Congratulations Worker Bee! Nice write up PHeymont! The Black Church holds some significant memories for me personally as does the whole city. In the aerial shot, if you look closely, you will also find some drab communist era apartment buildings. The time of Ceausescu and the Securitate was a time no one who lived in the country will forget. It was also Romania's baby boom when a lot people of people were born due to no birth control. The Romanian people are talented and o pen and I...

Hey , i'm so happy that you made this blog about Brasov, my city , happy that someone figure it about and posted the right answer about the puzzle. Everything said here is true, and to add more info about this destination, remind that The Black Church is the most photographied attraction in Romania, and right behind it with Dracula Bran Castle.

Re: Where Gumbo Was (#9): Poiana Brasov, Romania

This area brings back fond memories I remember falling a lot too because I was unable to buy good boots in an era when Romania rationed just about everything. The hike from Brasov to Poiana is a nice one and there is a bus as well if you don't have a car. Besides skiing, there is also a good tourist restaurant in Poiana that serves hunters food. Not sure if the outdoor ice skating rink is still there?

If you want to visit Europe, you can also visit Romania and try the Transylvania Citadels itinerary which you can find on the site of Expert Travel agency http://experttravel.ro/hotel-2...i-transilvanene.html I'll recommend this one because is kinda cheap and you'll learn new things about Romania and the medieval times. The itinerary consists in 3 days of travel with bus transport, accommodation in 3* guesthouse or hotel and a tour-guide. Also this tour will be made in group of 20-40 people.

The best season to visit Romania is the Holiday Winter (for Christmas and New Year holiday). This is the best season in my opinion because we have a lot of traditions especially for Christmas, and you'll be very surprised by the guest's hospitality, especially in the rural places like Maramures, Bucovina, or Transilvania- Brasov, Sibiu county. In Brasov county for exemple is a tradition for Christmas where 2 groups of young men called "Feciorii" go and sing Christmas Carols all day for every...

Thank you for the video alphabet About the lakes with flower: i don't know any lakes with blooming flowers but if you are really a fan of "flower-watching" you can visit the Piatra Craiului National Park which is located in Brasov county. In this National Park you can see flowers like those in the pictures i attached, they are endemic or rare species for this area. Also we have a lot of Botanic Gardens like the one in Cluj county or Iasi county, i attached pictures for them too. Enjoy the ...

The Legend of Vlad the Impaler (Dracula)

Former Member ·
Everyone is wondering when the legend of Dracula came in the public attention for the first time and if this legend has something to do with Vlad the Impaler- the prince of Wallachia. Well the legend starts when this man Vlad the Impaler was chosen by the well-known writer Bram Stoker to be the leading hero for his book published in 1897. Since then, Dracula and Transylvania, the land where the mysterious castle full of ghosts and vampires is located, became the subject of many movies, over...
