Share This Post

România, o țară plină ⁢de istorie și‍ frumuseți neîncărunțite, ascunde un secret ⁤prețios pentru iubitorii călătoriilor: o multitudine‍ de destinații care pot aduce bucurie și satisfacție în ⁢inimile exploratorilor curajoși. De la vestigiile impresionante ale Romei ​și⁣ Bizanțului, ‌la peisajele​ spectaculoase ⁤ale‌ Carpaților‌ și la‍ pitorescul litoral al Mării ⁤Negre, România oferă o experiență unică și memorabilă pentru toți ​cei care își doresc să ⁢se îndrepte către necunoscut și să exploreze frumusețile ⁢țării noastre. Bucurați-vă alături de⁢ noi ‌într-o călătorie inedită prin România și‍ descoperiți împreună‍ cu noi bucuria⁤ de a călători în această țară mirifică.

I.⁤ Descoperind splendoarea peisajelor ‍naturale din România

În călătoriile noastre prin ​România, descoperim o mulțime‍ de peisaje‌ naturale uluitoare care ne încântă‍ simțurile ⁤și ne umplu sufletul de bucuria călătoriei. ‌De la munții măreției Carpate, ‌acoperiți de⁣ păduri⁢ dese ‌și văi pitorești, până ⁣la ‍litoralul Mării Negre cu dunele ⁤nesfârșite și⁤ apusurile spectaculoase, România ⁤ne⁤ întâmpină cu ⁣o ​diversitate remarcabilă a frumuseților⁣ naturale.

De-a lungul traseelor noastre ⁣prin țară, ⁢ajungem să explorăm Cheile Bicazului, un paradis​ al‍ stâncilor impresionante sculptate de​ râul ⁤Bicaz, ‍care⁣ creează un peisaj de ​basm. Apoi, ne îndreptăm spre⁢ Delta ‍Dunării, unde⁢ pătrundem ​în lumea ⁣fascinantă ⁤a mai multor ⁢ecosisteme, admirând⁤ zecile de specii de păsări ‌și vegetație luxuriantă cu aspect ⁢exotic.

  • Ce ‍să‌ nu ratezi:
  • Explorarea Pietrei Craiului ⁢și a⁤ munților Făgăraș;
  • Drumul Transfăgărășan, o capodoperă a inženieriei;
  • Excursii ⁢cu ​barca în Delta Dunării și întâlnirea cu⁤ pelicanii;
  • Călătorii în ​timp pe vârfurile Carpaților Orientali, la Cetățile ‍Ponorului și Calului;
  • Plimbări de neuitat prin Ceahlău și Retezat.

Dincolo de⁤ aceste ‍destinații emblematice ale peisajelor naturale, România abundă și ⁣în‍ parcuri ⁤naționale ‍și rezervații, oferind o ⁤varietate ⁢nesfârșită de experiențe ⁤de ​explorare a​ mediului natural. Ne fascinează ‍biodiversitatea și ⁣descoperim cu surprindere păduri întinse, ⁣lacuri cristaline, cascade învolburate și ⁢flora ‍specifică fiecărei regiuni. Fiecare traseu ne poartă într-o călătorie plină​ de‍ magie, învăluindu-ne în atmosfera autentică și pură‌ a naturii sălbatice românești.

II. Explorând orașele și cultura vibrantă a României

Există multe motive pentru ‍care ar trebui să‍ vizitați ‍România, dar printre⁢ cele⁢ mai atractive ⁣sunt⁢ orașele sale vibrante ​și cultura bogată.​ În acest articol, ‍vă vom ghida​ prin câteva dintre cele mai⁣ captivante orașe ale⁣ țării, pentru a ‌vă ajuta să explorați ⁤și să savurați adevărata ​esență​ a României.

În⁤ primul ‍rând, vă sugerăm să începeți ‌călătoria dvs. prin ‍explorarea orașului​ București – ‌capitala vibrantă a României. Aici veți găsi o‌ combinație uluitoare între arhitectura impresionantă din perioada comunistă și ​clădiri elegante⁢ în stil⁤ Belle Époque. Puteți merge pe celebrele ‌bulevarde ale Bucureștiului,​ cum ar fi Calea ⁣Victoriei, ‍unde veți fi fascinați de⁤ palatele regale​ și muzeele pline ‍de istorie. ⁤Nu uitați​ să vizitați Palatul Parlamentului, unul‌ dintre cele mai mari și mai impresionante clădiri din‍ lume.‌ În plus, puteți explora ‌și cartierele boeme, cum ⁣ar fi Lipscani, unde veți ⁢descoperi magazine​ vintage, cafenele și⁢ terase pline ‍de viață.

  • Douăsprezece‍ picioare Beer Bar⁤ – un loc ‌prietenos și plin de ‍viață unde⁤ puteți savura o selecție impresionantă de bere artizanală
  • Caru’ cu Bere – o restaurant⁣ tradițional românesc, cu ‌un ⁢interior ⁢impresionant și mâncare delicioasă
  • Control Club – o destinație iconică pentru ⁣iubitorii ⁢de muzică, aici puteți să dansați⁣ până⁢ dimineața în ritmul celor mai bune⁢ trupe locale ⁤și internaționale

In al doilea rând, vă recomandăm ⁤să explorați ⁣frumusețea culturală a municipiului Cluj-Napoca. Cunoscut ​pentru atmosfera sa‍ cosmopolită și‍ bogatul patrimoniu cultural,​ Cluj-Napoca ​este un magnet pentru​ turiști.⁣ Un ​obiectiv turistic principal este Piața Unirii,​ unde veți găsi faimosul‌ Palat al ⁢Justiției. De asemenea, puteți vizita și Muzeul de ‍Artă ⁣din ​Cluj-Napoca pentru a admira colecțiile de artă românească și⁢ europeană, sau puteți ⁤petrece o după-amiază relaxantă în Parcul Central. Nu uitați să explorați și zona centrală a orașului, unde veți găsi clădiri istorice⁣ și străzi⁤ pietruite pictoresti.

  • O livadă – un ‍restaurant în ⁤aer​ liber⁣ situat într-o grădină fermecătoare, unde ‌puteți savura⁣ mâncăruri tradiționale⁤ românești
  • After⁣ Eight‌ – o cafenea cochetă specializată în ⁣deserturi delicioase și cafea de calitate

O selecție⁣ vastă⁢ de mâncăruri‍ tradiționale precum sarmalele, cârnăciorii de​ Plescoi, ciorba de burtă⁣ sau ‍mâncarea de fasole cu ‍ciolan, te va transporta într-o lume plină de savoare și tradiție. Gusturile⁢ delicioase vor întregi contextul ⁣cultural și te vor invita să descoperi istoria și obiceiurile din ‍fiecare regiune a României.

  • Descoperă ⁢specificul‍ local ‍- ​Fiecare‍ zonă⁣ a ⁢României are bucate specifice care sunt esențiale ⁤în ⁤călătoriile noastre culinare. De ​la brânzeturile delicioase din Maramureș,⁣ până la plăcintele săsești ⁤din Transilvania, fiecare regiune îți oferă oportunitatea‍ de a savura ‌gusturi​ autentice și⁤ de a te ​bucura de gastronomia tradițională ‍a României.
  • Participă la festivaluri culinare ‌- România este cunoscută pentru festivalurile⁤ sale gastronomice, unde poți ‍degusta diverse preparate tradiționale‌ și⁢ te poți bucura de divertisment ‌și atmosfera plină de⁣ viață. Festivalul Cărnii ⁤de Porc de la Mangalita, Festivalul Vinului de la‍ Murfatlar⁢ sau ⁣Festivalul Țuicii ‌de la Vama Veche‍ sunt doar câteva ​exemple ⁣unde poți experimenta adevărata experiență a bucătăriei românești într-un mod autentic și ⁤distractiv.

How guest reviews work

Each review score is between 1 and 10. To get the overall score, we add up all the review scores and divide that total by the number of review scores we received. Guests can also give separate subscores in crucial areas, such as location, cleanliness, staff, comfort, facilities, value, and free WiFi. Guests submit their subscores and their overall scores independently – there’s no direct link between them.

You can review an accommodation that you booked through our platform if you stayed there, or if you got to the property but didn’t actually stay there. To edit a review you’ve already submitted, contact our Customer Service team.

We have people and automated systems that specialize in detecting fake reviews submitted to our platform. If we find any, we delete them and, if necessary, take action against whoever is responsible.

Anyone who spots something suspicious can always report it to our Customer Service team so that our fraud team can investigate.

Ideally, we'd publish every review we get, positive and negative. However, we won’t display any reviews that include or refer to (among other things):

  • Politically sensitive comments
  • Promotional content
  • Illegal activities
  • Personal or sensitive info (e.g. emails, phone numbers, credit card info)
  • Swear words, sexual references, hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, or references to violence
  • Spam and fake content
  • Animal cruelty
  • Impersonation (i.e. if the writer is claiming to be someone else)
  • Any violation of our review guidelines.

To make sure reviews are relevant, we may only accept reviews that are submitted within 3 months of checking out. We may stop showing reviews once they’re 36 months old, or if the accommodation has a change of ownership.

An accommodation can reply to a review.

When you see multiple reviews, the most recent ones will be at the top, subject to a few other factors (e.g. language, whether it’s just a rating or contains comments as well, etc.). You can sort and/or filter them by time of year, review score, and more.

Sometimes we show external review scores from other well-known travel websites, but make it clear when we do this.

Guidelines and Standards for Reviews

These guidelines and standards aim to keep the content on Booking.com relevant and family-friendly, without limiting expression or strong opinions. They're also applicable regardless of the comment's tone.

Contributions should be travel related. The most helpful contributions are detailed and help others make better decisions. Please don’t include personal, political, ethical, or religious commentary. Promotional content will be removed and issues concerning Booking.com’s services should be routed to our Customer Service or Accommodation Service teams.

Contributions should be appropriate for a global audience. Please avoid using profanity or attempts to approximate profanity with creative spelling, in any language. Comments and media that include hate speech, discriminatory remarks, threats, sexually explicit remarks, violence, or the promotion of illegal activity are not permitted.

All content should be genuine and unique to the guest. Reviews are most valuable when they are original and unbiased. Your contribution should be yours. Booking.com property partners should not post on behalf of guests or offer incentives in exchange for reviews. Attempts to bring down the rating of a competitor by submitting a negative review will not be tolerated.

Respect the privacy of others. Booking.com will make an effort to obscure email addresses, telephone numbers, website addresses, social media accounts, and other similar details.

The opinions expressed in contributions are those of Booking.com customers and properties, and not of Booking.com. Booking.com does not accept responsibility or liability for any reviews or responses. Booking.com is a distributor (without any obligation to verify) and not a publisher of these comments and responses.

By default, reviews are sorted based on the date of the review and on additional criteria to display the most relevant reviews, including but not limited to: your language, reviews with text, and non-anonymous reviews. Additional sorting options might be available (by type of traveler, by score, etc...).

12 Reasons Why You Should Visit Romania

  • July 25, 2023

Romania is actually a hidden gem in Eastern Europe and a highly recommended travel destination to visit. It’s easy to get to, inexpensive, fascinating, and beautiful. And believe it or not, it’s also a great place for Romanian Jewish heritage tours.

Trips to Romania go far beyond the story of the Jews in Romania. The country offers a captivating blend of breathtaking castles, rich Jewish history, delightful cuisine, vibrant nightlife, and stunning natural wonders.

The cities in Romania are beautiful, all with their own history and influences from Hungarian to German. The history is at times terrifying, including Vlad the Impaler, and at other times inspiring. 

With its fascinating history, Jewish culture, vibrant traditions, and a plethora of UNESCO World Heritage sites, Romania invites travelers to embark on an unforgettable adventure. 

Is Romania friendly to tourists?

Romania is very friendly to tourists and has many activities that make trips to Romania unforgettable. However, traveling is sometimes unpredictable. It can be helpful to hire a travel company that is familiar with the country and knows what will be open and which cities are most important to go to. 

Do they speak English in Romania?

While the language in Romania is Romanian, most locals speak English. It is very easy to get around the country with only English, and many locals are happy to speak to English speakers.

If you are not hucked by now this blog post, will explore the 12 most compelling reasons why Romania should be in your sights as your next trip (or maybe the next one :)).

You can visit Romania for the breathtaking castles

Romania is renowned for its enchanting castles that seem to have emerged straight out of fairy tales. From the iconic Bran Castle, often associated with the legend of Count Dracula, to the magnificent Peleș Castle with its Neo-Renaissance architecture, these architectural masterpieces will transport you to a bygone era.

If you’re having trouble choosing castles, Bran is one of the classics. It’s built on a 200-foot rock and is the most visited castle in the country. It’s a bit crowded, though, so other castles might be better if you want to skip the touristy spots.  

Peles Castle is near the beautiful town of Sinaia, so on a road trip around Romania, it is likely an easy stop. It’s built in a German new-Renaissance style and looks like it comes straight out of a fairy tale. It was the first castle in Europe to be entirely lit by electricity. 

Corvin Castle is another crowd favorite. It’s huge and a trip there feels straight out of Game of Thrones. It’s gothic-style and is one of the largest medieval castles in Europe. Of all the castles in Romania, this one is the most memorable and should be a top priority if you visit Romania. 

Jews of Romania have a long and storied history

Romania’s Jewish community has a rich and storied heritage. From the historic synagogues and Jewish quarters in cities like Bucharest and Cluj-Napoca to the moving Holocaust Memorial în Maramureș, exploring Jewish culture in Romania is a deeply meaningful experience.

Today, Bucharest, the capital, is home to around 5,000 Jews, while smaller Jewish communities can be found in various towns across Moldavia-Iasi, Dorohoi, Succeava, Radauti, and Transylvania, including Cluj, Arad, Timișoara, Satu Mare, Târgu Mureș, Oradea, and Baia Mare. 

Jews of Romania can be traced back to Roman times, during the country’s period as the province of Dacia. 

Romania is the birthplace of Yiddish theatre and Bucharest supports a small Yiddish Theatre. In Bucharest, where the Jewish community is more concentrated, there is a Kosher restaurant. 

If you’re looking to look outside of Bucharest for Jewish culture in Romania, one great location in Romania to go to for Jewish heritage is Sighet. There, you can visit the Elie Wiesel Memorial House. Elie Wiesel, a Nobel laureate, and Holocaust survivor, was born in Sighet and spent his childhood there. 

The memorial house is a tribute to his life and works, serving as a museum and educational center dedicated to promoting tolerance and remembrance. Visitors can explore exhibits that chronicle Wiesel’s life, his experiences during the Holocaust, and his literary achievements. Jewish heritage tours to Romania are unforgettable. 

Trips to Romania are a great chance to try interesting food

Romanian cuisine is a delightful fusion of influences from Eastern Europe, the Balkans, and Turkish traditions. Indulge in mouthwatering dishes like Sarmale (cabbage rolls), Mici (grilled minced meat rolls), and Papanasi (traditional Romanian doughnuts). Don’t forget to pair your meal with a glass of Palinka, a local fruit brandy.

One of the highlights of Romanian food is its meat-centric dishes. Mici, a popular street food, features grilled ground meat rolls seasoned with garlic, thyme, and other herbs. Sarmale, cabbage rolls stuffed with a flavorful mix of ground meat, rice, and spices, are a staple on festive occasions. 

Another beloved dish is mămăligă, a cornmeal mush similar to polenta, often served alongside various meat dishes or topped with cheese and sour cream.

Romania also has its fair share of delicious desserts. Papanăși, fluffy fried doughnuts topped with sour cream and jam, are a delightful indulgence. 

You can’t visit Romania without visiting the nightlife hub of Bucharest

Bucharest, the vibrant capital of Romania, boasts a thriving nightlife scene. From trendy clubs and bars to live music venues, the city offers endless entertainment options. Enjoy the energetic atmosphere as you dance the night away or sip cocktails in the hip neighborhoods of Lipscani and Dorobanți.

The Old Town, also known as Lipscani, is the epicenter of Bucharest’s nightlife. This historic district is packed with lively bars, pubs, and clubs, creating a lively atmosphere that attracts locals and tourists alike. 

Trips to Romania aren’t complete without a visit to one of the rooftop bars that offer breathtaking views of the city skyline. 

The Natural Wonders are Beautiful

Romania’s natural beauty is awe-inspiring. From the dramatic Carpathian Mountains and their picturesque hiking trails to the breathtaking Danube Delta, a haven for birdwatchers and nature enthusiasts, Romania’s landscapes will leave you spellbound.

One of the best ways to explore the natural beauty of Romania is through the national parks. Rodna Mountains National Park is home to the majestic Pietrosul Rodnei, the highest peak in the Eastern Carpathians, which stands proudly at an impressive 2,303 meters. There are also glacial lakes, gushing waterfalls, and crystal-clear rivers that add to the park’s natural allure. 

If you’re looking for activities, Rodna Mountains National Park offers exhilarating opportunities for mountaineering, rock climbing, and trekking.

You can also visit Domogled – Valea Cernei National Park. One of the park’s highlights is the stunning Cerna Valley, home to the Cerna River, renowned for its crystal-clear waters.

Trips to Romania are great by car

One of the best ways to visit Romania is on a road trip. Travel along the famous Transfăgărășan Road, winding through the Carpathian Mountains, or explore the scenic beauty of the Transylvanian countryside. The road trip possibilities are endless.

A road trip would take you to the breathtaking Carpathian Mountains, a natural paradise for outdoor enthusiasts. A road trip also gives you the chance to go to some amazing cities like Sibiu and Brasov. 

Sibiu, a European Capital of Culture, showcases a well-preserved medieval center with cobblestone streets, colorful houses, and cozy squares. Brasov, nestled at the foot of the Carpathians, is home to the impressive Black Church and serves as a gateway to the nearby Bran Castle.

Of course, Romania is also great on foot. Check out some of our walking tours in Europe . 

The History is really interesting

Romania’s history is a tapestry of ancient civilizations, medieval kingdoms, and communist rule. Explore the imposing ruins of the Roman Empire at the Histria Archaeological Site, marvel at the fortified churches of Transylvania, and delve into the mysteries of Vlad the Impaler at Poenari Castle. 

Of course, Jewish heritage tours to Romania will also delve into the rich Jewish history of the country. 

It’s a Great Place to Experience Local Festivals and Traditions

Romania’s calendar is filled with vibrant festivals and traditions that offer a glimpse into the country’s cultural richness. Witness the colorful Easter celebrations in Bucovina, experience the lively folklore festivals in Maramureș, or immerse yourself in the traditional customs of the winter holidays.

But what are some interesting festivals you can attend?

  • The Hangariada Air Show and Performing Arts Festival in Iasi combine aerial displays and music performances. Held from May 19 to 21, this festival showcases captivating air shows by military and civilian pilots, alongside breathtaking performances by top Romanian artists. 
  • The Sounds of Oradea – Classical Music Festival takes place in Oradea from June 16 to 18. It is a three-day celebration of classical music, featuring performances by renowned musicians from around the world. 

Romania is Home to Many UNESCO World Heritage Sites

Romania boasts an impressive number of UNESCO World Heritage sites. From the well-preserved medieval towns of Sighișoara and Brașov to the painted monasteries of Bucovina and the unique wooden churches of Maramureș, these sites showcase Romania’s architectural and cultural treasures.

Which UNESCO sites are worth visiting while in Romania?

  • The Historic Center of Sighișoara is a charming medieval town located in Transylvania. It’s the birthplace of Vlad III the Impaler, who inspired Bram Stoker’s famous novel “Dracula.” 
  • The Dacian Fortresses of the Orăștie Mountains are the oldest of Romania’s six cultural UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Dating from the 1st century BC to the 1st century AD, these six fortresses were built by the Dacians to protect themselves from the expanding Roman Empire. 

Interested in exploring more UNESCO World Heritage Sites? Check out our destinations heritage map page.  

Along with Jewish culture, Romania is Home to Rich Folklore

Immerse yourself in Romania’s folklore and discover captivating tales. Most people are familiar with the Dracula story, but there’s plenty more folklore about where that came from. 

One such folkloric figure is the Solomonar. Known as the great sorcerer of storms and winds, the Solomonar possesses immense power over nature. They can control the weather and one of the theories is that the myth descended from the Jewish community in Romania.

The Lower Town of Sibiu

Located in Eastern Europe, Romania is the 9th largest European country by surface with a very rich and diverse geography as you'll soon find out. It ranks 6th by population (approx. 19 mil) composed of 85% Romanians and other ethnic minorities such as Hungarians, Germans, Italian, Turks or rroma.

Romania is a NATO member since 2004 and part of the European Union since 2007. The local time in Romania is Eastern European Time (EET) +02:00 GMT

Our country is made up of 3 historical regions: Wallachia (South), Transylvania (North-West) and Moldova (North-East). The capital of Romania is Bucharest with approx. 2,2 mil. The next major cities are Cluj-Napoca and Iasi, the unofficial capitals of Transylvania and Moldova.

There are many reasons why it's worth visiting Romania. Main attractions and tourist destinations include:

  • lots of famous castles starting with the famous Bran Castle, Corvin Castle or the ex-royal residence Peles Castle built by King Carol I, and 140 more!
  • interesting UNESCO World Heritage sites: the 400-year old Wooden Churches of Maramures, the 500-year old Painted Monasteries of Bucovina, the 700-year old Sighisoara Citadel or the 2,000 year old ruins of Dacian Fortresses
  • incredible nature with great hiking opportunities in the wild Carpathian Mountains which earned our country the title of Europe's last wilderness reserve or relaxation at the sandy beaches of the Black Sea coast
  • eclectic sights mixing communist landmarks such as the huge Palace of Parliament ) with historic sites and medieval cities such as Brasov, Sibiu and Targu Mures in the center of the country
  • unique sights such as the impressive underground Turda Salt Mine , the haunted Hoia Baciu forest or the thrilling Transfagarasan Highway
  • the miracle that is the Danube Delta - 3rd best preserved biosphere in the world and home to over 300 species of birds

  • the famous South-East Transylvania with its main attractions: Saxon villages and fortified churches, castles, medieval towns
  • the traditional Maramures region (upper North-West) with its Wooden Churches and folk costumes
  • the spiritual Bucovina region (upper North-East) with its 500-year-old Painted Churches and egg-painting traditions

If you want an authentic experience of Romanian countryside you'll need at least 2 full days in any of these regions and to travel by car.

Romanian history is like Game of Thrones but without the fantasy part: at the intersection of Ottoman, Austro-Hungarian and Russian (later Soviet) empires, our history is full of twists and turns in the middle ages. We were always caught between the wars, domination and power plays of foreign power (hence the many castles in Romania and historical sites!).

Our history is a testimony of our nation's resilience, cultural identity and goal to unite the three historical regions into one independent state which happened only in 1918.

Castles, Fortresses & Historic Tours

Castles, Fortresses & Historic Tours

As for Romanian culture and people, you'll see Romanians are very friendly and hospitable who love enjoying life, food and socialising. Our Latin blood and cultural affinity for Western Europe lifestyle mixes with a Balkan vibe and Eastern traditional values inspired by our Christian Orthodox religion. The best Romanian movies do a great job of showing this.

Although there are some prejudices and misconceptions about our country and people, those who've visited our country were pleasantly surprised and impressed by what it can offer - and we hope you'll be too! And if you're wondering who are some famous people from Romania - you might be surprised!

Now, on to the practical stuff with things to know and the latest information about visiting Romania:

1. Entry requirements & visa

Entering Romania is quite easy as visa requirements for tourism or short stays under 90 days are relaxed. On the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website you'll find lists of countries for which a visa is or not required.

Besides having a valid passport (or ID if you're from the European Union), for other travel documents needed also check the conditions of entry .

Besides European Union nationals, citizens from the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, Israel, Australia Singapore, don't need a visa when they enter Romania if planning to stay under 90 days. Make sure to double check entry requirements on your own too.

Holders of a Schengen visa with multiple entries (and slots still available and valid!) are not required to apply for a Romanian visa for entry.

You can apply for a visa online on the Ministry's (only) official website .

The Romanian currency is RON or informally called Lei. It comes in plastic, almost indestructible notes of 5, 10, 50, 100, 200 and 500. There are also some smaller-don’t-matter coins.

Although some prices in Romania may be displayed in Euro using Euros for cash payments is NOT accepted and if someone offers you an ‘in-house’ exchange rate - you should check official rates before accepting.

  • 1 Euro is about 5 Lei and 1 USD is about 4,6 Lei - check official exchange rates published by the Romanian National Bank here )

Paying by card is very safe and widespread in Romania in all shops, restaurants, hotels or tourist attractions. But not in taxis, farmers market or artisan fares where you need to have cash. Debit cards issued by VISA, MasterCard and Maestro are widely accepted everywhere, but American Express cards may not always work. If you're using credit cards from a non-EU bank, make sure it's authorised for international payments.

Bucharest street food tour

Bucharest Street Food Tour: Farmers' Markets & Hidden Streets

Start from: University Square

When travelling in the country or in the mountains cash is king so always have Lei with you and plan your budget ahead. Some guesthouses or restaurants in the countryside don't accept card payments, especially credit cards, so ask in advance.

There are plenty of ATMs in Romania (bancomat) to withdraw money from. The most common banks with safe & secure ATMs are BCR, BRD or Banca Transilvania. For fees, check with your local bank. In the countryside or mountainous areas it's harder to find ATMs but every village or small town should have one near the city hall.

What currency to bring when travelling to Romania: Euros, US dollars, UK pounds or Swiss francs are the easiest to convert anywhere. When you arrive don’t use exchange offices located in airports for more than 20 € / $ / £ for taxi fare as they usually have very bad rates aimed at unsuspecting tourists. You'll find lots of exchange bureaus (casa de schimb) in Romania, easily recognisable by their yellow or white street boards indicating rates offered.

  • Pro tip: rates at exchange bureaus are usually better than at banks and 90% of them don't charge any fees

View over Brasov, one of the best preserved medieval towns

Up until 2020, Romania used to be known as a cheap destination but this changed in the last 3 years... why?

The hospitality and tourist sector were strongly affected after two hard years of Covid-19 and a low 2022 caused by the invasion of Ukraine war-scare.

Many guides had to get regular jobs while small operators and guesthouses lowered their value-for-money ratio and/or closed shop. Meanwhile, the 'surviving' businesses and guides raised their prices to keep up with demand and rising costs.

  • We have a network of 50+ guides and partners all over the country, so we witnessed the disaster firsthand while trying to stay alive. Since 2017 our mission has been to support local communities by including their services in our tours. So if you book a tour with us you'll directly help small businesses and people in Romania!

The wider European economic context (energy crisis, inflation) coupled with higher local taxes meant everything got more expensive in Romania by 20-30%.

The good news (ironically!) is prices increased all over Europe - and the world too, since the global economy is not doing great. So on a relative scale Romania is still cheaper to visit compared with most European countries if you plan your holiday well or go off-the-beaten path. Key info:

  • generally, the value-for-money you get in Romania for tourist activities (e.g. guided tours, wine tastings, fine dining, SPA etc) is very good
  • prices in major cities where the main attractions for tourists are ( Bucharest , Cluj-Napoca , Brasov and Sibiu ) or on the Black Sea Coast are higher compared to other ones, but on the flipside they have lots of choices for every budget, so shop around!
  • in small towns and villages, prices for meals and accommodation are on average 20-30% lower

A reasonable budget per day if you're planning to travel to Romania is between 30-60 Euro for accommodation, meals and small expenses. In restaurants a main course is around 25-50 Lei (5-10 Euro), soups around 10-20 Lei (2-4 Euro), soft drinks start from 1,5 Euro while alcohol from 2 Euro. Entrance fees to tourist attractions range between 4-15 Euro

For a better idea of how expensive Romania is, for a 3-day city break in Bucharest or Cluj-Napoca budget around 200 - 350 Euro in total for 2 people (excl. flights and guided tours) with generous meals and drinks included, tickets and local transport. A 7-day guided tour starts from 2,000 Euro per person for 2 people, depending on hotels, activities and itinerary.

Best of Transylvania Tour

3-Day BEST of Transylvania Tour: Brasov, Sighisoara, Bran & Viscri

Start from: Bucharest

Tipping in Romania is very common and usually expected. Service fees or coperto is not included when going out in restaurants (unless expressly mentioned!) and a 7-10% tip on top of the bill is common. If you’re really happy with the service you can go up to 15%.

Tips for small, personal services (body care & cosmetics, hotel concierge, drivers, etc.) are also welcomed. Tipping tour guides is also common on average 10-15% of the tour price. And if the guide doesn't say anything (because they're usually uncomfortable asking!) - just do what feels right to you.

This is Transfagarasan Road one of Romania's top attractions

Romania has been blessed with a rich and diverse geography with lots of natural attractions which makes it one of the most beautiful countries:

  • the Black Sea coast with fine sandy beaches
  • the Danube River creates the Danube Delta with vast waterways and lakes
  • picturesque hills and old-growth forests in Transylvania
  • the wild, impressive Carpathian Mountains (also known as Transylvanian Alps)

Check our selection of hiking tours with licensed guides

Going as high as 2,544m (at Moldoveanu, the highest peak) the Romanian Carpathians and their foothills take up almost 45% of our land surface.

With over 100 peaks over 2.300m altitude, lots of trails for all difficulty levels offering incredible natural landscapes and a wildlife population that earned us the title of Europe's last wilderness reserve - this is a great place for your next hiking holiday. Our article on best hiking trails in Romania will tell you more.

Romania shared hiking tour

7-Day Peaks of Romania [Shared Group Trip]

Start from: Brasov

In terms of natural attractions, besides the many national parks (Piatra Craiului, Bucegi, Apuseni being the most famous), I would also mention the Muddy Volcanoes , the Romanian Sphinx or the 7 stairs canyon.

The simplest and most convenient way to travel to Romania is to fly here. Besides the main airport (Bucharest Otopeni), there are 9 airports in big cities served by low cost airlines (Wizz Air and Ryan Air mostly) with flights to over 100 destinations in Europe. This is because there are close to 4 million Romanians living abroad so there's a lot of commuting. If you plan well and in advance, you can find tickets as cheap as 60 Euro round-trip.

  • Local tip: check our guide on Bucharest airport so you have a 'soft landing' here :)

Besides a Southeastern Europe and Romania road trip, you can also get here using direct trains from Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Sofia or Thessaloniki. We prepared an article on travelling to Romania with additional information on this topic.

Transylvania bike trails

2-Day Transylvania Bike Trails Tour: Viscri & Saxon Villages

Public transport in Romania is a little more challenging. Unfortunately road and railway infrastructure is underdeveloped. There are few highways and mostly one-lane roads which are heavy with traffic (including trucks) so driving 100 km by car can take 2h. And though there are lots of train stations in the whole country, because tracks are old trains go slow (average of 80 km/h). At least they're cheap!

For short distances (>200 km) a car, train or bus is a good choice. For medium or long distances (over 300 km) you should consider breaking your itinerary or catching an internal flight (eg. from Bucharest to Cluj or Timisoara). Visitors to Romania are well advised to have travel insurance before getting here. Our guide on public transportation in Romania will have more info on this.

Romania has a temperate continental climate which used to be codename for standard weather. But in the last 10 years the effects of climate change are starting to show. We wrote a bigger article on the best time to visit Romania describing the weather and with visiting tips for each season.

In short, for sightseeing trips come anytime April - October when the weather is fair, warm and days are longer. Peak season for holidays is 1 Aug - 15 September so if you're planning to travel to Romania then, make sure to book everything in advance!

The best time to go hiking and for outdoor activities in general is from late Spring to mid October but this depends on where you're going. For example, in mountains at altitudes of over 2,000m (eg. Fagaras, Retezat or Bucegi) there can still be snow until late June and weather is unpredictable. High season for hiking is Aug-Sept when there's less rain and fair weather.

Fagaras Mountains

Transfagarasan Road & Hiking Day Trip in Fagaras Mts

For wildlife tours - we follow nature's rhythm. Animals - especially brown bears - are active from late Spring to late Autumn, depending on how warm and cold it is. The best time to visit with the highest chances of seeing wild animals is during Summer, but these trips usually have complex logistics, go into remote areas and are in high demand - so book them in advance!

Start from: Rucar, Arges county

  • Local tip: our personal favorite time to visit Romania is Autumn: starting from early September a superb array of gold, orange and brown will cover the vast Carpathian woodlands

The best time to visit the Danube Delta is April - October when nature at its best: lush vegetation in full bloom, birds nesting or playing around and lots of fish.

Danube Delta tour

4-Day Danube Delta: Birds, Letea Village & Lakes [Group Trip]

Start from: Tulcea

Compared to other countries, the peak holiday season by the Black Sea Coast is shorter, typically from 15 July - 30 August. Winter in Romania is quite cold, but not humid. In mountainous areas there's lots of snowfall, but less so in the plains. The Romanian ski resorts come alive during the winter months of Jan-Feb but you can also take a cable car ride outside the season.

In Romania the emergency number is 112 and an operator will ask if you want to talk to the police, fire or medical services.

There are no particular health concerns you should be aware about. No special insects or food issues around here either. As vegetation is very diverse and rich, those with pollen allergies should be prepared.

As regards medical services most hospitals are public and state-owned so they will take care of any walk-ins or emergencies - and settle insurance matters after. But you still need travel insurance, even if from a foreign issuer, whether you travel to Romania or anywhere else in the world.

Unfortunately healthcare in Romania is severely underdeveloped and understaffed so better lower your expectations of what a hospital should look like and how you should be treated. But medical staff is usually kind and will do their best to help you.

There are plenty of pharmacies in all urban areas and you can easily get the usual over-the-counter pills for colds, aches, indigestions or bruises.

Finally, we highly recommend you have a travel insurance. For citizens of the European Union countries, the European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) which offers health coverage EU-wide is a good option.

Is Romania a safe travel destination? Yes! There are NO terror attacks, violent protests or civil disturbances here. We have very strict firearm regulations - so no crazy people with guns either.

So is Romania safe for travellers? Yup, and even though you may have heard or read scary stories about traveling in the Balkans, just do what you normally do when in 'tourist mode:' don’t look for trouble, beware of pickpockets or suspicious people, ignore drunkards and people pushing their services to tourists (like taxi drivers in North Train Station), be careful at night and don't disrespect people, traditions or clearly stated rules.

This applies to female and solo travelers as well.

Cluj-Napoca food tour

Cluj-Napoca Food Tour: Food Markets, Regional Dishes and Coffee Culture

Start from: Cluj-Napoca

We wrote an extensive article with Romania safety travel advice that will answer everything.

You may have heard stories about the rroma ethnic minority (improperly called gypsy) and how they're usually involved in small thefts, cons and begging. While their reputation might be bad, not all are like that. Most of the time you will see them as beggars, even using their children for money - but don't get fooled and give them anything as you're only perpetuating the cycle and not really helping them.

On our tours in Transylvania we take people to typical Rroma villages to find out about their culture and lifestyle in an authentic way firsthand.

Day tour from Cluj to Sighisoara

joy travel romania

Romania offers lots of accommodation choices for all budgets, requirements or styles. All of them are listed on either Booking.com or AirBnB .

In the most visited cities you'll find a large selection of hostels, hotel rooms and boutique guesthouses. Lots of apart-hotels too. It's best to book them before you travel to Romania as walk-ins are rarely a good idea.

Wine tasting tour in Romania

The Wine Tradition of Romania: Premium Wine Tasting in Dealu Mare

The other tourist cities are not that big so even if you're not staying in the "old town" or "union square" area (usually the city centre and most crowded areas), it will probably be a 5-15 min walk away. Besides walking, I personally like to keep my healthy routines while traveling and found some easy travel workouts to do.

When visiting the traditional tourist regions of Romania (Transylvania, Maramures, Bukovina, Danube Delta) accommodation usually means a family-owned guesthouse offering bed and breakfast in a small village. These are called pensiune or casa - no hotels or restaurants here. Most of them offer a private rooms with en-suite WC and half board we suggest you take it since there are likely few alternatives to eat out. For hiking trips villages at the base of the mountains usually have lots of guesthouses. But sometimes the hiking trails begin a little further away so you'll need a car or guide to get there. When going deeper in the mountains you'll have at most 1-2 choices to stay in, usually mountain cabins or chalets. Romania's hiking infrastructure is not well developed and hut-to-hut hiking is not possible for this reason.

Hiking tour Bucegi

1 or 2 Day Hiking Trip in Bucegi Mountains: Sphinx, Babele, Omu Peak

Start from: Bucharest OR Brasov

Due to their very limited accommodation options and very high demand, we highly recommend you book your hiking trips in advance (min 2-3 weeks).

There are many good reasons to explore the Romanian countryside (the best place for culture trips), and here's another one: to stay in the many charming, authentic or luxury guesthouses. In recent years locals bought and restored old boyar (aristocrat) manors, traditional village houses (like King Charles did in Viscri), built modern eco-luxury villas, or converted large old farmhouses into agro-tourism cottages straight out of a fairy tale. See some inspiration here and make your trip to Romania memorable!

Traditional folk singers in Maramures

Romanian people and society is generally conservative and adheres to traditional values, especially older generations who grew up in the 45 years of Romanian communist regime .

Spending quality family time and having good relationships is important in our society. There are lots of destinations and facilities for this, which is why you should consider a holiday with the kids in Romania .

85% of the population is Christian Orthodox so major religious holidays like Easter or Romanian Christmas are celebrated through public holidays (when all tourist attractions are closed by the way).

Religion plays an important role in our society, especially in rural areas where people dress up and go to church every Sunday. There are lots of historic churches valuable for small communities where priests enjoy great influence. But beyond their religious function, Romanian churches are worth visiting because they are a unique place to discover authentic Romanian culture and folk traditions. Romanians, though being the majority of population in these parts, were historically persecuted (especially in Transylvania) for our faith, language and culture by foreign rulers. So churches were the only safe havens and community spaces Romanians had.

But Millennials and younger generations are very liberal, open-minded, friendly, tech-savvy and influenced by Western lifestyle and values. Most, if not all, young people speak English and are very eager to help foreign visitors have a good time in Romania.

  • Pro tip: Romanians like to complain about politics, the economy and time in traffic, and love talking about sports, Romanian food and where to go when traveling to Romania – so pick any of these topics to start a conversation :)

Go on a brown bear watching tour in Transylvania

As a frequent traveler myself, I spend A LOT of time doing online research to see what are the most popular places to visit and interesting things to do in a new place. I compare tours, prices, check public transportation, read forums, travel blogs, Instagram - the usual!

But this becomes confusing and stressful when planning to visit Romania because of outdated, incomplete or vague info. There's no official travel portal or assistance from Romanian tourist authorities. Tour operators compete on prices on Viator and similar websites - not on value or authentic experiences.

That's why I started this website in 2017 and partnered with the best and friendliest people. We want you to have a great experience and a memorable holiday when you travel to Romania and here's our advice on how to do that:

  • first, read about the major tourist cities , best places to visit and things to do in Romania and make a list with "must see" and "nice to see"
  • second, look at the map of Romania to see where they're located and understand the logistics and limitations of getting around Romania and on Google Maps
  • third, decide the basics like how many days you have for your holiday, what's your budget and what are the best places to start or end your trip
  • fourth, beware that most tourists who travel to Romania underestimate how big the country is and want to do / visit too much in too little time! For example, if you want to visit a traditional region like Maramures or Bucovina where tourist sights are spread in the surrounding areas, you'll need 2-3 days on top of the time needed to get there by car; the same if you want to visit the Danube Delta which can be done only by boat!
  • finally, think about what kind of holiday do you want in Romania? to visit as much as you can and go from one place to another? to go hiking and see wildlife? to experience traditional village life through slow travel (the best way)? Romania has much to offer but because it's quite big and traveling is slow - you can't have it all!

Once you're clear on the above, here's how we can help you:

  • a a do-it-yourself holiday: book places to stay on your own, use public transportation to get around and book day trips from different cities (more time + energy + hassle for you, but cheaper and we can give you a disccount)
  • we prepare a fully guided private trip for you with as much as you want, within your budget, using our best guides, expertise and local connections (a couple of emails/calls with us, no stress for you, and an amazing value-for-money holiday)
  • if you need help deciding or making a plan - we know everything about tourism in Romania and are happy to help - just contact us

Important: because Romania is such an underrated and undiscovered tourist destination, tourist numbers are very low so 90% of tours in Romania are private except for city tours and a few day trips to the main attractions such as Bran Castle, Peles Castle, Sighisoara Citadel or Transfagarasan Road. All our hiking tours are private too because we don't combine people with different hiking experience and fitness level.

In 2024 we run 2 shared, small-group tours with fixed departures in the Summer so check them out:

Romania shared group tour

8-Day Exclusive Romanian Experience [Shared Group]

Romania is very popular thanks to Count Dracula touristy stories surrounding the famous Bran Castle known by its touristy name Dracula's Castle.

But there's so much more to do here other than visiting Bran Castle thanks to a fictional Hollywood character loosely connected to our history. Even though most tourists visit Romania looking for Dracula legends , once they're here, find out about the other main attractions and meet locals - surprise and wonder sets in!

The capital city Bucharest is a bustling city of contrasts. Though rough on the edges it is by far the most diverse and attractive for tourists. The main tourist cities of Brasov and Sibiu are famous for their Old Town with medieval architecture. But Cluj Napoca, Timisoara , Oradea or Iasi have their own stories to tell. But Romanian culture and spirit is best experienced when traveling in rural areas - perhaps on horse drawn carts . The ageing locals who preserved the traditional, authentic Romanian village life have done so by keeping a low profile, away from civilisation and busy "modern" life.

The charm of Transylvania that made the UK's King Charles fall in love with Romania and buy village houses here can't be experienced on a touristy day trip from the capital to Brasov and Dracula Castle.

You need to go deeper into rural areas with a tour guide who has the connections to show you around, meet locals, enjoy Romanian cuisine with home-grown food and experience their way of life firsthand. You need to slow down - which is rare in the fast-paced world of today - and a ride on horse-drawn carts will help with that :)

Transylvania Tours and Trips

Sadly, time is passing for our elders. Many Romanian villages have been abandoned and lost their ways since younger generations moved to larger cities. And if you add Romania's underdeveloped tourism and public transport infrastructure in the mix, then you'll see why our honest and friendly recommendation for the best way to experience Romania is to hire a local guide. Here are 3 reasons why:

  • first, for a decent price you'll have less stress with planning and driving (not easy!), and you'll actually understand what you're visiting instead of just taking a picture! besides learning about our history and culture, our guides have connections to locals, lesser known places and sights you wouldn't be able to find on your own, especially in rural areas
  • second, since 2017 we at Romanian Friend personally built a network of 50+ guides and partners all over the country; our guides are licensed and specialised in certain travel types (culture, hiking, wildlife, etc.) or regions, and deliver exceptional services so you get great value-for-money when visiting Romania; we've welcomed over 10,000 travelers on our tours and are proud of our reviews
  • finally, we created tours that support responsible, inclusive and eco-friendly travel so if you travel to Romania and book with us, your visit will directly benefit local people and communities; this is our mission

Final tip: if you visit Romania, spend some time to get to know locals. Romanians are very hospitable, thoughtful and warm people. They enjoy having guests and will treat you like family, feed you till you drop (literally!), bring out their best wine or tuica and generally go out of their way to make sure you have a great time. In our guide to Romanian cuisine we explain how so much of our culture and social life is connected to food, hospitality and enjoying meals together.

But so much hospitality and friendliness towards strangers might seem too much at first, or even make you feel uncomfortable. But this is just how Romanians are and an integral part of our culture: family, friends and community play a big role in Romanian life - even if Bram Stoker never mentioned this in his Dracula novel! If you have the chance, go to any Romanian festival and you'll see what I mean :)

Abandon any pre-conceptions about Romania and open your heart and mind while you're here, explore the country and meet locals. Let them show you what a beautiful country we have. Despite the uncertainties of travel, Romania will still surprise you, I'm sure of it. Why?

Because I've heard this so many times from our clients: Wow, I never thought Romania has so much to offer!

So that's it - I hope this will make it easy for you to travel to Romania and have a memorable holiday! I started Romanian Friend as a one-stop-shop to promote my country and its people, so you'll find everything you need on this website.

And if there's something missing, you have a question or need help with planning - just contact us - happy to help!

Roaming with Joy: A Solo’s Romania Roadmap

Roaming around Romania is one of the most enriching experiences a solo traveler can have. From the rugged Carpathians to the Black Sea beaches, Romania is a country that will delight every curious adventurer out there. With a rich cultural heritage and a warm hospitality towards tourists, Romania is a hidden gem in the heart of Europe.

Hitting the Open Road

The perfect way to explore Romania is by hitting the open road. Rent a car and embark on a journey of discovery. The Transfagarasan Highway, winding through the Carpathian Mountains, is considered one of the most beautiful roads in Europe. It’s a must-see for any road trip enthusiast. The winding road offers breathtaking views around every corner, from glacial lakes to towering cliffs.

Discovering Hidden Gems

Romania is a country of hidden gems, each waiting to be discovered. From the picturesque painted monasteries in Bucovina to the medieval citadel of Sighisoara, there’s a surprise around every corner. The Danube Delta, a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a haven for nature lovers, with over 300 species of birds and unique flora and fauna. The Merry Cemetery in Sapanta is a one-of-a-kind experience, where colorful tombstones painted with humorous epitaphs tell the story of the deceased.

Savoring Romanian Cuisine

One of the best ways to explore a new culture is through its cuisine. Romanian food is hearty, flavorful, and diverse. From traditional dishes like sarmale (stuffed cabbage rolls) and mici (grilled meat rolls), to savory soups like ciorba and zacusca (a vegetable spread), Romanian cuisine is a feast for the senses. Wash it all down with a glass of tuica, a local plum brandy, or a refreshing pint of Ursus beer.

Embracing Solo Adventure

Traveling solo in Romania is a chance to embrace adventure and explore at your own pace. Take a dip in the thermal waters of the Bear Lake or hike through the Retezat National Park. Or simply wander through the cobbled streets of the old town in Brasov or Bucharest, soaking up the atmosphere and chatting with the friendly locals.

Roaming around Romania is a journey of self-discovery, a chance to step out of your comfort zone and embrace new experiences. With its rich culture, stunning landscapes, and warm hospitality, Romania is a country that will stay with you long after you leave. So pack your bags, hit the open road, and get ready for an adventure of a lifetime.

A Perfect Two-Week Itinerary for Romania

Brasov

Romania is one of Europe’s best-preserved gems and is a country of wonders. Breathtaking mountain scenery, pristine forests, centuries-old traditions, vibrant cities full of art, year-round cultural events, and unique landmarks make Romania a country that everyone should visit at least once. This two-week itinerary will take you through the country’s bucolic countrysides, picturesque landscapes, beautiful castles, medieval citadels and charming cities.

Total distance (approximate): 2,283 km (1,418 miles)

Total driving time (approximate): 38 hours

Recommended number of days travelling: 13

Day One: Bucharest

Bucharest , the beautiful capital of Romania, is one of the most vivid cities in the country. It exhibits a blend of traditional and contemporary museums, Communist architecture, great parks, majestic buildings, and lively bars and cafés. Spend your day wandering in the Old Centre. Visit the monumental Palace of Parliament and the Museum of Contemporary Art situated inside. Meander in the Cișmigiu Park or go to the Dimitrie Gusti National Village Museum if you want to feel like you’re in a traditional Romanian village. For lunch or dinner, you can go to Caru cu Bere, one of the best traditional restaurants in Bucharest.

joy travel romania

Day Two: Bucharest – Tulcea – Danube Delta

Distance: 280 kilometres (174 miles)

joy travel romania

Travel Time: 3h 30 min

From Bucharest, head to Tulcea, located next to the Danube Delta . From Tulcea, you can take a boat ride with a local guide on the delta’s channels, discovering its remote villages and surprising forests. For birdwatchers, this is a must-see destination, as from April to September, 350 bird species gather here.

Danube Delta

Day Three: Tulcea – Berca – Sinaia

Distance: 375 kilometres (233 miles)

Travel Time: 6h

Sinaia is a beautiful mountain resort town, best known for housing the spectacular Peleș Castle ; the former summer residence of Romania’s kings and one of the most charming castles of Romania. Built by Carol I, the palace today is a museum, exhibiting stunning Neo-Renaissance architecture and no less than 170 rooms that take visitors through the world’s architectural styles. Next to it is the Pelisor Castle (the small version of the Peleș Castle), which houses the heart of Queen Marie of Romania, one of the most beloved monarchs of the country.

On your way to Sinaia, you can stop in Berca to see the Mud Volcanoes : peculiar landforms created by the eruption of mud as a result of natural gases or hot water mixing with subterranean mineral deposits.

Peles Castle

Day Four: Sinaia – Bucegi – Bran

Distance: 50 kilometres (31 miles)

Travel Time: 1h

The fourth day is dedicated to one natural wonder and to Dracula’s Castle. Leave Sinaia and take the TransBucegi. This is a marvellous route that will take you to the Bucegi Mountains and its fantastic sights: Babele and Sfinxul . Carved in the mountains by Mother Nature, the two marvels are some of Romania’s most unique attractions.

The Sphinx, Bucegi Mountains

Further on, the Bran Castle appears, perched on a cliff, dominating the valley. While many relate it to the myth of Dracula, the castle was never home to the blood-thirsty vampire, but was surely an inspiration for Bram Stooker’s novel, Dracula . The old fortress had a strategic role at one time as the customs house between Wallachia and Transylvania. The castle today is a stronghold, a royal residence of Queen Marie of Romania and an inspiring place for creatives.

Day Five: Bran – Prejmer – Brașov

Distance: 65 kilometres (40 miles)

Travel Time: 1h 15 min

Discover Romania’s Saxon heritage by visiting the surprising fortified churches and citadels erected by the German colonists of Transylvania. Start with Prejmer, the largest fortified church in southeastern Europe. Thick walls with built-in shelter rooms shield the majestic Gothic church. The fortifications served to protect the inhabitants of Prejmer from foreign invaders. Each family had a room carved into the fort’s walls. The structure was used as a safe harbour in times of siege.

End your day in Brașov , one of the seven citadels erected by the Saxons and a charming city tucked away at the feet of the Carpathians. Featuring monumental walls and bastions, the Black Church is the biggest Gothic church between Istanbul and Vienna, and it sits on the narrowest street in Europe: Rope Street. With magnificent views, Brașov will surely fascinate you.

Just 30 minutes away by car is the Poiana Brașov Resort, a ski paradise in winter and a great place to hike and enjoy awe-inspiring views in summer.

Council Square

Day Six: Brașov – Lacul Roșu – Bicaz

Distance: 210 kilometres (130 miles)

Travel Time: 3h 45 min

Today’s route will take you to a quaint lake and several astonishing gorges. First stop, Lacul Roșu, The Red Lake. This lake is natural and was formed as a consequence of the 1838 earthquake. Its name comes from the Red Creek that dumps reddish alluvium in the lake. There is a legend that says the red colour comes from the blood of a village’s inhabitants, killed by the earthquake.

Close to the lake are the Bicaz Gorges, carved in the mountains by the Bicaz River. Impressive stone walls border the narrow winding path connecting the regions of Transylvania and Moldova. This is one of the main rock-climbing sites in Romania.

Bicaz Gorges

Day Seven: Bicaz – Iași

Distance: 180 kilometres (112 miles)

Travel Time: 3h

The capital of the historic region of Moldavia is Iași , and it is a beautiful city that features one of Romania’s most impressive buildings: the Palace of Culture. The Palace of Culture houses the biggest Art Museum in the country. The national poet Mihai Eminescu used to find inspiration on Iași’s streets and parks. Today in the Copou Park, visitors can see the 500-year-old linden tree, next to which he wrote some of his best poems.

Palace of Culture, Iasi

Day Eight: Iași – Voroneț

Distance: 160 kilometres (99 miles)

Travel Time: 2h 30 min

Head north toward Bucovina. The painted churches of Bucovina stand like bastions of their faith, depicting the Orthodox beliefs through extraordinary works of art. The most surprising one is the Church of Voronet , painted in a blue colour (called the ‘Blue of Voroneț’) that changes its tint every season. The Voronet Monastery is included on the UNESCO World Heritage list together with seven other churches in the villages of Bucovina.

Outdoor frescoes at Voronet Church

Day Nine: Voroneț – Săpânța

Distance: 235 kilometres (146 miles)

Travel Time: 5h 30 min

Located in the Maramureș region, a land of old customs and traditions, Săpânța features a unique cemetery: the ‘Merry Cemetery’. While a normal cemetery has nothing merry in it, the one in Săpânța features good-humored poems about the ones buried. The whole conception of the place was based on the Dacian (Romanian ancestors) belief that death is a moment filled with joy, as it represents only a passage to a better life.

Merry Cemetery, Sapanta

Day Ten: Săpânța – Cluj-Napoca

Distance: 196 kilometres (122 miles)

From Maramureș, descend to the ‘Heart of Transylvania’: Cluj-Napoca , a vivid city brimming with Romanian contemporary art, various architectural styles and a multicultural population. Explore the historical centre with its picturesque squares and monumental landmarks, like the Saint Michael Gothic Church and Equestrian Statue of Matthias Corvinus. Go up to the Cetatuia park for a panoramic view of the city. For great Romanian food, head to Roata restaurant.

Discover Cluj’s marvellous architecture

Day Eleven: Cluj-Turda – Sighișoara

Close to Cluj is another natural wonder of Romania: the Turda Salt Mine . A former pearl of the industry, the Turda Salt Mine is a unique attraction at 120 metres (400 feet) underground. It has been transformed into a leisure space featuring a Ferris wheel, an amphitheatre, a football field and a golf course.

Continue toward Sighișoara citadel, Europe’s best preserved inhabited medieval fortress. Wander on its cobbled streets adorned with stunning colourful houses. Get to higher ground by climbing up the clock tower and enjoy the eye-catching views over the city. If you visit by the end of June, re-live the medieval times during the Sighișoara Medieval Festival .

Sighisoara

Day Twelve: Sighișoara – Sibiu

Distance: 95 kilometres (59 miles)

Travel Time: 1h 30 min

Discover the most romantic city of Romania: Sibiu . This is a city to wander, relax in and discover. Start exploring the city in the Big Square, beautifully decorated with baroque buildings. One of the houses is Romania’s first museum: the Brukenthal National Museum .

Continue your journey in the Huet Square and visit the monumental evangelical church. From here, you have to cross the Lies Bridge to get to the Small Square. Be careful about what you say, as the Lies Bridge allegedly shudders every time someone tells a lie while crossing.

End your day with a splendid view over the city from the Council Tower’s upper terrace.

Sibiu, Romania I

Day Thirteen: Sibiu – Bucharest

Distance: 277 kilometres (172 miles)

Travel Time: 4h

Stop by the ASTRA Folk Museum before heading to Bucharest and spend a half-day surrounded by traditional houses and workshops. Built on 96 hectares (237 acres), the museum features a big lake where you can take boat rides.

Once your visit is finished, take the route back to Bucharest and prepare for your departure. Take an evening walk or have a last drink in the country’s capital before saying ‘good bye’ to Romania. Until the next holiday.

ASTRA Open-Air Museum
