Tour Details
PRELUDE
ROMANIA

Maramures

Romania, a country rich in culture, landscapes and almost untouched nature. It is located in Eastern Europe, a simply breathtaking piece of land unknown to many in this world. It hosts all forms of relief and it is a great land in which fairy tales almost seem real. 

UNUSUAL EXPEDITION’s trips are well known for accomplishing a lot in just a few days. We basically pack a lot of content with different themes in a single trip. This workshop will be no different. Locations shoots each day are dependant on daily weather and lighting conditions.

What to Expect

Located in the geographical heartland of Europe, Mamamures is a land of wooden churches, mythological richness, splendid landscapes and ancient customs. It is widely regarded as Romania’s most traditional region, and entering it feels as though you’ve stepped through a time machine and headed back a couple of centuries. Think a beautiful tapestry of pastureland, colourfully garbed locals and steepled wooden churches that look straight out of a Brothers Grimm fairy tale.

  • Traditional cultures
  • Raw landscape
  • Medieval architecture
Itinerary

DAY 1 – BUCHAREST
Upon your early morning arrival at the Bucharest Airport, you will be met and we will head into the city of Bucharest. We will check-in to the hotel and spend the night here. We will explore a little of the town to get ready for the adventure ahead.

Meals: (D)

DAY 2 to 5 – BUCHAREST TO MARAMURES
We depart Bucharest to Maramures, the star of this trip. Despite the inroads of the 21st century, Maramures has managed to carefully preserve the culture, traditions and lifestyle of a medieval peasant past, making for an eye-opening trip that few have experienced. This wonderfully hidden secret of Romania combines ancient traditions with rural country landscapes that make every corner a photo opportunity. We will spend the next 6 days here, and you can expect:

Viseu – this little town is filled with beautiful churches, friendly locals, charming guest houses and most importantly, a dreamlike landscape of forests and mountains. Great for landscape photography!

Mocanita – the Mocanita is a vintage steam train that features a stove in the middle of the wagon, and still runs till this day. You will be able to capture endless forests, fast rivers, waterfalls, wildflowers and everything raw nature has to offer.

The Merry Cemetery – located in Sapanta, this famous cemetery is known the world over thanks to its colourful tombs and headstones, each inscribed with a humorous poem or text that depict the life of the dead they represent. It is meant to express that belief that death is not to be perceived as a sad event.

Rodnei Mountains National Park – one of the most visited tourist attraction in Maramures, this national park is the largest protected area in northern Romania and includes breathtaking sights such as the Old Ponorul, caves, springs, and caves. It is especially spectacular during sunrise and sunset.

Monasteries and wooden churches – Maramures boasts an impressive collection of historic churches and monasteries that have resisted the ravages of time. Many are included in the UNESCO World Heritage site list, and are a joy to photograph as they seem to be from a different time.

Horses Fall – this is the highest waterfall in the country and the most spectacular. Although it is the main draw for most tourists, the surrounding areas are not to be missed either! Think pristine greenery that stretches for miles. Acording to an ancient legend, the name of the waterfall comes from a fact that occurred here centuries ago. It seems that during a storm, a herd of horses was cornered by a bear on the brink of the abyss where the waterfall starts. Because of poor visibility and being extremely frightened, the horses jumped in to their deaths into the abyss.

Exact photography locations will depend on weather conditions.
Meals: (B,L,D)

DAY 6 – MARAMURES TO BRASOV
We depart from Maramures early in the morning and will take a domestic flight to Bucharest. From there, we will make our way to Brasov.

Meals: (B,L,D)

DAY 7 to 9 – BRASOV

Think Gothic spires, medieval gateways and watchtowers and beautiful baroque buildings and churches – Brasov is smack in the centre of Romania and is home to a harmonious mash up of traditional charm and modern city life. We will spend 2 days exploring this town and its surroundings.

You can expect to visit the fortified church of Prejmer, the Libearty brown bear sanctuary and of course, Bran’s Castle aka Dracula’s Castle.

Meals: (B,L,D)

DAY 10 – BRASOV TO BUCHAREST
We will check out hotel in early morning and transfer to Bucharest airport for our flight back to Singapore. This is the end of our expedition.
