   At the feet of the Piatra Craiului mountains, stretching along the uppermost levels of the Bran platform (1200-1300 m), there is one of the highest settlement in the Romanian Carpathians, the village Fundata. The Bran villages - Fundata, Fundatica, Sirnea, Pestera, Magura, Moeciu de Sus, Moeciu de Jos, Predelut, Simon, Poarta - represent the very expression of the rising of the human setting in the Carpathians, for the better use of the rich natural resources offered by the mountainous area.
   Even if the tourist activity has conquered this area lately and it has begun to govern the inhabitants' activity, people still continue their ancient occupations: shepherding, woodcutting, wood processing, making the well-known "bagged cheese", weaving and Easter eggs painting.
