Bicaz Gorges – Claudiu OROS Photography

24 July 2020 No Comment

“The Stone Kingdom” of Bicaz Gorges is a particularly picturesque area in Neamţ Land. Considered the most famous gorges in Romania and most spectacular limestone valleys in Europe, they are located in the central part of Hăşmaş Mountains, in the eastern chain of the Romanian Carpathians. The protected area displays a fantastic view for any traveller passing by: giant stone walls, of over 300m high, crossed by the furious waters of Bicaz creek, make way for a serpentine road of rare beauty. Accompanied by the harsh voice of the wind, each stone giant has a story to tell: “The Altar Stone”, impressively and majestically guarding the road, recalls those times when the Dacians, Romanian’s ancestors, used to practice their worship rituals here, about 5000 years ago; “The “Hell’s Throat”, where the rocky massifs meet up in the sky, evokes memories of the harsh battles with the elements, which it had conquered, over the ages, while “The Guardian”, a straight wall that completes the apocalyptic landscape, is proud to tell about all the brave climbers who tried to escalate it, in the attempt to push their limits.
