Pictured Travel offers private small group guided travel photo tours to Romania exploring the unique landscapes and traditions of Transylvania and Moldova, a nature and travel photography blog with tips on travel, nature photography, and everything related to Romania, one of the less visited places in Europe.
Why Pictured Travel…
The mission of Pictured Travel is to increase awareness about the cultural diversity and natural environments that still exist in Eastern Europe, but are beginning to shrink due to the changes and challenges posed by globalization and the never ending race for new resources. The natural habitats and unique cultural traditions that survived for hundreds, and in some cases, thousands of years are more vulnerable today than ever, like in many other places on earth.
The nature and people of Romania, with its spectacular mountain vistas, the Black Sea and the Danube Delta, over 10,000 natural caves, waterfalls, friendly people, great food and a few thousand years old culture, are a good example.
Ancient Dacians/Getae are the forefathers of present day Romanians, but this Latin speaking country also received influences from the ancient Greek and Roman civilizations, and later on from the Byzantine, German, Hungarian, Turkish, and French cultures. Many old cultural traditions and foods have survived to this day in rural areas, but are virtually almost unknown to the outside world. The nature of Romania, as most of Eastern Europe, fell too many times victim to long wars and/or regional conflicts, or to unsustainable exploitation of its natural resources.
What we offer…
