Copper forest

The name of the forest (The Copper Forest) comes from the colors the leaves have in autumn time. The forest is one of the most beautiful places in this part of the country. The “Codri de Aramă” are placed on a hill, named Filior, and at its foot the Filioara brook passes through the meadows, with small marshes and clumps of wilting. Here there are oaks and other species of oaks, which are more than 100 years old, plus more than 300 species of plants. If you come to the forest at the sunset time, under the light of the sun, you will be able to admire the “heaven of incense” described by Mihai Eminescu in the poem “Călin, file din poveste“ (Călin, story files).

The tourists who come to the area have many possibilities of accommodation, in the guest houses of Agapia or in the surrounding villages, where they will experience local hospitality. The locals will tell you stories about Mihai Eminescu’s hidden encounters with Veronica Micle, or give examples of neighbours who have baptised their children with names from Eminescu’s poems.
