Vama Buzaului between Transylvania and Tara Romaneasca



Vama Buzaului is a commune in the county of Brasov, Romania, located on the County Road 103A, in the valley between the mountains Intorsura Buzaului and Ciucas - Zagan. The location is gorgeous, blessed by God, the air is mountain fresh, in an area where there is no pollution. These reasons are strong points for the tourists who are interested in coming here anytime they wish to go somewhere where there is silence, to go hiking, enjoy local cuisine or spend Christmas and New Year holidays in boarding houses or locals' homes.

Hospitality with traditions

"It is known that the people from Vama Buzaului have been hospitable ever since the old times. The explanation comes from the fact that Vama Buzaului used to be the customs between Transylvania and Tara Romaneasca, and the inhabitants used to offer places where people could spend the night, have dinner or provide other services for a fee. At the beginning this accommodation had the purpose of rest for long journeys. The accommodation destinations used to be inns or households with several rooms. In time, the accommodation in peasants' households became more and more important and now people go there to spend free time. A great deal of the people in town spends their holidays at us, in the rural area, in agro-tourism boarding houses." declared Tiberiu Nicolae Chirilas, the Mayor of commune Vama Buzaului.

Tourism attractions

The fact that the town is located at the foot of Ciucas mountains (with its famous Tigai and many sphinxes), that the access road is in good condition and that there is no intense traffic in this area (the locality not being on a national or European road), the area is more and more searched by tourists. A strong point is also the fact that the accommodation possibility is diversified: chalets, boarding houses, households belonging to the population, etc.
