lost because of the very high flood waters.

Today the roads were open again, and life begins to move as normal.

A good day on the Jiu River

Adrian writes:
We went to the Jiu river today (28.06.2007), to swim and also to try to find river shells for cooking them back at home. In the pictures you can see us having fun and enjoying the refreshing water of the river, but also collecting shells.

The river bank from where we take the shells is covered with vegetation. In the water there are many sunk trees, so it’s quite difficult for us to search for shells.

The photo on the left shows a wide view of the Jiu river, looking downstream, as the water flows past me and Alina in the water.

The photo on the right shows me with the bag where we put the shells. You can see we were lucky to find some big ones, but it was no easy job collecting them all.

In this photo dad holds in his hand 2 interesting ceramic artefacts we found on the border of Jiu river, very similar to those we found at Cerat or even Ostrovu Mare.

Monuments Panorama of the Jiu River

Taken from about the same place as the photos of the storks. You can see, on the left part of the photo, far away the town of Filiaşi and to right perhaps you can make out the wooden bridge across the upper Jiu connecting Filiaşi and Bilta.

Jiu River Hotel
The RSR museum is a strange mixture of a museum, hotel and restaurant, located on the right bank of the Jiu River, just at the southern exit from Craiova.

The owner, Mr Staicu is a very interesting important person in Craiova today, and has many artefacts and mementoes from the Communist era in Romania. RSR stands for Republica Socialistă România and was the formal name of Romania under the Communist rule, which ended with the revolution of December 1989.

The museum holds a lot of communist artefacts and displays, including statues, paintings, even military machines and guns.
