Situated between Bucegi and Piatra Craiului mountains, in Rucăr-Bran Pass, at an altitude between 800 and 1200 m, Moieciu is one of the three commune that make up the Bran area. The Rucăr-Bran Pass is one of the oldest communication routes on Romanian territory, known even before the occupation of Dacia by the Romans in 106 AD. In the Middle Ages was the main link road between Wallachia and Transylvania, through the Carpathian Mountains.
After the occupation of Transylvania by Hungarian royalty, was build the Bran Castle, as an advanced defense point. The six villages that today make up the Moieciu commune were part of the Bran domain, being under the jurisdiction of the Bran castellan. Until not long ago, the mountain agriculture was the main occupation of the inhabitants, the main focus being on livestock. In recent years, the agritourism experienced an unprecedented development, Moieciu becoming one of the most popular tourist areas in Romania.
