Drobeta Turnu Severin

Heroes Monument

Drobeta-Turnu Severin  is a city in Mehedinți County, Oltenia, Romania, on the left bank of the Danube, below the Iron Gates.
The city was originally linked by historians with the Roman Empereor Severus[disambiguation needed], however its name is derived from Old Church Slavonic severno ("northern"), from sěverъ, "north", being the "city of the north". The name of Turnu ("Tower") refers to a tower on the north bank of the Danube built by the Byzantines.
