All about the trip
It is said Rimetea is the place where the Sun rises twice. The village lays at the base of Piatra Secuiului (Rock of the Szeklers), a gigantic natural rock wall, on top of which you will witness one of the most beautiful sceneries around.
This cozy village was famous mainly for its mining industry in the past. In ancient times, the iron used to be mined from the hills guarding Rimetea in the west. Thanks to the wonderful landscape the village is visited yearly by thousands of people.
Silent and unchanging, just as a stoic giant, the Rock of the Szeklers (Piatra Secuiului) stands just outside the village of Rimetea, guarding it from the east. This natural fortress wall, 600 meters tall, is said to have helped the villagers defend themselves against a Tatar barbarian invasion, in the 1300s. Nowadays, from its peak spreads one of the most relaxing, dream-like, and unforgettable views you can witness.
Half-way to the top lies the Students' Cave, an interesting grotto, dug by wind and rain into the wall. Just like a giant-sized door, heading to some secret place inside, this cave has three entrances and a breathtaking view of the two villages: Colţeşti and Rimetea. The Fortress of Colţeşti is also a must-see of the region. It was built in the 1400s, by the Toroczkai, a noble Transylvanian family. The fortress ruins bear witness to centuries of conflict and stories of bravery and rebellion. It is one of the best places to witness double-sunrise.What Wikipedia Says
