Landmarks and tourism

Kladorub lies on the foundations of an ancient settlement - Konbustika (Conbustica), marked on a Roman road map. On this place there are remains of an ancient camp of Roman auxiliary troops - a stone fortification with rectangular shape and an area over 2 hectares. The findings of imported Roman pottery and metal objects suggest that this happened in the first century. After the Dacian wars of Emperor Trayan, the military unit camping at this location has been moved, and the fort was converted into a civilian fortified settlement. The site is located east of the modern village.

At about 10 km northwest of Kladorub is located the Rabisha lake, which is the largest inland lake in the country and a great place for camping, fishing and water sports.
