Saharna – Țiglău
The story of Saharna-Tiglau Resort and its cottages began several years ago when Victor Lupascu the owner and host, discovered the place by chance when hiking in the area. He was impressed by the natural landscapes and dramatic views over the Dniester River from a height of 90-100 meters. Then, he was intrigued by the discovery of some old early 20th century mines dug underground by hand. And finally, Victor was impressed by the rich history and cultural heritage of the territory with archeological excavations discovering traces of a prehistoric Iron Age settlement dating back to the 10-9th century BC.

AU Gust Festival
The 6th edition of the Au Gust Festival focuses on our fruits. Methodologically, ‘Fruits’ is a harvesting process. In a broader sense, fruit reflects human development and the importance of harvesting the benefits of our actions in society.
“Harvesting” is like a choreography of nature, in which different actions repeat in a continuous cycle. Choosing the right time to harvest is essential. If we harvest too early, the fruit will be green; if we wait too long, it will be spoilt. In addition to the harvesting aspect, the concept of “Harvesting” implies harmonious collaboration, sharing and concern for all members of the community. In this issue we open a discussion about the harvesting process in society, caught between tradition and evolution. We will build new models of sustainability and collective sharing practices.
