The Owl Fortress

Natural attraction


DN15, Romania


The Owl Fortress is a formation of high peaks and steep cliffs.

Starting from Izvorul Străvechi, going left on a neat trail, we reach the Pierre Curie Spring.

After a short break, we continue on a marked hiking trail, towards the picturesque landscape named Cetatea Bufnițelor (the Owl Fortress), which offers a great panorama.

Not far from the place, there is a fortification from the Second World War, with traces of bullets, machine guns nests, and pillboxes still visible today.

A place of legends and history at the same time, from where you can see the Bistrita Valley, surrounded by cliffs where the eagles build their nests.
