Apuseni – beautiful Mountains from Romania

Hello dear,

I’m back 🙂 and yes i was travelling in Apuseni Mountains, one of the most beautiful destination from Romania.

First of all i must mention that i was staying at a agrotouristic pension named “Pensiunea agroturistica Danciu”, situated in Garda de Sus. This pension is still keeping Romanian values and traditions and i must tanks to the people who take care of this pension, especially to Alina, who was very kind during our staying, sharing with us her experiences and her knowledge regarding the touristic attractions from Apuseni area.
