A surprising small village, very colorful and clean. The place can be visited in less than one hour. The big surprise is the restaurant. Being part of Albota trout farm, a famous restaurant in the area, you can feel the taste of romanian restaurant.

We arrived there rather by accident, but it did worth! Firstly, congratulations to the citizens and mayor of Cârța, houses are almost all renovated, culverts heads painted in wait and on each of them there are flowers. Simply driving through Cârța is a pleasure. The...More

A beautiful old monastery, partly restored, and still in use as a place of worship. You get the key and pay in the adjoining cafe/tourist office. This not only gets you into the church and surrounds, but also into and up the tower. Great view...More
