Ţinutul Secuiesc este o zonă istorică din România, situată în estul Transilvaniei, locuită în majoritate de secui-maghiari şi împărţită în mod tradiţional în scaune, de unde numele de "székely", în română "secui". Ţinutul Secuiesc cuprinde cea mai mare parte din judeţele Covasna şi Harghita, precum şi o parte din judeţul Mureş, trei comune din judeţul Neamţ (Bicaz-Chei, Bicazu Ardelean şi Dămuc), o comună din judeţul Alba (Rimetea) şi o comună din judeţul Bacău (Ghimeş-Făget), înglobate cu ocazia reformei administrative din 1968 acestora din urmă judeţe.


Székelyföld alatt az erdélyi történelmi székely székek területét értjük. Ide tartozott a mai Kovászna (kb. Háromszék) és Hargita megye (kb. Csíkszék és Udvarhelyszék) szinte egészen, Maros megye egy része (kb. Marosszék), Fehér és Kolozs kisebb darabjai (Aranyosszék), valamint néhány település Neamţ és Bákó megyékben a Kárpátok gerincén túl. Erdély történelmi-etnográfiai régiói közül jelenleg csak itt vannak a magyarok többségben (arányuk 80% körüli).


Székely Land refers to the territories inhabited by the Székely, a Hungarian people living in eastern Transylvania, centre of present-day Romania. They live in the valleys and hills of the Eastern Carpathian Mountains, corresponding to the present-day Harghita, Covasna, and parts of Mureş Counties in Romania. Originally, the name Székely Land, or Szekler Land denoted an autonomous region within Transylvania. It existed as a legal entity from medieval times until 1876, when its role was replaced by the county system.


Als Szeklerland (oder „Szeklergebiet“) wird das Gebiet im Osten Siebenbürgens (im zentralen Teil Rumäniens) bezeichnet, in dem die Szekler, eine ungarischsprachige Volksgruppe, siedeln. Das Gebiet deckt sich ungefähr mit den heutigen rumänischen Kreisen Harghita und Covasna sowie einem Teil des Kreises Mureş.

It was a very good idea to have this thread! :cheers:The pictures are really nice, but maybe it would've been better to write what they represent, at least a part of them.

Very beautiful. Probably the most beautiful in the under 50.000 people segment out of all towns in Romania (save Sighisoara, of course).
