Magical Photos From The Legendary Countryside Of Transylvania, Romania

Alex Robciuc is a Romanian photographer capturing the fairytale-like countryside of Transylvania.

This area is legendary for tall tales of Dracula and incredible wilderness. The rolling hills are covered in vibrant green grass and trees that change colors as fall sets in. Tiny huts and massive castles rise from the mist early in the morning, adding a quiet air of mystery.

It isn't hard to understand why this region inspired so many folktales.

I tried to remind us of a time when heroes brought order to chaos when dark forests still keep its secrets.

"In the last year, I have photographed the sunrise and the sunset from different corners hidden from circulated roads or modern cities," Robciuc says of his inspiration. "Places with strange and supernatural beauty and I often felt that time stopped in these places... the feeling was odd as if you were waiting for the characters from the grandma`s stories, or characters from the complex history of these places to appear in front of you."

"In this series, I photographed centuries old abandoned mountain villages, remote medieval hill fortresses, vineyards of lost kings, haunted castles, ancient untouched forests, mountain pastures, villages where transport is based on ox and cart, portraying the pastoral idyll of Transylvania," Robciuc continues. "I tried to remind us of a time when heroes brought order to chaos when dark forests still keep its secrets."
