Discover Romania - Transylvania

Surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains, Transylvania- Terra Ultrasilvana or “the land beyond the forests” - is the territory where the Dacian state, ruled by King Burebista, experienced the most prosperous period in the history of the Geto-Dacians and, at the same time, by its organisation and expansion, it laid the foundation of the future Romanian territories.

Issued 15. March 2013 the stamps show as follows:

Fortified Church from Viscri (Brasov County)

Guest House from Valea Zalanului (Covasna County)

Landscape from Hosman (Sibiu County)

Saint Mihail Church from Cluj-Napoca (Cluj County)

Thanks to Viridian who is keeping up the good job with Sunday Stamps. I am glad I could take part this time too. Do you want to see more churches and castles? Take a look at her Blog.


  1. Some stunning buildings. I stayed in Brasov once, beautiful countryside.

  2. Beautiful stamps and buildings.

  3. Hello Agi, Lisa and Joy, nice to see you here. We have stayed in Brasov for 3 years, before moving to Germany. It is indeed a very nice place to be.

  4. Romania is a country I know virtually nothing about, These stamps are a beautiful introduction. Prince Charles's nauture reserve looks very restful.

  5. I like that you posted also the pictures. The stamps are wonderful.

  6. I hadn't seen any of these stamps before, but the others I've gotten from Romania have all been as impressive.

  7. It's really nice to see a photo together with the buildings featured on the stamps.

  8. Thank you for joining in with Sunday Stamps!
