This year Făgăraș Fest takes place in Nucșoara, in Argeș County, the gateway to the highest peak in Romania, Moldoveanu Peak (2544 m)
Nucșoara commune impresses us with its natural beauties and its historical past, with the beauty of the authentic mountain villages.
We can call it a land of legends at the foot of the Făgăraș Mountains, with a disturbing past, given the resistance to the aggressions of the past dictatorships. In the first years of the communist regime, anti-communist partisans were active in the mountain area, the locals Elisabeta Rizea and Marina Chirca standing out as two of their prominent supporters.
The commune is located in the northern edge of Argeș county, on the border with Brașov county, on the upper course of the Doamnei River, in the Făgăraș Mountains and is composed of the villages of Nucșoara, Gruiu, Sboghitești and Slatina.
The people are hardworking and welcoming, the scenery is amazing. Nucșoara is the perfect place for active holidays, for immersion and reconnection with nature.
Choose to stay with the locals or in the guesthouses in the Nucșoara area and we will prove together that ecotourism is a sustainable form of income. The use of local services brings enormous benefits to the local community, encourages them to grow healthy and protect one of the last wild regions in Europe.
