Haymaking, Transylvania

Photograph by Rena Effendi, National Geographic

A family from Breb, Romania, puts finishing touches on one of the 40 haystacks it makes each summer. Traditional haymaking culture survives in Transylvania, a plateau region surrounded by mountains, in part because of the people's deep attachment to rural ways of life that have their origins in the Middle Ages.
