Minister of the Environment, Water and Forests Barna Tanczos, in Bradetelu, on Sunday, at the start of the seventh stage of the first run organised on the Via Transilvanica route, said that this route represents one of the most daring and beautiful initiatives in Romania, according to Agerpres.
„Via Transilvanica is one of the most daring and beautiful initiatives in Romania, it deserves all the support. A few weeks ago (…) I promised that I would personally join this initiative, running on a much shorter section than the one covered by Tibi Useriu. But I want to experience myself and see what this superb route through the Carpathian Mountains means. I hope I will get well to the finish line and see you at Campu Cetatii,” Minister Tanczos Barna told the press.
The minister believes that this initiative needs maximum visibility because he is convinced that not only those from Romania will travel these superb routes.
The start of the sports event was given on September 12, in Putna, and it is scheduled to end on October 6, in Drobeta Turnu-Severin, after covering a distance of approximately 1,400 kilometers.
The Via Transilvanica project of the Tasuleasa Social Association aims to mark and arrange a tourist and pilgrimage route along the length of 1,400 kilometers. The route can be completed in its entirety or in stages, on foot, on horseback or by bicycle, and the initiators want this thematic road to highlight the cultural, historical and natural wealth and support the development of local communities.
