Dacian Fortresses of the Orastie Mountains...Romania

Bijuterii ale Romaniei in Patrimoniul UNESCO (V)Whole settlements and fortifications Sureanu Mountains is known as the Dacian Fortresses Orastie Mountains, mostly concentrated in the river basin, which became a tributary of the river Mures. Here we find, on an area of approximately 200 km2, numerous stone walls fortification system component Costesti-Dacian fortress, Costesti-Blidaru, Luncani Red-Stone, Directed Sarmizegetusa, Banita and Capalna.

Stretching to the foot of towering peaks, Dacian settlements and fortifications are equally amazing chance for visitors and experts in archeology, impressing the site well thought through and the monumental character variety of forms. Most civil construction, made of perishable materials, have not survived, so that an unauthorized person can hardly imagine their configuration and their number now. Others, however, wholly or partly constructed of stone blocks were preserved well enough that he could give an indication of their former greatness. The crystalline schists predominate Sureanu Massif - brittle and hard rock carving - so that the limestone for construction of Dacian fortresses was exploited and brought about dozens of kilometers, Magura Hill, located east of Calan and andesitic in Bejan career at Deva.

These vestiges Dacian unique in Europe and even throughout the ancient world, shows striking similarities with other sites around the pre-Roman Dacia. They testify about a flourishing civilization, superior in many respects to those developed by other European nations in the regions outside the ancient Roman Empire. In all cities find traditional strongholds systems combined (wave, palisade) with shaped stone. The latter, inspired by the Hellenistic world, were lifted from the mid century BC, with the participation of artisans coming from the Greek cities on the western shore of the Black Sea, demonstrated and points / groups Greek letters written on some blocks. Hellenistic wall of the wall consists of two carefully carved limestone blocks, which alternated with transverse blocks (tun) on the wall direction. The space between two rows of blocks filled with emplecton (crumbled stone and earth) well beaten. To avoid any lateral thrust to the emplectonului perfect compaction, block gutters are digging in "dovetail", where sat the heads of wooden beams which united both the wall. Dacian Wall (Murus dacicus) reproduces the Hellenistic wall, but except butisele. Dacian Fortresses were raised around shrines of stone and wood. Identified two types of religious buildings: circular and rectangular. The material used was made in this case from Magura Calan and Bejan.

Archaeological research in light of civil settlements, farms, workshops, ways, roads that cross the mountain peaks and traversing waterways, aqueducts terracotta, sewage systems, water tanks, sacred spaces, impressive fortifications - from the traditional , made of wood and earth walls, the strong fortress, surrounded by walls of limestone. In all these sites was found a large quantity of diverse archaeological material: pottery, tools and metal objects, weapons, bronze and glass objects, coins, pieces made of precious metals, etc.. Territory on which stood the capital of Dacia was inhabited sporadically and before the end of II century BC, the oldest discoveries (made from Cioclovina cave) dating from the Upper Palaeolithic period. Then, a few thousand years later, he established the first community in the area Indoeuropeans, Culture bearers Cojofeni Thracian ancestors.

Thracian tribes, the northern branch, the Geto-Dacians that was individualized by some peculiarities of language and the belief in immortality, configuring a tribal union located on the middle of Mures. By the end of II century BC and early next century, the center faction is in the city-fortress Costesti and draws its economic vigor, thus implicitly political power of manoasa Mures Valley, with its agricultural land excellent Metalliferous Mountains, with their gold deposits, and the Massif Sureanu rich in metal ores. Management reached sometime before the year 82 BC, managed to gather under Burebista scepter or Daco-Getian most tribal unions and to found a kingdom stretched from the Balkans to the Carpathian Mountains and forests in Moravia (the Czech Republic today) up on the shore of the Dnieper, the Boristene and Olbia. All Burebista concealed older kingdom and built other fortifications. They watched the main commercial roads of Dacia and to close those that crossed the Carpathians. Fortification work was continued by descendants Burebista so, within a period of two centuries, the kingdom if it was endowed with some 100 fortresses, of which 91 still operating in Decebalus.

Burebista reign (about 1982-1944 BC) Deceneu priest and close collaborator of the king, he stayed on the holy mountain of the Dacians, Kogaion, which was founded Sarmizegetusa. Although the vast dominion of Burebista was fragmented in the first four, then five parts, with the center core kingdom lasted Orastie Mountains. From there he started last and unification of Geto-Dacians, the work of his predecessors Diurpaneus, called Decebal - and that name remained in history. Burebista death, the leadership took a Deceneus and he also moved the capital from Sarmizegetusa Directed Costesti-fortress, the sacred mountain. From then on - or no later than the time of Comosicus, Deceneu successor - Dacian kings have accumulated three supreme power in the state: political, military and religious, which was perpetuated and during Decebal.

After the War of Trajan, took place in 101-102, Decebal was forced to partially dismantled fortifications, including those of capital, but in the years 103-104 which has rebuilt and even some of them developed. During the War of Trajan, 105-106, and immediately after that, all the Dacian fortresses were burned and destroyed by the Romans, except Sarmizegetusa. The latter remained a garrison of the first Romanian to repair the damage caused to wall during the siege, after which the city expanded to the dimensions that we know today. Garrison - a detachment of the Fourth Legion, Flavia Felix - remained quartered here throughout the reign of the Dacian fortresses are known Traian.Vestigiile natives from time immemorial, as a frequent point and place names: Castle, fortress, Blidaru, Gradiste, but have come to the knowledge of scholars with interest in history until later. The earliest written mention dates from the second half of XVI century, when it noticed the existence of a city - the fundamentals of sight and stone walls - situated in the mountains, not far from Orastie.

After further centuries of silence, the discovery of gold coin in 1784-1785 and especially after 1802, attracted the attention of authorities, an event followed in the years 1837 and 1847, by visiting some of the ruins to learn. Therefore, in the early twentieth century, Gabor said that the Gradistea Muncelului Teglas was the last refuge of Decebal. Systematic excavations led by professional archaeologists, but only began in 1924 under the baton of Professor Dimitrie Mihail Teodorescu, University of Cluj. Since then, with interruptions variables, they have continued under the leadership of Daicoviciu Constantine, Hadrian and John Glodariu Daicoviciu, so today known location of all remains important, even if they have not yet been fully investigated. Dacian fortresses ruins proving the existence of a flourishing economy based on widespread use of iron tools and the exchange activities, in particular with the Pontus Greeks and Roman Euxinus. Dacian capital defense system was the strongest and one of the most sophisticated defensive structures of the Dacian state.

Fortresses area was both the first (101-102) and in the second (105-106) war with the Roman Empire, the scene of fierce battles. But knowing the economic power of Dacia and skillful use of natural obstacles in the fight offered by steep mountainous terrain and impressive fortification system, we can find an explanation for the duration of military operations and prolonged resistance in front of people if invaders. Study sites and archaeological remains can shape an objective view of the level of civilization attained by the Dacians during confrontations with the Romans and offers the possibility of comparison with that achieved by other European nations at that time. Recovery of all tourist and scientific Dacian fortresses should clarify their legal status, their good management, and achieving key goals in the fields of infrastructure, expansion of archaeological research and conservation / restoration program remains on a long nationalized.

Jewels of Romania UNESCO Heritage

 "United would make waves and would have absolutely no movement, but water would rot and would Bahu, if its temperature would be equal everywhere, mankind would decay into corruption, speculation and pornocratie, if not differences exist between peoples and especially cultural differences of life "- I quote from Eminescu.
I bumped into the news this opinion with a little while ago when we went to visit Bucovina "mural churches in northern Moldavia, the first half of XVI century" - this is the name of "catalog" painted churches of Bucovina, settlements located on the UNESCO World Heritage list. From among many such houses in the area can be found on the UNESCO list from Moldova, tree, Patrauti, Suceava (church dedicated to Saint George Saint John the New Monastery) Probota Voronet and Humor. Exceptional embodiment of "differences of culture and life, are called churches and landmarks of orthodoxy, some of them, most notably, parts of pilgrimage tourism. Instance, Voronet Humor and Moldova are really overrun by tourists (mostly foreigners, attracted just the "differences" mentioned earlier). A reflex reporting damage and psychoanalysis to "goat neighbor, many promotional materials for Voronet talk about it calling it" the Sistine Chapel of the East ". The uniqueness and originality are precisely the qualities that attract tourists to Voronet way likeness (however forced) the Sistine Chapel. History, culture and traditions, all born and gives identity (national), "would rot and would Bahu" and that no great movement in the absence of specific differences.

Say that some churches are heritage (good thing he) ultravizitate. There are also some whose reputation has yet to match their beauty: Shaft, Probota Patrauti. I linger a bit on the subject Patrauti because there is no how to get the chance. To get to Patrauti have to do to get there. How do you get? Get a map and search any place: a finding at about 10 km northwest of Suceava. Why go to Patrauti? Here's one reason: to know the young priest Gabriel Hera who with his wife Cristina, toils for raising the reputation Patrautilor proper place. The local church was built by Stephen the Great in the year 1487 and was meant to church of a monastery of nuns, the monastery that were to be cared for the wounded in wars. In itself, the church is a small jewel (is the smallest of the foundations of Stephen the Great). Exterior painting is done only on the west wall (the entrance of the church). The interior is adorned with a beautiful, rich and original paintings, whose restoration is working on for years and it will take yet. On how demanding is the fresco painting technique (here you will not go wrong, because any wrong coughing can not be corrected) as it is pretentious and expensive is to restore the same painting. The recipe, however, is simple: we need skilled craftsmen, time and money. Masters are, time is of God, the money is a problem. Not discourage him, but the priest Gabriel here.

Few visitors who come to Patrauti are "welcome note" of Michael, father wife Hera who knows and tells with grace, in several languages, as needed, the story of the church. Inside, the walls still wear wooden scaffolding. From year to year, but looks like scaffolding Herea father down - it was originally built to the top of the tower, now only about three highest levels. On leaving the church caught my attention a building that said Museum. Was the home parish, whose ground floor was transformed into a museum by the same parent trouble here. Why? Out of respect for the fact that that building was a model priest living in the middle of the community it serves and that was a landmark among members of the Movement Tree, the Romanian national movement in Bukovina in the second half of the nineteenth and early twentieth century. Herea parent plans do not stop there: "We intend to build in the future garden parish social and cultural center that will facilitate access to monuments in art history student in northern Moldova." Go to yourselves, at Patrauti " The man sanctifies the place "not just an empty promise.

Vlad Tepes Dracula and legend and truth ....

In 1387 the king of Hungary to build a military-religious society called the Order of the Dragon. Order symbol was a dragon, and its purpose was defending Christianity and organization of the Crusades against the Ottoman Empire.
Vlad Tepes was born in 1431 in the fortress of Sighisoara. His father, Vlad Dracul, at that time was governor of Transylvania, depending on who was called by Emperor Sigismund. Tepes was a grandson of another great Roman prince: Mircea the Old (1386-1418). His father is first in Dragon and gets the nickname of Dracul.
In the winter of 1436 father of Vlad becomes ruler of Tara Romanesti.Vlad with his brother Radu as hostages are asked by the sultan of the Ottoman Empire.
Father and brother are murdered by those boyars Vlad vremuri.La age of 17 years helped by the army of the Ottoman Empire became the ruler of Tara Romaneasti (Wallachia).
Discontented boyars after several months he removed from power by Vlad.
After several years on the throne of Wallachia, Vlad returns and decides to take revenge on the boyars of Targoviste (capital of the country).
The Easter Sunday of 1459, he arrested all the boyar families who participated in the party in Munich. The oldest were impaled, and others were forced to walk on down the road one hundred miles from the capital, where they were made to build a fortress on the ruins of an ancient outpost.
For impaled boyars drew he named Vlad Tepes Dracula.
Dracula soon became famous because of its brutal methods of punishment. According to Saxon merchants of Transylvania, he often ordered to be skinned osândiţii skin, boiled, decapitated, blinded, strangled, hanged, burned, roasted, chopped, cast in stone, buried alive, etc.. Also, set to be cut victims nose, ears, genitals and limba.Însă favorite torture was impalement, from which the nickname Tepes, who pale.
Description method "impalement".
The aim was to crucify the man so that the victim would suffer terrible pain for hours or even days, until he was the soul.
Preparing a large stake, longer than the stature of a man who will lay the ground (rarely, cut and trim a thin tree), the tip is sharp as a nail and lubricated with tallow, to slip.
Therefore, the most common method to his executioners Impaler, prostrate victim, with arms tied behind his back and stick spike through the anus, then pulling both legs tied with ropes to the ankles. Then beat with a mallet in the other end of Tepe, careful to not pierce the two organs known to cause immediate death: liver and gravity inima.Tarusul was high and their duty. The man stood as crucified, in terrible agony, but the vital organs functioning. Dying with little suffering, thirsty, hungry and attack crows who came attracted by the smell.
Almost any crime, from lying and stealing to killing, could be punished by Impalement. Being sure of the effectiveness of its laws, Vlad Tepes Dracula left, they say, large cup of gold to the central square of Târgovişte.Cana can be used by thirsty travelers, but had to remain in place. According to historical sources during his cup was not never stolen and remained almost unused.
After another legend, Vlad Dracul had staged a robbery (a bag with 50 gold) a country gentleman of advice, after which he, before the prince, claimed to be furaseră 100 coins. To lie to, was impaled.
One day all vagabonds and thieves in the country were invited to Româneacă princely court in Targoviste, at a feast. After they eat and drink ordered that Hall be closed and burnt. No one survived.
In early 1462, Vlad launched a campaign against the Turks on the Danube, killing over 38,000 people. Because emissaries refused to give turbanele down in front of it, Vlad made sure that the emissaries will keep them so, he ordered them to be nailing heads.
During an invasion, the Sultan, exhausted, came close to the capital, faced with a frightening view: Tepe claimed thousands of bodies of over 20,000 Turkish captives, a terrifying scene that was later dubbed "Forest Tepe.
Vlad the Impaler used to sign the "Dracula" or "Dracula" - son fuck - name, which then turned into Dracula.
In 1897, the Irish writer Bram Stoker published Dracula, Vlad Tepes who was famous throughout the world. Stoker read the stories about Dracula, published in the centuries XV - XVI and was shocked by the cruelty of his acts. And it was decided to choose as the main character. He read some books about Transylvania (the name is of Latin origin and means "land beyond the forest") and thought that the country "exotic" would be an appropriate setting for Dracula's deeds. In fact, Stoker used Vlad only as a source of inspiration, as in his novel, Dracula is not prince Vlad the Impaler, but a Transylvanian count living in a mysterious castle where he lured victims.
The collections of the British Museum Vlad is described as a monster, a vampire drinking the blood of man and a great lover of cruelty.
Further support the hypothesis that there is a real link between Vlad Tepes Dracula and the modern myth of vampires, Vlad the first vampire in the world.
