Transylvanian weekend: Vulcan - Brasov County

From the moment we have left Bucharest we realized that we are going to take interesting and contrasting photos because of the undecided weather.
We've started positive our travel and also very relaxed about the idea to take a hike into Piatra Mare mountains because in any condition the weather would had changed we could re orientate to any kind of trip into Brasov County.

As the summits of the mountains mentioned above where into bad weather conditions we have left through the beautiful transylvanian villages nearby Brasov and Rasnov.
Vulcan village seemed to be our best option under the sky and we share below some of the greatest moments of this 2-day trip.

Vulcan (German: Wolkendorf) is a commune in Braşov County in the centre of Romania, 16 km west of the county capital Braşov. It is composed of two villages, Colonia 1 Mai and Vulcan. It also included Holbav village until 2004, when it was split off to form a separate commune. Since its founding around the year 1377 it was one of the most important villages in the Burzenland area, where there was a strong Transylvanian Saxon community. (Wiki)

Photo 3 is awesome in composition and color. What a great example of life in this area - beautiful!

The Bucegi shot reminds me of areas in Patagonia with a panorama of plains edged with the rugged mountains.

Bises,
Genie

:) Thanks Genie, Bucegi mountains are made by conglomerate rocks so are dominated by many large and beautiful valleys from Northern summits to Southern steep walls
