In a valley crossed by a still unpaved road, covered by vast pastures and ramshackle houses, we discover a corner of heaven. It is the village of Măgura, in the commune of Moieciu, which attracts more and more tourists every year. Many of them come from thousands of miles away.

Mihai Cârmaciu, guesthouse manager: There are foreign tourists from all over the world. They also came from New Zealand, mostly English, Germans, Israel and all over the world. It’s incredible what the internet means.

Claudiu Loghin, Observer reporter: Behind us we now have the steep Bucegilor. We are somewhere at 1100 meters altitude, 6 km from Bran Castle and 3 kilometers from the town of Zărnești. Somewhere further to my left, there is a good chunk of the main ridge of the Piatra Craiului massif. This is the village of Magura.

Animal husbandry and tourism are the main occupations of people who live far from the urban bustle.

For a double room, tourists arriving in Măgura pay between 160 and 250 lei per night. From here, nature lovers can go hiking on spectacular mountain trails in Piatra Craiului. In addition, nearby, you can also stop at the St. Trinity Monastery in Măgura, which was recently built.
