During the 1st of December holiday, I was lucky to spend a couple of hours in Cāmpulung Muscel town, located in southern Romania, in the historic province of Valachia and in the geographic region of Muntenia.

After visiting it, I came to the conclusion that it is one of those cities which maintain a true, real and powerful Romanian heritage, at least in terms of architecture, because its' buildings are representative for the history of the region and most important, of the country. Not to mention that it once was the first capital of the Romanian country of Valachia, between 1330 and 1364, when this privilege was given to Curtea de Argeş. This is due to the fact that under the constant pressure of the Hungarians, the Valachians had to unite under a single ruler. It was Basarab I who defeated Carol Robert of Hungary at the battle of Posada, strengthening his army and country so that Hungarians will stay away, beyond the Carpathians.

The city is also known as the mediaeval cultural centre of Romanians, because in this city there were libraries, schools and also the oldest paper manufactury in the country. The first documents in Romanian were written here.

Traditional occupations in the town and in the region include wood processing, pottery, stonemasonry, bakery, traditional alcohol production (wine and ţuica, distilled alcohol) as well as many others. They also make good cakes and pastry.

Those who want to cast a glance into real Romania's heart should go to the old Romanian towns located at the feet of Central (Southern) Carpathians, because these cities developed by constantly gathering goods and people both from the mountains and the lowlands. The other, bigger cities are too cosmopolite, modern and indulge themselves in a hectic, hedonistic way of life.

Back to these days, the buildings show the traces of history.
Although there are quite real and productive means of exploiting the historic heritage of this Romanian town, it seems that the municipality leaders don't get involved too much in improving residents' standard of life, as far as I could see.

I'll let pictures speak for themselves.

By the way, it's the first time I upload pictures on Flickr, I didn't know that there's a limit of 300 MBs per month and that you can't simply take all the BBCode links by only one click and paste them here, as in Photobucket.
Great drawbacks and big mistakes, Flickr...

Sorry for the mess in the pictures, it was a quick passing by and I couldn't concentrate on certain subjects. This is what I could realise during my walk. Hopefully, there will be some volunteers willing to bring in additional material on the subject.

I like a hectic and hedonist life But Campulung Muscel looks all right, some good architecture. What about atmosphere/cafes/restaurants/museums for a day in the town? What is there to do more specifically, since I am intrigued enough to consider a visit?

Nice pictures Cadar. Nice houses...
For me there will always be a big conection between this town and the novel "Ultima noapte de dragoste intaia noapte de razboi" - (Last Night of Love, First Night of War) by Camil Petrescu. Even in the pictures above i was expecting to see Stefan Gheorghidiu passing trough..isn't it?

Have been traveling tot the Bran Castel on the Rucar-Bran pass ??

The yellow Dacia 1300...is one of a kind...

Thanks for the nice photos. They bring back memories from childhood, when I lived there for few years.

Good idea to open this thread Cadīr, Campulung deserves it. Here are some of my photos from August 2010.

This is the Ethnographic Museum, located in a beautiful XVIII-th century boyar house:
