Short description

Kováts Photography Studio is one of the oldest photography studios still around and functioning in Europe. They use the original backdrops and cameras, all over 100-years-old and also offer a photoshoot in typical Szekler folk costume. Here you can  time travel as you immerse yourself in old past times displayed on the photographs exhibited in the studio (the family owns more than 80 thousands of negatives taken in the surroundings of Odorheiu Secuiesc in the last 130 years), learn about the history of photography technology, go into the darkroom and understand the processes of manual photo development and retouching. Price includes a tour of the photography studio and a traditional Szekler photoshoot, which is a perfect souvenir from your Escape to the Eastern Carpathians and Transylvania.
