Relaxing Weekend Getaway in Transylvania

My weekend was quiet and relaxing in an idyllic place. We have celebrated my fiance’s birthday in Ciucea, a picturesque place in the Apuseni Mountains.
Ciucea is a beautiful village located 22 km west of Huedin.

Ciucea is situated on the right bank of the Crişul Repede River. This idyllic village is famous for the Octavian Goga Memorial House.
Octavian Goga was a great Transylvanian poet and politician, who bought the domain in 1920 and began the restoration in 1921. Between 1915 and 1917 the domain belonged to Endre Ady, a famous Hungarian poet.
The Measurement of Milk festivals are held in the villages around Ciucea, where shepherds bring their sheep and goats for a competition, to see who is the biggest producer of milk.

Ciucea is an interesting touristic destination with an abundant flora and fauna, and the fresh air makes the atmosphere relaxing and calm.
Landscapes are astonishing, so you will never want to leave this amazing village.

Ciucea is a must for a weekend away!

  1. Wow! I’ve always wanted to go to Transylvania. One of my neighbours is Romanian and she’s always saying how beautiful it is there.

    • Wow, ce surpriza placuta! Nici nu stiam ca esti romanca :-).
      Imi place sa scriu putin si despre Romania, sper ca si altii sa vada cat de frumoasa este. Te pup! 🙂

  2. Thanks for visiting my blog. I’m in love with your garden. Wish I could also visit Transylvania, both my paternal Hungarian grandparents were born there. My grandfather’s family was from Bihor County and my grandmother’s from Szablocs. Love telling people I’m half Transylvanian, most have no idea it was an actual country.

  3. My father was born in Romania (near Transylvania), and we never had a chance to visit his country. It would be lovely to do so one day! Thank you for sharing these wonderful photos.
