Holidays in Măgura in Romania in the Transylvanian mountains
Holiday in the Carpathian mountains
I love Transylvania and Dracula.
The mountain village of Măgura is located at an altitude of 1000 m above sealevel, right in the middle of
Piatra Craiului national park. Until 50 years ago the village could only be reached by foot or with horse
and cart. That's why local traditions are still kept and are still lived by the farmers. Livestock breeding
is the basis of the local income, in summer the animals graze in the alpine meadows cared for by shepherds
and dogs as protection against wolves and bears. The hay meadows in the village are still scythed and
there are more horse-drawn carts than cars on the road.
Vegetables and salads for the kitchen are grown in the gardens. Meat, milk and eggs are provided from the
farmers of the village.
The scarcity of cars, the clean air, and the freedom of nature make the place a paradise for families with
After a walk of 6 km, the famous
Dracula-Castle in Bran
can be reached. The distance to Brasov is about 25 km.
To the nearest town Zarnesti, with bank, post office and shops, it is a distance of 3 km
(less than 45 minutes by foot; by car or bike you are faster).
