At the History Crossroads


Vama Buzaului commune, with its three villages ? Buzaiel, Acris and Dalghiu ? enters as an appendix into the territory of Covasna county, although it is part of Brasov county. The Romanian community enjoy a splendid location, with an exceptional geography, a reach flora and fauna and multiple possibilities to develop the agro-tourism, as in Bran-Moieciu area.

Ancient Shepherd Population

Its name has two components. Vama is the old customs instituted by the Austrian dominion; Buzau is the name of the river passing through. During the Antiquity, it became a boundary settlement between the later historical regions Transylvania and Walachia, being the most circulated trans-Carpathian pass. Its location, on the cross of the roads, ensured to the inhabitants a history reached in major events.
The historical sources talk about traces of life since the Neolithic. The archaeological, linguistic and ethnographical researches proved the existence of a stable population of Walachian shepherds that the Hungarians found here when they settled down in the surroundings after the 9th century.

Touring Potential

As mayor Tiberiu Nicolae Chirilas stated, the area is engaged in a durable development process. It is also a very propitious spot to organize open-air camps for sculptors and researchers, with a very diversified potential such as the certified agrotouring area, the orthodox church, the ruins of the old catholic chapel, the wood sculpture camp, agrotouring boarding houses, an impressive water fall called ?Urlatoarea?.

Genuine Ways of Life

The local county and the town hall assigned funds to rehabilitate the churches and to promote the traditions. Several investments have been made in the cultural field and two communitarian houses have been rehabilitated: Vama Buzaului and Acris, the last one being inaugurated with big pomp.
The inhabitants are very hospitable people, happy to show the tourists a genuine way of life and offer them the taste of the local gastronomy.
