Why in Fundata, Romania?

At merely a 3-hour drive from Bucharest International Airport, after passing by the Bran Castle (‘Dracula’s Castle’) on the way up to the mountains, the road literally ends in Fundata (in Romanian meaning ‘end of the road’). Here lays the highest inhabited village in Romania, at 1400 m altitude.

Being surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains and their forests, Fundata enjoys breath-taking views, some of the cleanest air in Europe, trails, abundant wildlife as well as a quite well-preserved ancestral way of living that may be inspirational to many.

Besides its fascinating relief, vegetation, fauna, and people, Fundata has also an instant charming energy. Whoever arrives to Fundata suddenly wants to buy land and build a house. It happened to us and to some of our friends.

Part of the ‘explanation’ about the place’s magnetic energy may have to do with a legend we learnt from a local orthodox (not so orthodox) priest. According to him, the earth’s electromagnetic lines that used to intersect in Tibet have moved in the area of Fundata in 1987. This may be yet another reason why people fall in love with the place and come to marry and build houses there! We haven’t investigated the subject any further, as we kept it as a nice to share story from an eccentric priest, documented on video for posterity.

A ‘supporting evidence’ to his story is this article about Romania. You will decide in which category to place it – legends, science or both. We haven’t made up our minds on it yet.

Fables and legends aside, Charley Ottley’s ‘Wild Transylvania’ documentary may give you extra reasons why you should bring your own nature in Fundata’s nature, where, together with experienced facilitators and like-minded participants, you could plan and start living the life you want to live.
