Have you ever visited the 1000 years-old border of the Hungarian Kingdom? Tasted the real potato soup or curdled milk meals or the authentic “málé” (puliszka), the cornflour pudding of Gyimes? Have you ever wondered the amazing green hills, and enjoyed the clean air of the Transylvanian mountains?

Join us, and have a look at the mountains in this fascinating land located in the Eastern part of the Carpathian Basin.

This is how the magical land of Gyimes shines and greens at the end of the summertime…

A bit of history:

During the 18th century hundreds of families from the Székely region of Csík moved to the high mountain forests and pastures of the upper Tatros valley. That times the area was the most Eastern border region of the Kingdom of Hungary.

The descedents of these people live today in the villages of Gyimesfelsőlok (Lunca de Sus), and Gyimesközéplok (Lunca de Jos), in the Rece valley, and in Gyimesbükk (Ghimes-Faget).  Folks of this hills still have their “Hungarian” identity.
