Description

Day 1 Transfer from Otopeni Airport – hotel in Bucharest

  • Pick-up from Otopeni Airport
  • Bucharest city tour, with visits at Parliament Palace and Village Museum (depending on the arrival hour)

 

The Palace of the Parliament, perhaps better known as the People´s Palace is the second largest building in the world and the symbol of the Ceausescu era. Completed in 1989 and constructed of the best materials and craftsmanship that Romania could provide. In fact, the export of marble, crystal and wood (all of it hand carved and cut) was forbidden since everything that could be produced was needed for the monument. You’ll see plenty of grand staircases, marble plated halls and conference rooms as well as enjoying a fine view of central Bucharest from the balcony.

 

The VillageMuseum (Muzeul Satului in Romanian) is an open-air ethnographic museum located in the Herăstrău Park (Bucharest, Romania), showcasing traditional Romanian village life. The museum extends to over 100,000 m2, and contains 272 authentic peasant farms and houses from all over Romania.

It was created in 1936 by Dimitrie Gusti, Victor Ion Popa, and Henri H. Stahl

Day 7 Campulung Moldovenesc - Gura Humorului

  • Breakfast at the hotel
  • Monastery visits

 

Sucevita Monastery, the last one to be built, is the largest and finest of the painted monasteries of Bucovina. "A Poem in Green and Light", it has its thousands of painted images on a background of emerald green. The fortress legacy of these mountain monasteries is nowhere clearer than inside and outside the massive walls at Sucevita. Set in a beautiful green valley- it is fortified like a citadel with watchtowers at its four corners. It is a square-shaped compound, surrounded by a wall of 100 meters on each side, six-meter high and three-meter thick.

 

Moldovita Monasterywas founded in 1532 by the Ruler Petru Rares, Stefan the Great’s illegitimate son. At first there was a fortified stone church erected by Alexander the Kind-Hearted (1400-1432), between 1402 and 1410, but it collapsed at the beginning of the 16th century because of the very heavy rains and ground sliding; its ruins can still be seen today. The Moldovita Monastery, the one we can see today, was rebuilt on safer ground, on the valley of the Moldovita River. The monastery consists of a fortified quadrangular enclosure with towers, thick walls (6 m high, 1.2 m wide) and brawny gates, with a magnificent painted church at its center.

 

Voronetis considered by many to be the "Sixtine Chapel of the East", due to its magnificent frescoes placed on the West wall. These feature an intense shade of blue known in Romania as "Voronet Blue", a color obtained from lapis lazuli, which has been added to the lexicon of art alongside colors such as the "Titian Red" and "Veronese Green", being unique.

 

Putna monasteryis a Romanian Orthodox monastery, one of the most important cultural, religious and artistic centers established in medieval Moldavia; as with many others, it was built and dedicated by Prince Stephen the Great. Putna was founded on the lands perambulated by the Putna (which has its source in the Obcina Mare mountains, Bukovina). Stephen the Great is famous for building and influencing the building of dozens of churches and monasteries all over Moldavia (allegedly, he founded a religious edifice after each important military victory). The Putna Monastery houses the tombs of Stephen —nowadays, a place of pilgrimage —, and several of his family members. The icon veils and tombstones are held as fine examples of Moldavian art in Stephen the Great’s time.

Around it, in the river valley, the village has grown that bears the name of the monastery, Manastirea Humorului

  • Visit to the Red Lake and Bicaz Gorges

 

The road that slices through the Bicaz Gorges (Cheile Bicazului), 20km west of Bicaz, is among Romania's most spectacular.

The gorge twists and turns steeply uphill for 5km, cutting through sheer, 300m-high limestone rocks. At one point, the narrow mountain road runs uncomfortably beneath the overhanging rocks in a section known as the "neck of hell" (Gâtul Iadului).

One of the deepest gorges from Carpathians - Bicaz Gorges is a real rock climbing paradise. With huge walls over 300m high, including spectacular ceilings, deep crackers, great clear faces is an area recommended for real climbers. Hasmasul Mic wall is a smaller and easier area, best for climbing exercise and warm up. If you are not interested in climbing, Hasmas Mountains offer a great variety of very picturesque marked and unmarked routes

 

The Red Lake(Lacu Rosu) is a natural storage dam lake and it’s the largest natural mountain lake in Romania, its name coming from the reddish alluvia (iron oxides and iron hydroxides) deposited in the lake by the Red Creek
