Esechioi is a village in Dobrogea, Romania at the border with Bulgaria. It was a Turkish village but now only the name remained Turkish. In 2002, there were around 320 but now there are less than 200 and more and more houses are ruins after the old people died.This is an article I found on internet about Esechioi.
My aunt was born and raised in Esechioi and I get the chance to go there pretty often. First photo is the family's house, where only her mother lives there now. These photos are from December 2011.
