Event description
Do you want to test your adventurous spirit, experience both the city (night)life and peaceful Romanian nature? Then our Green TSU is the right choice.

Be a part of the green generation and explore historic places, the virgin forests of the “Carpathian garden”, entering the Romanian wilderness, the mud volcanoes, the exciting living fires of Buzau and much more. AEGEE-Bucuresti along with AEGEE-Ploiesti is happy to welcome the eco-enthusiasts and adventure lovers.

We will set out on our journey from the restless Bucharest, one of the most exciting and diverse cities in Europe and we’ll get deeper into the Romanian nature when we reach the historically rich Brasov.

Located almost in the center of the country and surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains, Braşov provides a mix of wonderful mountain and medieval history with German influences in the old town. The city boasts everything from dynamic modern city life to old world charm and fascinating scenery.

Bran, Sinaia and Fărăraş are located near Braşov and have important attraction points like Dracula Castle, Fagaras Fortress, the Reformed Church, Peleş Castle, Pelişor Castle and Sinaia Monastery.

Buzău and the surrounding areas offer an unique landscapes of Siriu Lake and Lake of Vultures. The city is also knows for his wine, Tamaioasa de Pietroasele who won several Gold Medals in the International Wine Contests, but also for his unique traditional products, such as Plescoi sausages.

Ploieşti was one of the world's leading oil extraction and refinery sites. In fact, the world's first large refinery was opened in this city. Near Ploieşti, we will find Slănic, best known as a spa town with salt lakes, salt mine and beaches near bath complex.
