County description

“Vrancea, the country of natural wonders, the country of old stories, the country of the ancestral song and of the poem that has no comparison in any Romanian land, is the most beautiful part of the Carpathian depression”. (V.P. Arbore)

The land with rich forests Varancha, as it has been attested for the first time in 1431 Vrancea, is the destination that we are inviting you to visit.

Because of its geographical position, at the curvature of Oriental Carpathians, Vrancea has been, during the times, a real connection point between Moldova, Tara Romaneasca and Transylvania.

It is the symbol fo the Union from 1859, that lay the foundations of the Romanian state. Focsani is known as the first capital of the United Principalities. World War I represents another important stage, and the Mausoleums from Focşani, Mărăşti, Mărăşeşti and Soveja are proofs of this stage.

The people from this part preserve even nowadays the traditional crafts, and the traditional outfit illustrate the ethnographic continuity and unity of the Romanians.

This blessed land is a Romania in miniature. Here we find all the relief forms: wild mountains, rich plains, slow hills that are bearing the vineyards with noble grapes like a blazon famous in the entire country. In a natural landscape of a special picturesque we find Putna Waterfalls, Tisita Gorges, Rapa Rosie Trout farm, the Alive Fire from Andreiasu, unique in the country.
