Photography Tour of Romania: Traditional Villages & Local Life

The best way to discover Romanian culture is to see local life where the centuries-old way of life and traditions are well preserved. As a photographer, I document Romanian village life with my camera and can take you on a tour to the best places where you can photograph local life around Brasov, for amazing and unique photos of Romanian locals and landscapes!

What you need to know about this photo tour in Romania:

  • This is a private trip starting from Brasov designed for photographic opportunities. Duration: 5-6h
  • Included: transport and guidance. On our way back can stop for a meal at some good local places I know
  • Depending on weather conditions and your preference, we can choose between 3 villages: Holbav, Sirnea or Moeciu, and the starting time to catch the early sun or sunset
  • We will visit mountain villages, meet locals, see their homes and daily life. While I know most of them, we must be respectful of their privacy and property
  • Expect moderate walking and a bit of hillside hiking. You will also see many locals selling homemade or handmade products
