Moldavia: Dream Story


Take a tour of northeastern Romania enshrouded in winter snows, compliments of contributor and drone pilot Nelstill.  Moldavia is one of the official regions of Romania.  It lies to the east of Transylvania, to the north of Wallachia, and to the northwest of Dobrogea (Dubruja).  It is, in many respects, the cultural core of the country, which didn't exist as a nation-state until the Principalities of Moldavia and Wallachia united in 1859.  Enjoy the beautiful views of this land between the Carpathians and the Pruit River.

Bucovina is part of the region of Moldavia in Eastern Europe, running north from the Eastern Carpathian Mountains.  It was once entirely within the borders of Romania but the northern part of it was taken by the Soviet Union before World War II and is now part of the Ukraine.  Contributor George Moldovan created a brilliant video of the Romanian portion of Bucovina, a mountainous pastoral land replete with impressive baronial estates and medieval churches and monasteries.

Cheile Bicazului, Romania


Contributor ChrisCross created this stunning drone video of a massive gorge in the Moldavia region of northeastern Romania.  Bicaz Gorge (Cheile Bicazului) was created by the Bicaz River, which eventually flows into the Danube and thence to the Black Sea.  One of the most popular rock climbing sites in Europe, it is situated near the border with the neighboring region Transylvania to the west.  The great canyon is now part of the Cheile Bicazului-Hășmaș National Park.

Miclauseni Castle (Romania)

Valar Dorhalis

Romania's Moldavia region is part of what was once the Principality of Moldavia, which united with Wallachia to form modern Romania in 1862.   While the Moldavia region is not as well known for its castles as Transylvania (to its west) or Wallachia (to its south), it does boast of some impressive castles.  In this video, contributor Valar Dorhalis uses a drone to film the Miclauseni, near the city of Iasi which was the capital of the Principality and briefly of Romania.

Ceahlau Mountain


Contributor Catachuppy used a DJI Phantom drone to create this stunning aerial video of the mountains of northeastern Romania.  The video was shot in the Ceahlău Massif, part of the Eastern Carpathian Mountains in the Moldavia region of Romania.  While these peaks are not the tallest in Romania, they are amongst the most well known, in part for their stunning rock formations.  The area is home to some of the most popular rock climbing spots in Romania.

Bicaz Dam


Contributor Catchuppy gives us a bird's eye view of Bicaz Lake and Dam in the Moldavia region of northeastern Romania.  The dam was completed during the Communist era in the 1950's.  It created Bicaz Lake, the largest artificial lake in the country.  The dam has a height of just over 127 meters (almost 400 ft.), making it one of the tallest dams in Eastern or Southeastern Europe.  The dam has installed capacity of just over 200MW and generates about 500MW of power per year.

Visit Moldova the North-East Region of Romania


Moldova was a historical region of Europe which has a complex history.  Its eastern half came under the control of Russia and later the USSR before emerging as modern-day Moldova in the 1990's.  Its western half became part of the core of Romania, although a portion of these lands was seized by the USSR before World War II and is now part of the Ukraine.  In this drone video by Nelstill, you'll get a bird's eye view of the Romanian core of this land, including beautiful shots of Suceava, Iași, and Vaslui.

Romania is the fifth largest wine producer in Europe and the largest east of Italy.  One of the country's bigger winegrowing areas is an area around Focșani in Vrancea County in the eastern part of the country, where the foothills of the Eastern Carpathians transition to the valley of the Siret River, a Danube tributary.  Contributor T H Neascu used a DJI Spark drone to create this outstanding bird's eye view of the area known as the Tuscany of Romania for its resemblance to the Italian winegrowing region.
