Where eternity was born…

Organized in harmony and equilibrium, down the valleys and along the roads or clustered in flat areas, the villages in Neamţ belong to the typical area of transition between mountains and plain.

Whether you see them on the main roads or remote, among mountain peaks or hills, villages in Neamţ County reveal a special world, and remain in time the most precious gift that could be inherited. Here you encounter the source of wisdom, of majesty, of energy, where the true values are never lost, everything is more alive and more intense, and God is always present in the prayers and hearts of all the people.

We therefore invite you to step into the universe of traditional villages in Neamț, where you will discover peasant households, larger or smaller, old or new ones, with outspoken, hospitable, hardworking, and self-determined people.

In Neamț villages, you can still observe houses with archaic architectural design: houses with porches, beautifully carved wooden pillars adorned with beautiful flowers. Also, you will be able to admire the folk artistic creation in all its forms. Artisans, past and present, have contributed to the ever richer folk art, encoding in wood, clay, metal, leather, weaving and needlework, their spiritual wealth of the region in diverse artistic forms and styles, creating the interesting local specificity.

On the territory of Neamț, you will also find the highest density of churches, hermitages and monasteries, placing the county between the most cluttered areas in monastic settlements in Europe. No matter where you go, you discover values that are carved in stone, wood and chronicles, while you find your inner peace and ease of mind.

Because of all the above and more, you will discover that what Lucian Blaga was saying in his poem titled “The Soul of the Village” stands as a truth in Neamţ villages: ”I think eternity was born in the country side / Every thought takes its time here,/ and your heartbeats are slower, / as if it didn’t beat in your chest, / but deep down in the bowels of the earth. / Here your thirst for salvation is quenched / and if your feet bleed / you can sit on a mud porch.”.
