Brasov - An administrative building. I don't know exactly what is it but is nice

Place where people have a moment for themselves, where people relax.

Pitesti - One final TULIP !


Pitesti - Lots of flowers


Pitesti - Pigeon
I thought a little about publishing this photo.. To publish or not to publish. I thought this picture has nothing to do with Romania and Pitest. But at a second thought I realised that Pitesti is more than this images. Pitesti is also atmosphere. In the central square there are a lot of pigeons and a lot of flowers who make this atmosphere. For the moment I don't have pictures with the central square (maybe next month)


Pitesti - Mihai Eminescu's Statue 1850-1889
He is consider a genius and also the best poet Romania ever had. He is very well known in Romania and other European counties although the translation of his work isn't as good as the original. Here is a link with the translation of some of his literary production:

Pitesti - City Hall


Pitesti - Muntenia Hotel


Pitesti - Just Life - People On Street !
This is not a beautiful picture. This is just the atmosphere from a casual Sundy-May 2005 (if I remember it well)


Pitesti - The Regional Library
This is the new building of our library. It is very apreciated beacause it is computerized (and you can search easier) and has a lot of rooms where you can read everything you want in good conditions.


Pitesti - Spring !


Pitesti - Lots of flowers, a lot of joy


Pitesti - Gushers


Pitesti - "1907 Park"

The first city i will present to you is PITESTI. Pitesti is situated 100Km east from Bucharest(the main city in Romania).

Vama Veche - General view of the beach of "Vama Veche" village


Costinesti - View from the train

Today: other photos from the Black Sea. This was an weekwnd journey in VamaVeche. Vama Veche is not a resort, is more like a village where everybody is free to do (almost) evrything. This is the place where young people come to fell the "freedom". Here you won't see any hotels, any luxury stuff. There are more than ten resorts on the romanian Black Sea Coast but i will show you images from them with other ocasion.

Apuseni Mountains - Another point of interest in Apuseni Mountains is the Chicken Mountain. Every august young girls and young boys come here to get know each other in order to get married. This is an old regional custom

The name of the second cave is "Pestera Ursilor" or "Bears' Cave" because many bear skeletons were found here. We don't have pictures from this one because we weren't allowed to take pictures(maybe with another occasion). Believe me it's worth visiting this one also.


Apuseni Mountains - Tourist office in the middle of the mountains :D


Apuseni Mountains - Image from the journey to the cave


Apuseni Mountains - Small part of the glacier !


Apuseni Mountains - There are many caves in Apuseni Mountains. We have visited only two of them, the most beautiful ones. The first one is the "Scarisoara" Cave. It is situated in the center of the mountains and it is well known by its glacier. You may arrive here by foot (a very pleasened journey - almost 1h) or by car but you will need a 4X4 car because the road is not paved.
