Capu Câmpului Church

Capu Câmpului Church

The church dedicated to “Transfiguration” in the neighborhood of Capu-Câmpului was built in 1892, replacing a small wooden church. The church has a simple but stately architecture, leaving a pleasant sensation of slenderness and massiveness at the same time. The interior was painted by George Stoenescu, disciple of the great painter Gheorghe...
The monument of the Three Kings

The monument of the Three Kings

As Breaza was a model village in the interwar period, and was often visited by the Royal Family, the locals raised here, in a visible place on the national road, a monument evoking the three kings that modernised Romania: Charles the 1st, Fedinand and Charles the 2nd. Built in 1934, in the modernist style of the era, the assembly consisted of several blocks of stone bearing bas-reliefs of the coat of arms, the royal crown, the profile faces of the kings – all works in bronze by the sculptor Ion T. Aldea. Unfortunately, the monument has suffered repeated vandalism before 1989 – it is said that first, the Legionnaires took off the kings’ effigies to erase the memory of their enemy, Charles the 2nd. Today few people know the story of the gray stone blocks, still standing under the trees of the...
The Large Glade of Lazu

The Large Glade of Lazu

A special place in the landscape of Breaza; once you get here, you’ll think you reached the most hidden nook of the Carpathians, in a typical mountain meadow. The coniferous forest nearby, the green grass and the tranquility of this isolated place make you forget all your worries and enjoy the...
The Fir Tree Edge

The Fir Tree Edge

The Lazu Hill, which dominates the town from the north, has a picturesque place, visible from great distances and also a relaxing place for the locals. It is a selvage planted with pine trees back in the nineteenth century, by the Bibescu-Brâncoveanu family. The place is photogenic in any season and offers wide views both to the south, with the entire city and north to the upper basin of Târsa.    The easiest way to reach the pine trees is by Lazului street – turning left at the first curve of Capu Câmpului coils (or right at the last curve, if you come from Gura Beliei). At the end of the street you will reach the great clearing of Lazu, then through the beech forest you ascend to the large unpaved road (DJ 206) that crosses the forest. Following this road to the left, and then to the right at the top, you will soon get to the Fir Tree Edge. You can either return by Plaiului street, or continue northward on DJ 206, through the forest up to Tălii street which leads you downhill to Gura Beliei. Another alternative is this track: Lazu hill circuit route –...
Princess’ Beech

Princess’ Beech

Deep in the Cheia Proviţei forest, in a clearing on the left bank of the Târsa stream, we find a secular beech with a bushy crown. Known by locals as “Copacu ‘ăl Mare” or “Princess’ Beech“, it is said that it guarded the favorite place of rest of Princess Zoe Bibescu-Brâncoveanu, owner of Breaza estate a century and a half ago, or that, earlier, under its branches would have stopped the famous outlaw Iancu Jianu, escaped from the prison of Telega. A scenic hiking trail in circuit gets here. It is currently under marking (red triangle), starts in the town and passes through the valley of Târsa and the Lazu forest –...
