The Romanian of Craiova is visible towards the top of this orthorectified image. Romania’s 6th largest city and capital of Dolj County, is situated near the east bank of the River Jiu (best observed in the full image) in central Oltenia.

It is a longstanding political center, and is located at approximately equal distances from the Southern Carpathians (visible to the North upon opening the full image) and the Danube River (visible near the bottom of the image). A third river, the Olt, is visible running vertically near the right edge.
