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, marbleplated 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.

The front sides of Agapia Monastery are covered outside with paintings of neoclassical inspiration. Inside, the church (including the catapetasma) was painted in 1860 by Nicolae Grigorescu, the foremost artist of the day. His paintings have a vividness of an invaluable artistic value.

 

Varatec Monasteryis a rather recent monastic settlement. Its architecture preserves certain features taken up from the old church architecture and that of the 18th century in Moldavia. Like the big church Agapia has its neo-Classical elements, but these are synthesised with a traditional Moldavian style which includes a line of neo-Byzantine blind arcading under the eaves.

Day 6              Gura Humorului (Sucevita, Moldovita, Voronet, Marginea)

  • Breakfast at the hotel
  • Monasteries visit: Sucevita, Moldovita, Voronet

 

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.

 

  • Lunch on route
  • Departure to Marginea, a Dacian heritage

 

For the history and beauty-lover, tracing back this craft in time and space may be extremely pleasurable. Black Ceramics is a proof of the Dacian origin. It is only to be found in Marginea pottery work-shops, in Suceava County.

After it is moulded, the vessel follows the same thousand year-old track, burned in pits of 1.5 m shaped like an upside down cone. Nearby another smaller pit was dug which had a tunnel to the first pit where the fire was lit. The fire made the vessels turn red. They were covered by a thick and hummed bed of clay, covering the tunnel between the two pits. Even if without oxygen the process continued and the vessels turned grey or black.

Day 9              Brasov – Bran - Sinaia – Bucharest

  • Arrival in Bucharest

 

Bran Castle, situated near Bran and in the immediate vicinity of BraÅŸov, is a national monument and landmark in Romania. The fortress is situated on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia, on DN73. Commonly known as "Dracula's Castle" (although it is one among several locations linked to the Dracula legend, including Poenari Castle and Hunyad Castle), it is marketed as the home of the titular character in Bram Stoker's Dracula.

 

The castle is now a museum open to tourists, displaying art and furniture collected by Queen Marie. Tourists can see the interior individually or by a guided tour. At the bottom of the hill is a small open air museum park exhibiting traditional Romanian peasant structures (cottages, barns, etc.) from across the country.

 

PelesCastleis a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains, near Sinaia, in Prahova County, Romania, on an existing medieval route linking Transylvania and Wallachia, built between 1873 and 1914. Its inauguration was held in 1883.

King Carol I of Romania (1839–1914), under whose reign the country gained its independence, first visited the site of the future castle in 1866 and fell in love with the magnificent mountain scenery. In 1872 the Crown purchased 1,300 square kilometres (500 sq mi) of land near the Piatra Arsă River. The estate was named the Royal Estate of Sinaia. The monarchy commissioned the construction of a royal hunting preserve and summer retreat on the property, and the foundation was laid for PelesCastleon 22 August 1873.

 

The first three design plans submitted for Peleswere copies of other palaces in Western Europe, and King Carol I rejected them all as lacking originality and being too costly. German architect Johannes Schultz (1876–1883) won the project by presenting a more original plan, something that appealed to the King's taste: a grand palatial alpine villa combining different features of classic European styles, mostly following Italian elegance and German aesthetics along Renaissance lines. Later additions were made between 1893 and 1914 by the Czech architect Karel Liman, who designed the towers, including the main central tower, which is 66 metres (217 ft) in height. The Sipot Villa, which served as Liman's headquarters during the construction, was built later on. Liman would supervise the building of the nearby PeliÅŸor Chateau (1889–1903, the future residence of King Ferdinand I and Queen Marie of Romania), as well as of King Ferdinand's villa in the Royal Sheepfold Meadow.
