The face of king Decebal

Between villages Eselnita and Dubova, in a rocky wall on Danube’s Shore, the tallest stone sculpture of Europe was built: the face of king Decebal.
The fact that it is placed here is not by chance. Right across, on the Serbian shore, is Tabula Traiana, a 2000 year old slate that recalls the military campaigns of Trajan in Dacia and the victories of the Romans.
Decebal’s figure measures 55 meters high and 25 meters long, while the Latin inscriptions were engraved on a stone surface of 1,74 meters high and 4 meters long.
