Frumusani is a commune located in the proximity of Bucharest, 15 kilometers to the southeast on the National Road to Oltenița (DN4), just after Popești-Leordeni. It is composed of six villages: Frumușani, Orăşti, Pasărea, Pădurişu, Piţigaia and Postăvari.

The access is quite easy, because of a good quality National Road and the Bucharest belt nearby and the traffic is not crowded. The landscape is quite picturesque, thanks to an imposing forest and lakes.

Field in Pădurişu village

The zone was not so developed in the past like the neighbor villages within the same area and comparable distance from Bucharest (Glina, Brăneşti, Berceni, Jilava), due to its belonging to Călăraşi County, quite a poor one. Lately important investments appeared in this area. Tnuva milk factory started its activity in 2006 and several real-estate residences are in developing process (Allegria).
