Conference Visit 1Istriţa Fruit Nursery & Pietroasa Viticulture and Enology Research and Development Station

There are no more places left for this visit!

Participation fee: 50 RON.

Istriţa Fruit Nursery (http://www.pepinieraistrita.ro/film-de-prezentare): The year 1893 marks the beginning of the Istriţa Fruit Nursery, whose initial task was to multiply the vine seeding material resistant to phylloxera attacks which had destroyed the Romanian viticultural material in only 10 years. At the same time, it was aimed to develop the fruit-growing patrimony in the Curvature Sub-Carpathians region. In 1895 there already was a rich collection of types from almost all fruit tree and shrub species and parent stock saplings were produced and used in grafting valuable types.

The nursery fields and the existing fruit tree collections served as study material for generations of students, but also for researchers who worked here overtime. After its reintegration in 2005, as a component of the University of Agronomic Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Bucharest, the Istriţa Farm embarked on a new complex modernisation and refurbishment process.

For over 115 years the nursery has continued to adorn the hills with vineyards, improve varieties of grape-vine, create new ones, hide in the cellar new "treasure", this time located in the bottles.

Pietroasa Viticulture and Enology Research and Development Station(http://www.pietroasaveche.ro/film-de-prezentare): These "treasures" were with more than 120 medals in national and international competitions, more especially for sweet wines, some spices, for which Pietroasa is unsurpassed vocation. After taking it, in 2005, University of Agronomic Sciences and Veterinary Medicine of Bucharest put two "bricks", to rebuild the resort: young plantations and ensuring primary wine on modern principles, ensuring at the same time that students can gain both practical skills and theoretical knowledge. Recently, Pietroasa Viticulture and Enology Research and Development Station, trade resumed its exceptional wines under its own label - "Pietroasa veche."

Conference Visit 2Bran Castle  (Dracula's Castle) – Predeal – Peleş Castle

There are no more places left for this visit!

Bran Castle (Romanian: Castelul Bran) (http://www.bran-castle.com), situated near Bran and in the immediate vicinity of Braşov, is a national monument and landmark in Romania.

The building of Bran Castle started somewhere around the year 1378. The castle had a protective and commercial purpose.

Many legends are connected with Bran Castle. It is said the castle belonged to Count Dracula (Vlad Tepes), but nobody has any proof. Vlad Tepes lived only for a short time in the castle and only as a guest.

In 1897 Bram Stoker wrote a terrifying story about Count Dracula. Stoker's story is based on the life of Vlad Tepes/Vlad the Impaler (1431-1476), a ruler revered by Romanians for standing up to the Ottoman Empire. Known as one of the most dreadful enemies of the Turks, Vlad started organizing the state and enforcing the law by applying death penalty and impaling all those he considered enemies. The historians nicknamed him Vlad Tepes while people say he was Count Dracula because he used to sign with his father's name, Dracul "The Devil". Dracula is derived from the Romanian word for devil or dragon.

Predeal is the northernmost resort on the Prahova Valley from Carpathian Mountains, located 25 km from Brasov and 147 km from Bucharest. It is the town on the highest elevation in Romania at 1033 m altitude.

Peleş Castle (http://www.peles.ro) is a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains, near Sinaia resort. It was built at the initiative of King Charles I of Romania in 1874.

The courtyard has a merry decoration, made out of plants and flowers; all round, the building's facades are animated by elegant drawings. The interior of the castle is a true wonder, due to the beauty and richness of the sculpted wood and the stained glass windows.

The establishment hosts one of the finest collections of art in Eastern and Central Europe, consisting of statues, paintings, furniture, arms and armor, gold, silver, stained glass, ivory, fine china, tapestries, and rugs. The collection of arms and armor has over 4,000 pieces, divided between Eastern and Western war pieces and ceremonial or hunting pieces, spreading over four centuries of history.
