Sovata





Trekking Klub - trekking, hiking and caving photos header Ed's hiking trip in Transylvania Narrative by Ed Kindley, Wildwood, MO, USA

 

Backtracking west a couple miles, we turned north on Hiway 13, then right on 13A headed for the city of Sovata. On the way we passed thru the village of Fantinele which features a sunken church. Apparently after being built, over time the whole church settled into the ground, leaving only a meter (39 inches) entryway into the building. Everyone who enters must bow down, not a bad idea of entering a church anyhow. We did not stop to view it up close.

Arriving at the city of Sovata we parked at a Spa Hotel, and walked down to see the salt lake, Bear Lake (Lacul Ursu), another salt-water lake spa. Before beginning our walk around the lake, we stopped at a food shack and had a cheese pie (round yeast dough like a small pizza, deep fried, and then topped with sour cream and grated cheese). We walked around the lake, saw several bathers floating without rafts, took some pictures, also a shot of Peter and Ed to post on the internet (Peter wearing the Ozark Trail cap and OT June 2nd Workday T-shirt I brought for him). After the lake, Peter went back up to bring the car, Ed had a cold Fanta.

Back - Sighisoara - Next - Praid Salt Hills
