Trascău Mountains




Situated in the east of Western Carpathians (Apuseni), they have a great complexity of landscapes. Among the main attractions are the Vânătările Ponorului karst area, Huda lui Papară Cave, the gorges of Râmeț, Turda, Întregalde, Aiud, the valley of Arieș etc. Isolated from the region of Szekely people in Eastern Carpathians, there are the two Hungarian villages of Rimetea / Torockó and Colțești / Torockószentgyörgy.

Piatra Neamț




The name may date from Antiquity, as the Dacian Petrodava is inside the modern city's limits. Petrodava was the most important Dacian center east of Carpathians

Piule - Iorgovanu Mountains




Also known as Retezaul Mic (Small Retezat), are situated south of Retezat, linking them with the Godeanu Mountains. These are wild mountains, little visited.

They have a developed karstic relief. Some rivers spill into the West Jiu but most of the waters enter into an underground network and come out as Izbucul Cernei ("Cerna's Source") in Cerna Valley. The underground water course in 16 km long.


Maxim height: 2081 m.

Thank you!

Many places presented here are unknown to most Romanians. And there are lot to come, especially from Transylvania, with even finer sceneries and mysterious athmosphere. But for now, a place that was presented many times, now with some good pictures:


Royal Peleș Castle

View of Sinaia from the Caraiman Peak, 2384 m, situated on the vast Bucegi Plateau (~2000 m)




The castle was inaugurated in 1883, but the construction lasted between 1873 and 1914. The total cost was the equivalent of today 120 million $. There were workers and artisans of various nationalities that contributed at its construction, each with their speciality, as noted by Queen Elisabeth:

Italians were masons, Romanians were building terraces, the Gypsies were coolies. Albanians and Greeks worked in stone, Germans and Hungarians were carpenters. Turks were burning brick. Engineers were Polish and the stone carvers were Czech. The Frenchmen were drawing, the Englishmen were measuring, and so was then when you could see hundreds of national costumes and fourteen languages in which they spoke, sang, cursed and quarreled in all dialects and tones, a joyful mix of men, horses, cart oxen and domestic buffaloes.

Some recreation room probably


Armory






The Moorish Room







You can see a virtual tour of several rooms here.




Bonus: the Cantacuzino Castle (1911) in Bușteni, few km from Sinaia

Dinogetia




Dinogetia was an ancient Geto-Dacian settlement and later Roman fortress located on the left bank of the Danube in Dobruja, near the place where it joins the Siret.

The Geto-Dacian settlement was conquered by the Romans and transformed into a boundary fortress.

Dinogetia increased its importance, especially after the abandon by the Romans of the Dacian province. The fortress had been inhabited until the end of the VIth or the beginning of the 7th century when, in the context of Phokas' rebellion, the entire limes of Lower Danube had collapsed under the pressure of Slav tribes.

Costinești




In the 1960s, it evolved from a small fishing village to a summer destination, most popular with young people and students.

Opposite to one of the northern beaches, the shipwreck of Evangelia, a Greek ship (originally a Liberty ship) beached there in the late 1960s, has proven quite popular with the tourists.

Because Costineşti is mostly frequented by youngsters, the atmosphere tends to be livelier than in the other Black Sea resorts.
