In my opiniom, the best option is to see this from a boat that you can take from Orsova so you don't have any problem with parking along the national road.

A mighty statue over a mighty river! Even if it's raining or cloudy, you still have to visit King Decebal's statue at the "Cazanele Dunarii" section of the Danube. It's the biggest statue in Europe! Take a Danube cruise for the full experience!
