Ghost Castle from Valea Lui Pătru

Click on the photos to see an enlarged version



Pătru's Valley (Valea Lui Pătru) is a small village surrounded by forest, situated about 20 km south of Filiaşi, foggy and covered with snow in this winter photo. This name, "Pătru" is a very old word, derived from "Petre" (or "Peter" in english) in a folk form, as are many words used in this area

Pătru was an outlaw, a bandit of the 18th century, who had a house hidden underground in the area of the future village, in a forest on a hill. Eventually he had a family, and when a village was built in a valley nearby, the village took the name Valea Lui Pătru which it bears to this day.
