Places in Romania - Art

Photographs and drawings by Daliana Pacuraru Romania is a combination of natural landscapes and rich history. The Carpathians Mountains form an arc across the centre of the country, bordered on both sides by hills and plateaus . Over a quarter of the country is covered by forest and the flora and fauna is amongst the richest in Europe. Expect all kind of encounters from the mystical ruins of the ancient Dacian civilizations to healing thermal springs and fleeting glimpses of Brown Bears or the distant howl of a wolf. The mighty Danube forms the southern boundary of the country dividing into a vast delta that spills into the Black Sea, forming the largest wetland in Europe and a haven for countless local and migratory birds. Heading out into the countryside you’ll find ancient villages that fiercely guard their local heritage and folklore with costumes, architecture, cuisine, music and festivals. Here time-honored ways of life and skiills still thrive with each community having their resident shepherds, weavers, blacksmiths and carpenters. The monumental Maramures Gates are a must see and reflect the excellence of such craftsmanship. Fortified churches (Harman), castles (Corvinesti, Peles), cathedrals and Roman spas form breath-taking aspects of the Carpathian landscape. (http://www.romania.travel/)
