Bucovina: Northeastern Romania


This is Bucovina - Romania

George Mol...

Bucovina is part of the historical region of Moldavia in Eastern/Southeastern 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.

Romania's Bicaz Gorge


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 flows on a southwards course into the Danube River and thence to a discharge point into 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: Moldavian Castle


Miclauseni Castle (Romania)

Valar Dorh...

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 the Transylvania regio (to its west) or the Wallachia region (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 when the country was formed in 1859.   

Ceahlău Massif: Eastern Carpathians


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 (which are located in the Southern Carpathian range), 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.

Contributor Nelstill combined drone and ground camera footage to come up with this excellent video about Romania's Moldavia region.  Situated in the northeast part of the country, Moldavia is Romania's portion of the historical region of Moldavia, once an independent kingdom which is now divided between Romania, Moldova, and the Ukraine.  Romanian Moldavia is an officially recognized region of the country.  It extends from the eastern Carpathian Mountains eastward to a plains area, west of the Prut River.  

Bicaz Lake and Dam


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 500MWH of electrical power on an annual basis.

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.

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.

In this excellent video by Nelstill, you'll get an aerial tour of one of Romania's natural wonders: Bicaz Gorge.  Created by the Bicaz River, the gorge acts as the boundary between the country's Transylvania and Moldavia regions.  The gorge is the centerpiece of the Cheile Bicazului-Hășmaș National Park, which occupies portions of Hargita County in Transylvania and Neamț County in Moldavia.  The gorge and park are part of the Eastern Carpathian Mountains, a chain which runs on a generally north-south axis through northeastern Romania.
