Cluj-Napoca is the fourth largest city in Romania and is one of the most important academic, cultural and industrial centers in Romania. The city is located in the center of Transylvania and is old since 106, when the Roman Empire conquered Dacia and formed the settlement of Napoca.
Departure from Cluj-Napoca to Sâncrai, where we will visit the Reformed Church with a cassette ceiling dating from the sec. XIII, an area-specific lure, a traditional house, we will admire the traditional costumes and of course we will taste the plum jam. Optionally you will be able to admire the area in a horse-drawn carriage ride and enjoy a traditional lunch.
Sancrai – The history of Sâncraiu village begins long ago, in 1288 when it was first documented. Today’s savage is known for the beauty of the places, filled with traditions and customs, for the hostels that have preserved the charm of the old houses, but also for the many craftsmen (carpenters, blacksmiths, carpenters, masonry, fiddlers) in the area. There are still thirteen carpentry workshops in the village today.
Beliş – The tourist potential of the commune is great considering the beauty of the natural setting and the vicinity of the tourist resort Fântânele-Beliş. Belis-Fantanele Lake is an artificial lake in the Gilău Mountains, along the Somesul Cald river, set at an altitude of 990 meters, on a length of 13 km. The lake was arranged on the site of the former Belis village, during periods of drought, when the water level decreases very much, one can see the ruins of the houses, the most famous being the ruins of the former church in Giurcuţa de Jos.
A boat ride on the lake will be an unforgettable experience where you can admire the beauty and savage of the place.
We head to Răchiţele, where we will take a short stop to admire and photograph this famous waterfall from the Apuseni Mountains.
Waterfall Miresei waterfall is one of the most beautiful natural attractions of Cluj county and the whole country. The Veil of the Bride is a two-step cascade of great grandeur and wildlife, being the most representative cascade in the area. It is at an altitude of 1000 meters and the two steps totalize a level difference of approx. 30 m. At the base of the top step there is a deep marmite (hollow) with a diameter of 10 m, which ensures dispersion of water, thus resembling a veil.
On the way back we will make a short stop at the Bologa fortress. The Bologa fortress, dating from the beginning of the 14th century, is one of the most important fortifications of medieval Transylvania. The citadel is particularly remarkable by its circular donut, one of the very few preserved in Transylvania. The city was, over time, the scene of a large number of important historical events. In 1399, King Sigismund of Luxembourg granted the fortress the Prince of Wallachia Mircea the Elder, for the role he played in the anti-Ottoman wars.
