About Gradiste Keys Moeciu
Cheile Gradistei ( Gradiste Keys) is situated in between Moeciu de Sus and Moeciu de Jos villages, about 8 km away from Bran. Although short in length, Gradiste Keys impress the visitors thanks to the wild scenery and the steep versants.
Nearby, there is also “La Chisatoare” Waterfall, that was declared a bio-geological reservation, which flows in tiny spouts, while winding through thick moss vegetation. It suddenly finishes and it is replaced by a rocky wall, and the water threads either trickle on the wall or heavily fall off the snag. This a surface cavity phenomenon, unique in this area, favoured by the carbon calcium deposits which take the form of travertine. In wintertime, the waterfall partially freezes, thus forming spectacular ice columns.
