Bride's Veil and Dragon's Garden
On this trip, we will visit the City of Cluj-Napoca and its nearby natural wonders.
Bride's Veil, also known as Waterfall Răchițele, is situated in Cluj County and is one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Romania, with a drop of 30 meters. It is located at an altitude of 1000 m and its name comes from the shape the water takes when falling. However, it also created a legend that tells how a bride fall down from the rocks where the waterfall is formed and her veil remained hanging. Her beloved ones gathered where this tragedy happened and started crying, which determined the formation of this wonderful waterfall. The waterfall can be visited in summer time and also in winter time, when the rocky walls are frozen and create a fairytale white image.
Rock of the Szeklers - 1129 m high
Dragon's Garden is a natural protected area, with a surface of 3 hectares., unique in Romania, but also in Europe. The main attraction are the tall formations of rocks, which have the shape of mushrooms or towers. The shapes of the rocks have been sculpted throughout the time by the wind, rain and snow. Those kind of shapes, being located in Transylvania, naturally gave birth to quite a few legendes. On of the stories tells us about a group of dragons, which lived in the area. One day, one of them decided to steal the sun, being convinced everything on earth is meant for them. One of the young and brave inhabitants confronted the dragon to take back the sun to where it belonged. The brave man decided to confront the dragon in battle and won, took the sun and threw it back on the sky, for all the people in the world to enjoy its light. After he won, he went back to find the other dragons who had stolen the other inhabitants' young girls. Blinded and disoriented by the sun's reappearence, the dragons fall to the ground and one of the young girls put a spell on them, turning them into stones.
