In 1960 Şirnea was declared the first tourist village in Romania, and now there is a lot of exciting events happening as fire Sumedru (protector crops and shepherds), which takes place every year on 25 October.

Ciocăneşti village is another story. I find Bistrita Valley, on the road between Moldova Maramures, not far from Worcester. On a placard at the entrance read “village museum” because it’s one of the few who managed Romanian villages, despite the passage of time, to preserve architectural harmony in a world obsessed with glass, fireworks pompous, modern finishes and Stainless steel railings.
The name comes from the days when villagers Faure weapons and armor for hosts rulers of Moldavia.Legend has it that Stephen the Great had established place of the altar of free Putna Monastery in the air with an arrow made by the people of these lands. Here you can find and painted houses. Yes, you read right. Houses painted.
In Ciocăneşti can you visit Leonida Peasant House Museum, the first house in the village which was painted with traditional motifs. Painted houses tradition was born in 1950, going from a peasant family of a lady who, when they wanted to change the color of the house, and wanted to building walls “to look and Moon and the Sun” according to a report from the National Journal. The result was not only pleasing to the sun and the moon, but of dozens of tourists each year Ciocăneşti reach.
Viscri is a village of 1,000 people who became known worldwide after Prince Charles has bought a house there. Judging by the photos, it’s not hard to imagine why love Prince Charles of land Brasov.

Rimetea is one of the most beautiful villages in Transylvania. Villagers say that here the sun rises twice.And in a way, really. The city is bordered by steep slopes, which creates the impression that the sun rises in the sky twice.
