Hiking Magura and Pestera Romania

What do two Romanian Villages have to offer you?

Hiking Magura and Pestera Romania

Away from the hustle and bustle of the city, somewhere in the heart of Transylvania, there are two villages for which time seems to stand still. They are called Magura and Pestera. Besides being in a special mountain area, many tourists have remarked that the atmosphere here is absolutely therapeutic.

Magura village, the place called “Heaven on Earth”

Among the picturesque hills of Piatra Craiului National Park, in Brasov county, Moeciu commune, lies a secluded mountain village, asleep in the silence of the entire region. The locals have remained simple, hardworking and authentic, always eager to help each other. The visitors are curious to learn their stories, and also those underlying the formation and development of this charming land.

Here you have the opportunity to spend a few moments among the cows, horses and sheep grazing the lush grass between the houses on the hilltops, among the fruit trees growing at the edge of the country road or simply wandering through the village streets, admiring the mist that clings to the crests of the Bucegi and the Pietrei Craiului Mountains.

It is a wonderful destination both in summer, when it is joyfully discovered by those who dare to cross the daring Piatra Craiului Mountain trail, probably the most spectacular and the most difficult mountain trail in Romania, and in winter, when the generous layers of scrub cover the pastures, leaving only the green trees shaken by the wind.
