Hétfalu (Hungarian) map

Known as the “Severn villages” in Hungarian (although four are now combined to form the village of Săcele). This mixed ethnicity collection of villages has a history as part of the Saxon region of Brașov, and as free peasants outside the feudal systems. The Hungarian interest is in the so called “Csango” inhabitants who speak the Székely dialect of Hungarian, the Romanian interest is in the mocani shepherds who practiced transhumance shepherding.
