Orasul Campina / The town of Cimpina

Orasul Campina este situat pe valea Prahovei, oras atestat documentar inca din 1503.  Fata de nebunia Bucurestiului, Campina este o adevarata schimbare de peisaj… cladiri mici, aer curat, masini putine (majoritatea dacii vechi).

Deoarece gara Campina este situata in afara orasului, am reusit sa gresesc drumul de acces catre oras, si am ocolit putin pe un drum national, intrand ulterior pe o poteca montana superba care ma dus fix intre 2 blocuri din oras. Deja eram excited sa vad ca trec de la „munte” direct la oras 🙂 Orasul este destul de mic si se poate vizita foarte lejer in jumatate de zi, astfel cum aveam o zi intreaga planuita aici am decis sa ma extind si sa ma duc pana in satul Brebu, unde am vazut Casa domneasca a lui Matei Basarab. Pe drumul catre brebu am trecut si pe langa Lacul Doftana, unde am facut un mic popas pentru masa de pranz… Centrul orasului este mai animat, blocuri, banci terase, etc tot ce va asteptati sa gasiti intr-un oras, dar aproape imediat dupa parasirea centrului se face trecerea la o viata mai rurala, cu case si poteci micute intre ele, oameni mai putini si mai multa liniste…

Atractiile turistice ale acestui oras sunt Muzeul N. Grigorescu si Castelul Hasdeu (deasemenea muzeu). Un alt punct de interes il reprezinta Casa Tineretului. Foarte interesant si deasemenea ciudat, este faptul ca pe bulevardul principal al orasului (Bulevardul Carol) asfaltul straluceste in lumina zilei, lasand impresia ca va aflati intr-o mina, trecand pe langa o vena de material pretios.

Cam atat despre Campina si in final va las cu o mica galerie foto…

ENGLISH:

The small town of Cimpina is situated on the Prahova Valley, it has been here ever since the year 1503. Compared with the city rush of Bucharest, Cimpina is a real change of scenery… small buildings, fresh air, very few cars (most of them old Dacia cars).

Because Cimpina railway station is situated outside of the actual town, i managed to take the wrong road, and did a little detour on my atempt to enter the town. I finally managed this by a hidden trekking trail that linked the town with the national road. I was already excited from the opportunity to go on a tiny hiking trail… The town is small enough and can be easely visited in half a day, and since i had a whole day planned here, i decided to extend my travel to the village of Brebu, where i saw the old royal residence of Matei Basarab. On my way to Brebu i took a pause at the Doftana lake where i had a quick snack too.
The center of the town is more animated than the outskirts, bigger buildings, banks, pubs, etc. all that you expect to find in an average city, but almost imediatly upon leaving this area, the transformation from town to a rural setting is very sudden. Small houses, paths (not streets) running between them, less people, and much more quiet…

The touristic attractions of this town are the N. Grigorescu memorial house and the Hasdeu Castle (also a museum). Another point of interest is the „House of the youth”. Very interesting and also very weird is the fact that, the main avenue of the town (Carol Boulevard), the pavement glitters in the day light, leaving the impresion you are in a mine, running along a vein of pretious metal.

That’s about it for Cimpina, and i will now leve you with a small photo gallery…
