TRANSYLVANIA


SCROLL DOWN

TRANSYLVANIA


Transylvania

The heart of Europe’s last great wilderness, this is a rolling land of ancient forests of oak, beech and hornbeam, wide meadows and mountain pastures filled with wild flowers, villages where cows are the most numerous pedestrians and transport is a horse and cart. Wolves, wild boar and deer roam freely in the woods, eagles and buzzards patrol the skies, while storks maintain a languid village lookout from giant nests stacked on chimneys.

Surrounded by an aura of mystery and legend and perched high atop a 200-foot-high rock, Bran Castle owes its fame to its imposing towers and turrets as well as to the myth created around Bram Stocker's Dracula. Built on the site of a Teutonic Knights stronghold dating from 1212, the castle was first documented in an act issued by Louis I of Hungary on November 19, 1377, giving the Saxons of Kronstadt (Brasov) the privilege to build the Citadel.

From 1920 - 1957, the people of Brasov gifted Bran Castle to Queen Marie of Romania. The Queen spent much of her life collecting antiques and heirlooms, some of which are on display inside the castle's museum, giving a glimpse into the lavish lifestyle of royalty. Narrow lining stairways will lead through some 60 timbered rooms, many connected by secret, unground passages. These rooms house a collection of furniture, weapons and armour dating from 14th - 19th century. 

The castle overlooks the picturesque village of Bran and also offers an open air museum filled with old, local style village houses complete with furniture, household objects and costumes.

Brasov is one of the most visited place in Romania. Fringed by the peaks of the Southern Carpathian Mountains and resplendent with gothic, baroque and renaissance architecture, as well as a wealth of historical attractions.

Founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211 on an ancient Dacian site and settled by the Saxons as one of the seven walled citadels, Brasov exudes a distinct medieval ambiance and has been used as backdrop in many recent period films. The location of the city at the intersection of trade routes linking the Ottoman Empire and western Europe, together with certain tax exemptions, allowed Saxon merchants to obtain considerable wealth and exert a strong political influence in the region. Fortifications were erected around the city and continually expanded, with several towers maintained by different craft guilds, according to medieval custom.

Stroll around the old Town Hall Square (Piata Sfatului) where you can admire colourfully painted and ornately trimmed baroque structures. Take a peek inside the Black Church (Biserica Neagra) the largest gothic church in Romania. It's name derives from damage caused by the Great Fire of 1689, when the flames and smoke blackened it walls. The interior is impressive and well kept and houses one of the largest organs in Eastern Europe.

The Bucegi Mountains are part of the Carpathian Mountain Range that spans six European countries; however, the bulk of the Carpathians are located in Romania. This is where the Bucegi Mountains are located. According to legend, Zamolxis, the god of the ancient Romanian people (the Dacians), made his home and sanctuary in the mountains. It was often said the god would vanish deep into the caverns to consult his oracles.

Busteni is a small mountain resort in the north of Prahova County, in central Romania. It is located at the bottom of the Bucegi Mountains that have a maximum altitude of 2505 meters. Busteni average altitude is 900 meters and it is one of the most popular resorts, offering spectacular views, with lots of year- round tourism opportunities ranging from skiing to mountain climbing

Another attraction is Bucegi Plateau, where rain and wind have turned the rocks into spectacular figures such as the Sphinx and Babele.

Babele, the Old Women, is one the most popular tourist destinations in the country. The name comes from the mushroom shaped rock formations, the result of erosion over hundreds of years. The Bucegi Sphinx is another rock formation in the same area, named for its sphinx- like appearance.

(Local tip! Ask our guides to show you the hidden cave 1km away. Don't forget a warm jacket

Rasnov Fortress is located on a rocky hilltop in the Carpathian Mountains, 650 ft, above the town of Rasnov. First mentioned in a official document in 1331, the fortress was built by Teutonic knights as protection against invading Tartars and was later enlarged by the local Saxon population. Strategically located on the commercial route linking the provinces of Transylvania and Wallachia, the fortress differs from other Saxon fortress in that it was designed as a place for refugees over extended periods of time. As such it had at least 30 houses, a school a chapel and other buildings more commonly associated with a village.

The defensive system included nine towers, two bastions and a drawbridge. The fortress was obliged to surrender only once, in the year 1612 when invaders managed to find the secret route that supplied the people inside the fortress with water.

Recently the fortress has been restored to its former glory and today, you can visit impressive remains. There is also a museum here, hidden behind the ancient walls, where you can be a witness of a time long gone, through the magnificent artefacts and architecture on view. The inner rooms are maze-like with several wooden ladders linking them and a few so- called secret passages which should keep you busy for quite a while.

Half Day Tour: 

A visit to Libearty Bears where you will see rescued bears, The tour lasts approximately 2 hours where you can watch a short movie about how the project began, the staff will accompany you and provide useful information on each individual bears. A lovely way of seeing these wonderful creatures in a secure environment. 

(Local tip! We can also organise volunteer positions on a weekly basis!)

In 1998 a Romanian woman, Cristina Lapis, saw 3 bears in a small cage outside a restaurant in central Romania where they were used to attract customers. She later found more bears used in a similar way in other areas of the country. Her dream was to rescue these distressed animals and to change public attitudes to stop this cruel and illegal exploitation of one of Romania’s magnificent native animals.

Now that dream is being realised, with over 80 bears enjoying a new life in the Libearty Bear Sanctuary – 70 hectares of oak and hazel forest in the Carpathian Mountains above the Transylvanian town of Zarnesti.

Here, the bears climb trees, swim in the pools and forage on the vegetation. For many of them, having been caught from the wild as cubs, this is a new and stimulating experience.

The Romanian bear sanctuary has helped to create better awareness of the issues affecting bears in Romania. The Romanian public, media and also the authorities have now taken this project to their hearts. The sanctuary has given new life to once-captive bears and is a symbol of optimism for the protection of Romania’s rich natural environment.
