10+ places to chill from the Bear’s Land

I am feeling very lucky to live here, in the place that I call “the Bear’s Land”. It is full of chill places and I love to discover them. 

I am used to talk about Romania as “an undiscovered golden mine”, because you still can find everything you want here. From mountains to seaside, from lakes to waterfalls, from beautiful winding roads to imposing castles and churches, they all can be found while traveling here. 

In the last summer, I travelled a lot through this country and I still believe about this place that is amazing. Everytime when I found a breathtaking view, I felt like a little pawn on a chessboard. It happens often to me to discover a new beautiful place and to feel that I am so small in front of the nature’s artworks. These are the moments when I can not say anything, so I am just sitting down in the grass and look at what is in front of me. 

These are some of the most beautiful places I saw in the last summer and I couldn’t not share them with you. 


The sunrise I saw in Biertan has left me speechless. Undoubtedly, it is worth to wake up at 5 to catch this view.

Balea Lake
