Csókás-Veczer



 

How to get here

Going from the town of Sfântu Gheorghe to the village of Araci, we turn left right in the village centre. Before leaving the village we turn left again and follow a cart-road where we get to the village of Ariesd (4,5 km). We do not enter the village but right before it we turn left again and climb the hillside on foot. There is no notice board displayed but as we arrive to the top of the hill we can have an idea about the extension of the nature reserve.

Description of the area

21 km south-west from the town of Sfântu Gheorghe there is a plane along the river Olt. At the border of this plane there is a nature reserve of 977 ha, called “Csókás-Veczer”. This area is the southern projection of the Baróti-mountain, delimited by the river Olt.

The 622 m high Veczer-cap offers a great view of the surrounding basins. When the weather is clear, one can see the peaks of the surrounding mountain chains. 

The nature reserve has a flora typical of the steppe-like grasslands: the spring pheasant's eye (Adonis vernalis), the Golden Feather Grass (Stipa pulcherrima), the Dwarf Almond  (Amygdalus nana). This is one of the best preserved steppe-like grasslands in the region.

Some examples of the typical fauna are: the bee-eater (Merops apiaster), the Black Stork (Ciconia nigra), the purple heron (Ardea purpurea), the wild boar (Sus scrofa), the brown bear (Ursus arctos), the fox (Vulpes vulpes), the roe dear (Capreolus capreolus).

The area is an important archaeological site as well. The “Csókás-Veczer’ is a Natura 2000 protected habitat (ROSCI0056).

Natura 2000 is an ecological network of protected areas in the territory of the European Union which are selected according to two directives, the Birds Directive (79/409/EC) and the Habitats Directive (92/43/EC). Accordingly there are two types of Natura 2000 areas: special protection areas for birds (SPAs) and Special Areas of Conservation to be designated for other species, and for habitats (SACs or SCIs). The aim of the network is to protect the biological diversity of Europe. The Natura 2000 areas are usually large territories that are not necessarily incompatible with human activities, but when there is a plan of infrastructural investment or a building plan, it has to be investigated whether the protected species and habitats are affected by the planned investments and destroying these areas should be avoided or the areas have to be replaced. Besides these restrictions, they support the protection and research of the Natura 2000 areas and ecological agriculture. Similar to these initiatives there are the agro ecology funds that can be called not only for Natura 2000 areas but also for the so-called agricultural areas of high nature value. (The largest part of Szeklerland is considered such.)
