Romania, circa 1972. The Sphinx Rock. 🕵🏻♀️(found and abridged from touristinromania.net): "The Romanian Sphinx is a rock formation in the Bucegi Mountains (South East Romania), in the Carpathians . It lies on a mountain plateau, 2,216 meters high.
As local legend goes, this rock could represent a supreme God that was worshiped in ancient times by the Dacians. There are also stories that this so-called Sphinx of Romania was actually an energetic center used by ancient aliens. This mystical aura is really appealing to people who are passionate about the occult and paranormal science. It’s common to see groups of people near the Sphinx of Romania holding hands in circle and trying to feel the energy of this place. Some even say that in this point there is a very important chakra of the Earth." #romania#stampcollection#postagestamp#philategram#philately#bucegimountains#sphinxrock#ancientstuff

It is a piece of home painted on a person who, at first, I seem to have nothing in common with ... #dontjudgeabookbyitscover#tattoo#ink#vladtepes#dracula#romania
Romania, circa 1972. Excavated coliseum, Sarmisegetuza. "Colonia Ulpia Traiana Augusta Dacica Sarmizegetusa was the capital and the largest city of Roman Dacia, later named Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa after the former Dacian capital, located some 40 km away. Built on the ground of a camp of the Fifth Macedonian Legion, the city was settled by veterans of the Dacian wars. From the very beginning it received the title of colonia and the status of ius Italicum." #stampcollection#romania#philately#philategram#sarmisegetuza#coliseum#postagestamp#thoseancientromans
