Considering Romania is our neighboring country, it took quite a while until we first visited it. Exactly 29 years. But this year, we visited it twice, and hopefully, we won’t wait too long before our next visit. Because there are so many wonderful things we’ve seen there – and even more that we haven’t.
As it usually happens, to us the most appealing thing about Romania was its natural beauties. Though we got an insane amount of rainy days during our stay, we used every clear/sunny hour to get out and do some hiking. And we’ve been rewarded…
… with the varied beauties of the Carpathian Mountains.
With lush greenery and secret waterfalls.
Mossy cliffs and secret waterfalls.
The magnificence of Bâlea Lake located at 2034 metres.
A unique turquoise, milky karst lake: barely known Ochiul Beiului.
The large cliffs of Nera Gorge, one of the wildest ones in Romania.
The cocoa cascades of Bicaz Gorge. (Of course, it’s mud. Sad.)
The mornings reflections and the dead trees in Red Lake (Lacul Roșu).
The sun struggling with the storm over breathtaking mountain peaks.
The landscapes of Romania are wild. They are dominated by mountains. They are full of hidden waterfalls. And dramatic castles. They are the landscapes of legends. Are they tempting you, too?
