Romania facts and history in brief

Excerpted from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Gheorgheni (Hungarian: Gyergyószentmiklós) is a town in Harghita county, in Romania.

It was first mentioned in 1332 and was part of Kingdom of Hungary, then to the Principate of Transylvania (1557-1765), to the Grand Duchy of Transylvania (1765-1867), later again to Hungary (1867-1918) and finally to Romania (since 1918).

Nearby are two spectacular natural sites, the Lacu Rosu a beatutiful lake in the mountains, and in close proximity is the Cheile Bicazului which is a dramatic narrow canyon through the Eastern Carpathian Mountains forming the border with Neamt county.

It has a population of 20,018, of which 87.6% (17,527) are Szekelys (2002 census).

This information was correct in November 2005. E. & O.E.

Gheorgheni was on our 'wish to see' list mainly because even today it is a Székely stronghold.

Hui Chin and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this city.

Unfortunately I do not have many of my photos of this place left, although we had four cameras between us and we have taken many, many photos wherever we went, two of my most favoured cameras: a JVC video camera I favoured because of the quality of photos it produced, ease of use and its excellent compression rate, and my Panasonic camera for its miniature size. Both had large, 512 MB SD Cards and many thousands of photos on them were stolen from my bag, later into our trip, by some 'lowlife', with my wallet and money.
You'll see this message a few times, because my JVC and Panasonic cameras' cards had many-many pictures stored on them.
