Romanians can teach a thing or two

Transylvania“The Transylvanian landscape looks something like Shropshire, with more woods and no hedges. Centuries-old trees stand in the meadows, giving shade to cattle in the fierce summer heats. The beechwoods are reminiscent of Sussex; only with hardly anybody about and no sign of human habitation for miles.


At a time when Britain is letting in large numbers of migrant workers from Romania, Prince Charles is leading a small counter-migration: of well-heeled Northern Europeans who delight in species-rich meadows and rickety farmhouses (which, incidentally, can still be bought for a song).

‘It’s the last corner of Europe where you see true sustainability and complete resilience,’ says the Prince. ‘There’s so much we can learn from it before it’s too late.'”
