The Bicaz Gorge, located in northeast Romania, is a stunning geological site dotted with massive rocks and a river flowing along. Its vast landscape accommodates souvenir bazaars and parking lots. Despite lacking pedestrian paths and posing a traffic risk, the gorge offers breathtaking views. The gorge road leads to a tourist attraction, the Red Lake, which despite its name appears green and features boating, dining, and hiking opportunities.
The Neamț Citadel, a medieval fortress in northeast Romania, served as a key defense against the Kingdom of Hungary’s expansion. First documented in 1395, the citadel was one of Moldova’s most fortified strongholds. It was refurbished between 2007-2009 and now operates as a museum, featuring 21 rooms such as a chapel, prison, armory, and a council hall. The citadel is uniquely accessed via a wooden bridge built on stone pillars.
