I have found few of the 79 tablets.
You can view the full gallery very easy but scrolling through the photos at the following link:
In the city Tărtăria, Alba County, in 1961 was discovered an important religious complex; the material showed a continuity of habitation for several thousand years. Among others, they found three sensational clay tablets, which according to the isotope carbon 14 dating were made at least 6,500 years ago. Two of the plates are covered with pictographic writing, over a millennium older than the famous Sumerian clay tablets. At first, the scientists thought the tablets are fakes. But the isotope Carbon 14 dating has proven that these objects are at least 6,500 years old. Moreover, in Bulgaria has also been found a 5,500 year old clay pot, which is covered with the same type of writing/depictions. One thing is sure: the writing found on the “Tărtăria tablets” is the first writing in the world, which we know of. Unfortunately, the signs have remained indecipherable until this day.
"Archaeologists from the Museum of Buzau county, in cave dwellings in the Buzau Mountains, found a giant stone inscribed with signs belonging to an unknown civilization. The stone was called a significant find; it is in the form of a mushroom and is located at Brotari, a common Colt settlement, instead of another famous cave, cave Aghaton containing symbols from the Bronze Age till the early Christian period at the bottom.
Buzau County Museum Director, Doina Ciobanu, said "Absolutely strange signs in the shape of a triangle, star and square, certainly made by a human being, not found in any known writing to this point." Archaeologists buried the stone to prevent it being destroyed by tourists or other sensational amateurs. The writing will be presented in September to historians from around the world on the occasion of the International Symposium Sinferopol, Crimea, Buzau where historians are invited.

Paranormal enthusiasts call the "Bermuda Triangle of Oltenia. " Things happened here over time is at least odd: even deaths of cattle in their herd eyes, the eyes of shepherds and sheep at a wedding feast, when food and drink volatilized on the table making some wedding guest crazy...
I have had in thirty years ago when I was a teenager, three paranormal experiences in Hoia-Baciu Forest. When driving to a friends house who lived in the forest Baciu sheepfold. At one point we stopped on the crest the hill to watch the city. It had already night. At one point appears as a bright light suddenly, like a fire road, facing the city, which curve continuously. I ran to the woods to find the source of the lights, but it is away from us as we approached. Eventually disappeared, actually. The second experience was all through that period, one night when I was in the woods with a friend, Jeno. At one time it lit the whole forest that day, the sheepfold by power lines, the level of 1.70 to 1.80 meters. Raise their hands and some disappear into the darkness. Then, the situation has reversed. Top and bottom was lit remained in darkness. I have never come to an explanation related to this event. Third paranormal experience: I was in the courtyard of his father’s house, the Grigorescu neighborhood, near the forest Hoia. At one point there was a ball, rather than as two golf balls, floating through the air. It seemed like jelly, but not shaking. Down the hill, coming from Hoia at a constant height from the ground. I tried to hit with a bat, but avoided, as a being. Eventually passed the neighbors fence and I lost sight of… Hoia Baciu Forest by kaotic.ro
November 08, 2010 - The Hoia-Baciu Forest is located near Cluj-Napoca, Romania and is locally referred to as the Bermuda Triangle of Romania. The Hoia-Baciu Forest was named after a baci that disappeared in the forest with a flock of two hundred sheep. In the Romanian language a baci is a leader of a shepherd community. The search for this man went on for days and spanned out across several counties, but they found no trace of the man or his sheep
Most of the locals are genuinely afraid to enter or come near the Hoia-Baciu Forest. They believe that most people to enter the forest never return. Those that have been fortunate to return from their visit into the forest have claimed to have suffered from various illnesses as a result of entering the forest. Many of the complaints include rashes, nausea and vomiting, migraines, burns, scratches, anxiety, and other strange bodily sensations.They have also witness several strange unexplained events which occur within the forest. The most common unexplained activity includes seeing mysterious orb-like lights, female voices, giggling, apparitions, and cases of people being scratched.
The orb-like lights have been seen within the tree line. Some can be seen at ground level, yet others are up at the top of the tree line. When using a thermal, these lights don’t seem to be producing any heat signatures. Some accounts have talked about lights that shoot straight up in the sky from the forest.
Hoia-Baciu Forest - This forest, sometimes called the "Bermuda Triangle of Romania," is located in the middle of Transylvania. It was called Baciu Forest after a shepherd (the chief of a given shepherd camp is called "baci" in Romanian) disappeared inside the forest with his 200 or more sheep. He was searched for everywhere, including in nearby counties, but nobody knew where he was or saw him after he entered the forest. In addition, further disappearances, as well strange sensations of sudden illness, headaches, dread, or other odd sensations has been reported by some visitors. Sometimes mysterious lights and orbs have been observed amongst the trees as well.
I tried to go inside the forest for some more photos and I did, but just about 10 meters deeper. I tried to capture some strange mushrooms, I took about ten shots but I couldn't focus. All the time I was looking around and backwards to be sure that I still can see the people in the cleaning. I, myself couldn't understand why am I so afraid in the middle of the day. Finally I had to come out of the forest.
It often happens to some of us that we hear strange and scary stories our whole lives about something. So scary stories that you shut them out of your mind. I can swear that I've totally forgotten all stories when I began my trip. Back home, it took me a week to think about it and to find the answer for being so scared to go deeper in the forest. There is no answer, now I remember. It happens to each and every human, entering the Hoia-Baciu forest.
From ancient times, villagers found themselves assaulted by unexplained feelings of nausea, anxiety, feelings of vomiting, headache and even skin burns occurred to all who have stepped in the forest.. They don't like to talk about these things but they advice everyone not to go there.
The Hoia forest is connected with the Baciu forest, mentioned as Hoia-Baciu forest but also as the "Bermuda Triangle of Romania". The forest is considered one of the most active spot in the world regarding apparitions and various unexplained phenomena like light observations of various shapes and colors, strange shadows, voices and human faces.
Esoteric specialists from around the world, teams of famous scientists from Germany, France, the United States and Hungary managed to capture on film immaterial or material structures and forms appearing in front of curious, whether it was night or noon. Some are seen with the naked eye and some only on photos or videos.
I hope I didn't scare you too, with my story.
Once inside Hoia Baciu forest or even travelling near the forest's edge, you have the feeling of being watched behind every tree, a sensation of unexplained anxiety. That's the first thing that happens to everyone and happened to me too.
Dr. Adrian Patrut, president of the Romanian Society of Parapsychology , has been studying occurrences in the forest since the early seventies. He has devoted a good part of his life studying and investigating the paranormal phenomenology of forest.
I would never, ever doubt that these things are really happening but I could accept explanations only from scientists, not ghost hunters. They have no explanation anyway.
Here is the video with "Destination Truth" team's adventures: Note: Video blocked in USA due to NBC copy right claims
It's show time above the Hoia forest. It's sunset and storm just started.
Almost each storm is a spectacular show of color or most often of lightning, especially at night.
As I mentioned in my previous post, the Hoia-Baciu forest is considered one of the most active spots in the world regarding apparitions and various unexplained phenomena like light observations of various shapes and colors, strange shadows, voices and human faces.
Look at the next photo, there is a shiny spot in the black circle. Is it just a raindrop on my lens? I took the photos in a continuous sequence, if it is a raindrop, it must be on the same spot at the next photo too.
Banatean 'Sphinx' in the Cerna Valley, Topleţ, Romania
A mysterious megalith, forgotten by all!
Can this be the result of the vagaries of weather? It's doubtful, given the perfection of form. Viewed from one angle, we conclude that we are dealing with an anthropomorphic representation. It's hard to imagine that the wind and rain have tried to sculpture a rock to represent a human head. And not just any head. But a majestic, mysterious, emitting a power and authority to obtain and hard by a talented sculptor.
From the train station at Herculane, go on the European road DN 70 to Orsova where we get to the second concrete bridge over the river Cerna. At the end of the bridge, we find a country road (ponds, and pits full of garbage), people passing near the gardens. Take the road... about 3 km and reach the 'Sphinx'.

We learn about the first research done in Bucegi, since 1927, specifically in the eastern part of the massif, Ialomita Valley, in an area known as the "seven springs. "
Bucegi Natural Park, with an area of 32.663 ha is under the jurisdiction of three Counties: Prahova, Dambovita and Brasov, most of the area belonging to Dambovita County. One of the most important attractions is Ialomita’s Cave placed at about 32-36 km from the cross road (from S turn left in Moroieni village at the Sanatorium, from N turn right to Paduchiosul). Both roads meet and follow their way through north, alongside Bolboci Lake and Tatarului Gorges to the monastic complex Peştera. Ialomita's Cave (1600m) is at few km from the well-known Babele Peak (2200m). The Ialomita River flows down through the Ialomita valley. Its spring is in the Bucegi Mountains, at the foot of Mountain Omu. The entrance to Ialomita Cave opens near the spring.
Remarkable are also the spas in the Southern Carpathians, such as Calimanesti-Caciulata, Baile Olanesti in the Olt Valley, Baile Govora and Voineasa near it, or the Baile Herculane spa on the western side of the Mehedinti Mountains, a thermal water spa known since Roman times.

All-season resort of national importance, with sulphurous, chloride, slightly iodinated,
brominated, sodic, calcic, magnesia mineral waters of various concentrations
(oligomineral, hypotonic, isotonic, hypertonic) known from the 18th century. The first
chemical tests of these mineral waters were made back in 1830. In 1873 these
mineral waters got the gold medal at the International Exhibition in Vienna. The
mineral waters of the over 30 springs at Baile Olanesti are recommended in internal
cure for the treatment of chronic diseases of the kidneys and urinary system (kidney
lithiasis, chronic pyelonephritis, chronic glomerulonephritis), of the alimentary canal
(hypoacid gastritis, biliary dyskinesis, chronic cholecystitis, chronic hepatitis, etc.),
metabolic and nutrition disorders (diabetes melitus, obesity, etc.), respiratory

With a population of 1,728, it is the smallest town in Romania by population. It is located at an altitude of 650 metres in the southern reaches of the Ciuc depression, between the Harghita and Bodoc mountains, in the valley of the Olt, and is to this day an important spa town. The village of Carpitus/Kárpitus is administratively part of the town.
The town and the surrounding area are famous for their spas and mineral waters received from seven springs. Nearby is the Lake Sfânta Ana (Szent Anna-tó), a famous volcanic crater lake, the only one of its kind in Romania. It is not only an important touristic site but is of cultural importance in the Székely Land, too.
The water has long been used for bathing by the Székely people. The most probable date for the founding of the bathing station is 1842. It was an alleged miraculous healing of the son of a shepherd from his rashes that first attracted widespread attention to the therapeutic properties of local mineral waters, after which a company was founded to develop the springs in 1845. The bathing station was destroyed in the skirmishes of 1849, but Austrian Emperor Franz Joseph, on visiting the town in 1852, ordered the reconstruction of the baths.
