“Bucharest has a special tourist potential”

Bucharest has a special tourist potential, determined by the numerous monuments that exist, to which the advantages of being a European capital can be added. (…]Over time, the city has acquired an important dowry of historical monuments, places of culture, architectural monuments and religious objectives, which provide the capital with high tourist potential, representing the basis for the development and increase of the capital’s attractiveness in terms of the tourist landscape. (…)

Thus, in order to raise awareness of Bucharest’s tourist and cultural heritage, it is necessary to carry out complex projects aimed at promoting the capital as a tourist destination both nationally and internationally, according to Agripres.

The Apocene Mountains is a destination that Romanians are little known about, especially by those in the south and east of the country, although it offers many tourist attractions and vacation opportunities.

When it comes to choosing a vacation destination, Romanians often turn their attention to the seaside. It is also natural to consider the sea as the main destination in the warm season. However, there are also people who choose resorts in the Prahova Valley, in the Rucăr-Bran region or in destinations in the north of the country, where they prefer to go off-road and are often promoted on TV and on the Internet.

Today we will introduce you to the most beautiful holiday destinations in the Apuseni Mountains, places that in addition to providing unforgettable summer vacation experiences, will help and enrich your general culture due to the geographical diversity of the region.

Arij Valley and its goals

From its flow at Mureș, near Luduș, to the resort of Vârtop, the basin of the Arie River is filled with many sites, many of which are important historical landmarks. Țara Moţilor, located in this region, is a hotspot of resistance and struggle for the political, economic and social rights of Romanians in Transylvania. Baia de Arieș, Câmpeni and Abrud are the main urban centers of the region, and the Avram Iancu Museum and the Mining Museum of Roșia Montană are the main tourist attractions.

Thus, you can enter the Roman galleries of Alburnus Maior, built two thousand years ago, where you have the opportunity to learn how gold was mined in antiquity, and where, with a little luck, you can see gold nuggets embedded in the walls of the catacombs. The area also offers many tourist routes to the highest peaks of the Apuseni Mountains.

The natural environment is rich with magnificent waterfalls, and in the area you can visit the Evantai Waterfall, Pătrăhăițești Waterfall, Pișoaia Waterfall or Vârciorog Waterfall. Rusty Pit is also located near Vârtop. Regarding the cave heritage, the Apuseni mountains can be proud of many caves whose peculiarity can no longer be found in other parts of the country. Iconic symbols are the Scărișoara Glacier Cave, the Rădesei Castle Cave, the Bears Cave, and the Vârtop Glacier Cave.

Historical monuments in the valleys of Crisului Alb and Mureș

In the south of the Apuseni mountains, on the Crisului Alb valley, there are two of the most important tourist targets in the entire region. First of all, in Brad’s Gold Museum, which is unique in Europe, you have the opportunity to see many gold nuggets extracted from the area, some of them quite large.

Near Brad, in Sepia, you can visit the tomb of Avram Iancu, the Roman Basuptist revolutionary, and Goron Horia, a historical monument more than 4 centuries old, the place where Horia in 1784 called the Apocene movements to battle.

On the other hand, in the Mureș Valley, you can see the castle from Săvrâșin, a palace owned by Romania’s royal family, which recently opened its doors to visitors. A little further west, on a hill on the right bank of the Murio River, the ruined, but accessible Șoimoș fortress can make you understand how important defense against invaders was in the 13th and 15th centuries.
