The largest fortified church in southeastern Europe, Prejmer was built by Teutonic knights in 1212-1213. Historical records attest that in its 500 years of existence, the fortress was besieged 50 times. However, it was only captured once, in 1611 by Gabriel Báthori, Prince of Transylvania #dronephotography #dronephoto #dronestagram #dronelife #droneporn #drone #dji #djimavic #djimavicair #fromabove #fromtheair #djiglobal #djiromania #romania #romaniainpics #romaniafromabove #heritage #pixel_ig #history #prejmer #fortifiedchurch #romaniamagica #romaniapitoreasca #descoperaromania #exploreromania #gameofdronez
Well, this is epic. Notice the rock on the left? It’s a massive bust of the Roman-slaying King Decebalus. A team of 12 sculptors spent a decade on carving this out. It was commissioned by businessman Iosif Constantin Dragan. And he made sure everyone knows: the inscription at the base reads “King Decebalus – Made By Dragan.” • • • • 📸 @amos.chapple • • • • #romania #romaniafromabove #decebalus #drone #droneshot #dronephotogrpahy #aerialphotography #river #sculpture #monument #strangeplace #rockface #epic #epicview
📍 Rupea Citadel, Rupea, Romania Romania has some of the best collections of castles/citadel's that I've ever seen.  I spent 5 days in the Transylvania region of central Romania to discover such places. -- I will admit that I found 'Cetatea Rupea' quite by accident while driving.  But, I'm so glad I discovered this amazing fortress. -- The Citadel first took form in the 14th Century when the Upper Fortress was built. In the 15th Century, the outer wall was added.  In subsequent centuries, further housing was added within the middle fortress. -- The Rupea Citadel is an impressive defensive fortress. -- #rupeacitadel #cetatearupea #rupeafortress #discoverromania #transylvaniafortress #romaniafromabove

The Măcin Mountains are one of the oldest in Romania, being formed in the second part of the Paleozoic, 300-400 million years ago. ⛰⛰⛰ #gohikingirls #macinmountains #romaniapitoreasca #romanianmountains #mountains #hikingtrail #discoverromania #romaniafromabove #ig_romania #origins
The Constanta Casino spotlit in a shaft of evening sun. The Art Nouveau masterpiece was bombed and broken in both world wars before being used to display communist propaganda. Today the casino remains empty, with squabbles continuing over how it can best be restored. • • • • 📸 @amos.chapple • • • • #romania #drone #dronephotography #fromabove #romaniafromabove #aerialshot #droneshot #eveningsun #artnouveau #architecture #abandoned #abandonedhouses #abandonedbuildings #casino
Never measure the height of a mountain until you have reached the top. Then you will see how low it was. • • • #cut1taru #quotes #quoteoftheday #mountain #romania #romaniafromabove #lookingfromabove #onthetop #soul #nature #sky #instaworld #livingthemoment #ashadetare
What is our perception of Romania? A social media survey! With @claudiumaxim , @felix.nicu and @bogdan.buzuleac - Brought to you via nomadict.org / The 88% of you - those who participated in our latest country brand image survey - think that Romania is rich in history! This is the highest point of agreement reached on the survey. In addition, you strongly believe that Romania is home to many architectural treasures and unforgettable castles. After all, Romania has been strongly linked to Dracula’s Castle! This was one of the major clichés used to describe the country. But apparently, Romania is moving away from such perception and other features seem to represent better its country’s image. Today, according to the 72% of you, “authentic, natural and cultural" are the words that best capture the essence of Romania. The 80% of you are also aware of one of the main strengths of Romania as a tourist destination. Romania vies with Bulgaria as the cheapest destination in Europe. So, it is a pretty good deal for backpackers! A domestic beer in Romania, for instance, will cost you 6 lei, or 1.42 US dollars. On the other hand, the 43% of you don’t think that “Romanians are among the friendliest and most hospitable people on earth.” This is not a negative perception per se. This simply indicates that for you there are other features that describe better Romania as a country. Furthermore, the 41% of you don’t think that Romania is a safe destination. But this perception is not in line with the facts, since Romania is among the safest and peacefullest countries in the world! Vision for Humanity - a guide to global peace and development - says that Romania ranks 24th when it comes to “safety” among the 163 countries studied. In this regard, Romania performs better than countries such as Unites States, Spain, France or Italy for instance! Did you know that? 🙂 You can find the entire results visiting the link in the Bio!
