Hello from Bistrita, Romania

Posted by: IULIA ISTRATE

Located at the foot of the Bargau Mountains, not far from the Borgo Pass (Pasul Tihuta in Romanian) which connects Transylvania region to the Bucovina one, the town of Bistrita is one of the oldest around. Archeological findings indicate that the area has been inhabited since the Neolithic age, long before Bram Stocker chose it as the setting of his fictional Dracula’s castle.

The material and spiritual folk creation, achieved with a great skill, certifies the people's riches of life and their spiritual beauty. Even today, they know how to preserve the traditions, building, at the same time, the features of our contemporary folk culture.
