The role and place in Europe of Wallachian traditional peasant culture

Vallachian civilization show striking similarities across the Carpathians in terms of ethnography, folklore and rural economy and it has a common part of the vocabulary, kept both in dialectal archaism and in the mountain toponymy.

Everywhere, symbols carved in wooden objects are similar. Basically, if we except the appearance of wooden log houses, the interior of the houses is often identical in all mentioned regions. This may be the evidence that groups of Vlachs were originally one people.

The Valachs maintained a greater degree of self determination expressed by different judicial customs called Valachian Right (in Latin, the Lex Antiqua Valachorum or Jus Valahicum / Valachorum), known as the first law model as being mentioned a lot in the Romanian historical documents.

By his mainly pastoral and trade activity, the Valah lerned primarily from the nature the principles of living in perfect symbiosis with it, life principles applied in green tourism – a basic concept promoted by our organization in Romania and Europe.

The Vlach Holliday village – “The Vallachian Firepit” is a tourism model that gather around an ancient “firepit” all these principles and who aims to facilitate access to authentic traditional Vallachian culture of all those who want to know and live the healthy lifestyles, the millenary traditions, customs and hospitality of the Vlachs.

In the specific rural Vlachs settlements you can always find clean air and clear water springs that come from the Carpathian Mountains. They were for centuries the keepers of the Vallachian material and spiritual heritage , which have taken over and integrated elements of local culture, created, invented and permanently adapted to historical socio-economic conditions.
