Maria Radna Basilica - the cultural gem on the Mureș Valley


The last day of 2015 was a beauty. Actually we couldn't miss a small trip nearby :D We were longing for some sunshine after a week of fog and grey sky. 2015 was about to say a sunny and cold goodbye and welcome his big brother, 2016.

Bike Tours - Sohodol Gorges & Tismana Monastery


Since Monday, 1st of June 2015, was a free day in Romania we decided to take advantage of the long weekend and head towards the mountains with our bikes :) We decided to make a circuit in the area between the Small Retezat and Piatra Cloșani mountains. We had 3 days at our disposal to travel over 200 km in the mountains :) This post is our report from the first day of our adventure.

Neamț Monastery and Mihail Sadoveanu's house


Just 15 km away from the town of Târgu Neamț, the beautiful Neamț Monastery amazes you through its simplicity and architectural style. The keywords here are: rock and wood. It's a place full of spirituality where you can sit in peace in the middle of nature.

Voroneț Monastery - The Sistine Chapel of the East


After we visited the surprising Iași and did a trekking session in the beautiful Ceahlău Mountains we were on our way to the Maramureș region in Northern Romania. Our route ran through Gura Humorului which is very close to one of the most famous monasteries in Romania: Voroneț.
