Nera Gorges - Beușnița National Park

NERA GORGES - BEUȘNIȚA NATIONAL PARK




In three days I will be myself in these places and if I manage to return safe, you should expect my photos here. Not yet decided if I will go to Anina Mountains (from where these images are) or perhaps Țarcu Mountains, though.

Timișoara by me

TIMIȘOARA BY ME




Ion Mihalache Street, Fabric District - an atmospheric corner of this large working class neighborhood developed from first half of 18th century and reaching the peak around fin de siècle, when managed to become home to almost half of city's entire population (around 60,000), as a consequence of massive industrialisation

Incredible Europe: wilderness of Piatra Craiului National Park

INCREDIBLE EUROPE: THE WILDERNESS OF PIATRA CRAIULUI NATIONAL PARK




If you are going to tell to the average, uninformed citizen of the planet that Europe has natural areas as wild but more spectacular and more pleasantful than Yellowstone or other famous intact natural areas of the world, he/she will laugh, but is true. Piatra Craiului is just one of the many such areas in Romania. Here in Carpathians, a fabulous treasure of precious ecosystems, lush jungle, mirific landscapes await to be discovered by the rest of world, together with an equally incredible treasure of traditinional, archaic rural cultures belonging to a mosaic of ethnicites and religions.

Bărăgan Steppe

BĂRĂGAN STEPPE




The Bărăgan is a steppe plain (~ 15,000 km²) that makes up much of the eastern part of the Wallachian Plain. Due to lack of forest in the past, the Baragan was an important route for the migratory peoples who roamed the area that is south-eastern Romania today.
The Bărăgan Plain has a harsh climate with hot and dry summers and includes the location where the highest-ever temperature in Romania was recorded (44.5 °C). Winters are cold, and subject to the effects of a blizzard wind, known as "crivăţ". Due to its climate, is the most inhospitable area in Romania.

Bucegi Mountains

BUCEGI MOUNTAINS




The most visited mountains in Romania are also the location of the highest bear density in Europe: 124 bears live on 300 km². Strict measures are taken to reduce the humanisation of these bears and they live mostly in natural, wild condition, finding their food in forest.
