Horezu Trip – Craiova Regional Integration Center

On Saturday, October 6th, the beneficiaries of the Regional Integration Center in Craiova visited Horezu, Vâlcea County. The familiarity with Romanian customs and traditions for foreign citizens is an important aspect for their integration in Romania. The visit to Horezu meant getting familiar with the specific Romanian artisan activities in the area, by visiting a traditional craftsman who presented to the beneficiaries the secret of pottery and the significance of the decorative elements (cock, fish, leaves, flowers, peacock and wheat ear).


The beneficiaries had the opportunity to visit two monasteries in the area and a workshop of traditional fabrics where the raw material is the silk obtained from the silkworms.
