Moieciu commune consists of six villages: Moieciu de Jos, Moieciu de Sus, Cheia, Drumul Carului, Magura and Pestera, all of them being part of an area having a very high tourism potential, suitable for developing all forms of tourism. In the last years, the mountain agricultural tourism developed and the quality of services in the accommodation units increased.
Moieciu area is the ideal place for spending a successful vacation outdoors.
The natural frame offering marvellous landscapes, the air full of ozone, ecologic traditional gastronomic products, mountain water springs, hospitality of the locals and the customs and traditions determine the tourist to spend their vacations in this place.
?The experienced gained in the past few years has proven us that the rural tourism is a successful business, prefiguring as the main viable source of development of this area. Out of the practiced forms of tourism, I would like to mention the rest tourism ? encouraged by natural factors and landscaping frame, weekend tourism, preferred due to the relatively small distances between the area and the big cities and hiking, practiced throughout the year in the surrounding areas and on the Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains?, said Mr Mircea Manea, Mayor of Moieciu.
The cultural event tourism is another form of tourism determining people to specially come to this place in order to participate in events for promoting the customs and traditions to the locals. Among these, we would like to mention the custom called ?Sumedru?s fire?, a night ceremony for renewal of the calendar time. Organizers build a big fire, looking like a burnt stake, around which all the people living in the village gather. They all shout together ?Let?s go to Sumedru?s fire!?. Women give away bagels, nuts and apples. At the end, participants take hot charcoals and use it to fertilize their gardens and orchards.
Actually, the holiday has a pre-Christian principle, and the fires that used to be built had the purpose of banishing the evil spirits. In Bran / Moieciu / Fundata area, where the main occupation is raising sheep, the ?Sumedru?s Fire? custom is considered ?the living fire? of Romanian shepherds, the fire symbolising the purification of the shepherds and herds in particular. This year, in Moieciu commune, on ?Sumedru?s Fire? was also organized an artistic program performed by young local talents.
