All these places have a lot of charm.

Some of them have the typical decaying look of the Soviet era, but they can be renewed and they´ll look great easily,.

Thanks man, keep them coming.

Thank you!



Some more from the recent trip:









Periprava / Періправа, Danube Delta








Those are feral horses, offsprings of those released into wilderness by locals some decades ago.

Letea village and Forest, Danube Delta - by me







Letea / Летя
























Letea Forest near Periprava. Letea forest is the oldest natural reserve of Romania (1930) and the initial nucleus of Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve.


Presently, is one of 18 strictly protected areas inside DDBR, where the tourists' access is forbidden.


My images are taken from a small portion outside the strictly protected area, near Periprava, where there are not dunes.


The proper area of the forest is characterized by a relatively large sand desert (~30 x 8 km, the largest sand field in Europe) with dunes up to 15 km long and 3-8 m high and the forest grows in strips between these dunes, as you can see in the satelitte photo:














A small area of the forest growing on dunes is open for tourists near Letea village (video not by me):

Poenari Castle, Vidraru Dam and Argeș Gorges













Poenari Castle

The castle is located on a cliff, on a canyon formed on the Argeş River, close in Făgăraş Mountains.


Poenari Castle was erected around the beginning of the 13th century by the rulers of Wallachia. In the 15th century, realizing the potential for a castle perched high on a steep precipice of rock, Vlad III the Impaler repaired and consolidated the structure, making it one of his main fortresses.


To reach the castle, visitors need to climb 1,480 steps.


The abysses, crags and forests growing on rocks make an extremely wild landscape, home to many bears. Just near the castle live these days three she-bears with cubs that come almost every night at the hotel at the foot of the cliff. Unfortunatly, I wasn't aware of this and lost the moment when the bears walked on the street.


Like most hotels and pensions in Romania, this one is confortable, clean and cheap, only 100 lei (23 euro) a room. Far better than some better known touristic countries.








The castle seen from Arefu village






From the road to Vidraru Dam, in Argeș Gorges





From the road and from the hotel







The wild mountain the castle is built on (the peak above the castle)






















Vidraru Dam

The concrete construction was finished in 1965. The lake is 10 km long and has a width of 2.2 km.


The surrounding forests are thriving with bears and other wild animals. The jungle looks untouched and the air is fresh and strong.

The relief of the valleys surrounding the lake is very rugged and hard accesible, even more because of thick forests.


The dam is the tallest in Romania - 166 m and arguable the most spectacular.




Seen from the mountain of Poenari Castle.







Seen from the top of the dam































Argeș Gorges

Are situated between Poenari Castle and Vidraru Dam and are one of the wildest canyons in Romania and perhaps the only one with a road perched on high part of the valley

Land of Muscel












The former Muscel County and Muscel ethnographic zone is now a part of Argeș County.



Câmpulung

Câmpulung was one of the earliest urban settlements in Wallachia, the Transylvanian Saxons contributing to its development by bringing the German urban culture. Câmpulung was the first capital of the feudal state of Wallachia, until succeeded by Curtea de Argeş in the 14th century.




The Negru Vodă Monastery was founded in 1215. The present bell tower and the Princely House are from 17th century, the Abbot House from 18th century and the cells from 1800.



























Nămăești Cave Monastery - certified in 1386, the cave church was dug off at the beginning of 16th century
























Mateiaș WW1 Mausoleum - built in 1928-1935 to keep the bones and celebrate the memory of 2,300 Romanian soldiers that died in the battle that took place in Dragoslavele area in 1916. The mausoleum was extended in 1980-1984.

The Romanian Army intended to invade Transylvania (then part of Austria-Hungary) through Rucăr-Bran Pass but suffered serious defeat. The Kingdom of Romania was composed at the time by Wallachia (now southern Romania) and Moldavia (now Eastern Romania) and as result of defeats in 1916, Southern Romania, including Bucharest, was occupied by Central Powers (Germany and Austria-Hungary), so it was reduced to Moldavian territory. Later, it managed to take back the lands and drive out the Central Powers from Transylvania.

Rucăr - Bran Pass - by me







The best part is the movie.




Rucăr Bran corridor is one o the main passes across the Carpathians. In Middle Age was the major connection between Wallachia and Transylvania, linking the succesive capitals of Wallachia situated in proximity (Câmpulung, Curtea de Argeș, Târgoviște) with Brașov and other centers in Transylvania. In Bran was a custom point, defended by the Bran / Törzburg Castle built by Brassovian Saxons in 1378, which now is the most visited objective in Romania (400,000 visitors in 2010).



The villages across the corridor - Rucăr, Dâmbovicioara, Podu Dâmboviței, Ciocanu, Fundata, Șirnea, Moeciu and others - were traditionally shepherd communities. To these days shepherding is one of the main occupations and ancestral traditions and way of life linked to shepherding are preserved.



The incomparable beauty of the this area situated between Bucegi and Leaota Mountains (to the east) and Piatra Craiului and Iezer-Păpușa Mountains (to the west), make it one of the major touristic regions an one of the finest panoramic roads in Romania.

Turda / Torda












Turda was one of the most important cities of Transylvania, because here were the main salt mines, the salt being medieval Transylvania's main export product. For this reason, some of the earliest mentions of Transylvania are related to the salt exploited at Turda and the Transylvanian Diet was held in this city more than in any other place.



























The Princely Palace, the most precious architectural objective in city, was built around 1500, partly using spolia from the ruins of Potaissa, the Dacian-Roman municipium that was the ancestor of the medieval city.

Initially the building was the seat of Salt Administration, later (after 1526, when Transylvania became an independent principality) was the seat of the voivode of Transylvania. It was here where were held several diets (councils) of the voivodate.

In 1951, in the building was inaugurated the History Museum, hosting among others Roman sculptures discovered in Potaissa.

Turda Salt Mine














The oldest cavities (the present lake) date from the time of Romans, for whom Dacia's salt was at least as precious as its gold deposits. In Middle Age, the salt mine is mentioned in 1075.

The actual halls, presented in photos, date from 17-19th centuries.

The access is made by a 910 m long tunnel (last photo).

Cetățile Ponorului Cave, Apuseni Nature Park














To reach the Cetățile Ponorului Cave, situated close to the cave, I hiked with snow rackets for around 7 hours between Arieșeni Resort and Cetățile Ponorului Chalet.

























After nightfall, I was following what I thought were footmarks of some dude, being easier to spot than the trail blazing. But after finding a bear scat, I realized were the tracks of a dude with fur.
























Cetățile Ponorului Chalet - situated deep in the prehistorical forests of Apuseni Park




























Cetățile Ponorului Cave - tallest cave in Romania - a 76 m portal perforating an 150 m tall wall of a small depression. Around there were footprints of bears, rabbits and other wild animals (see video)

Oradea / Nagyvárad













Oradea (population 196,367, 23% Hungarians) is the Romanian "capital" of Baroque and Secession architecture and one of Europe's most representative cities for these currents.

First certified in 1113 as seat of a bishopric, it was one of Hungarian Kingdom and then one of Austria-Hungary Empire's most important cities, nicknamed "The Little Vienna". The Fortress of Oradea was one of the most important in this part of Europe.





Unirii (Unification) Square
