Romania will amaze you with its scenic mountain landscapes and unspoiled countryside areas. You will find yourself enchanted by Romania’s thirteen national parks and ninenatural parks. You will be delighted to explore the Danube Delta, the third-richest biosphere reservation in the world. If you are a beach lover, relax in the Black Sea’s sun-kissedbeaches, while mountain lovers will enjoy skiing, hiking and camping at the ski resorts in the Carpathian Mountains. A country rich in history and culture, Romania will mesmerize you with its medieval towns, such as Sighisoara, Brasov and Sibiu, located in Transylvania. Marvel at their unique architectural treasures. Transylvania’s fortified churches, Bucovina’s painted monasteries, Maramure’s wooden masterpieces, and ancient Dacian ruins are just some of the attractions that make up Romania’s exceptional cultural heritage. 25 preserved architectural pearls are designated by UNESCO as World Cultural Heritage sites for their monumental and scenic appeal. Don’t miss the annual George Enescu Festival, the Easter Celebration and Romania’s exquisite cuisine. The rest is just to be experienced.

Known for its tree-lined boulevards, glorious Belle Époque buildings and a reputation for the high life, Romania’s largest city and capital, Bucharest, is today a bustling metropolis. The first must-see in Bucharest is the Historic Centre, or Old Town. Then you can head for the amazing sights, museums, churches and buildings. The Peasant and Village Museums should take priority, as well as the Grigore Antipa National History Museum. The most famous building in the city, Palatul Parlamentului, must be visited. Art and religion lovers should pencil in at least an afternoon at the National Art Museum. Last, but not least, have a wonderful trip through Romanian literary, artistic, political and architectural history at the magnificent Bellu Cemetery.

Founded by Transylvanian Saxons during the 12th century, Sighisoara still stands as one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this perfectly intact 16th century gem with nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches rivals the historic streets of Old Prague or Vienna for atmospheric magic. It is also Vlad Dracula’s birthplace. His house is a main attraction. Others include the Church on the Hill with its 500-year-old frescoes, the 13th century Venetian House and the Church of the Dominican Monastery. Don’t miss the Festival of Medieval Arts and Crafts in July!

Few cities in Europe have Brasov’s charm, a placid, gentle, civilized city nestled in the Carpathian Mountains and a fabulous base for exploring the surrounding countryside. Start off by taking a walk around the old city walls, the fortifications at Strada Dupa Ziduri. On the way around, you will see most of the city’s major sights, before ending up at the Bastionul Postavarilor. From there you can head up Strada Republicii into the Old Town’s heart Town and check off the remaining essential sights, such as Strada Sforii, Piata Sfatului and the Black Church. Brasov is blessed with a good number of decent museums. Explore the Art Museum, Ethnographic Museum and First Romanian School Museum.

Constanţa, a coastal Black Sea town, is the second most important city in the country and, during summer, a beautiful tourist city. You can stroll the city’s streets, the historical peninsular area which has a special charm, the sea coast, the Tomis marina or one of the many parks. Walk by the lakeside or through the ruins of Tomis, the ancient Greek colony. You can sunbathe or swim in the magnificent Black Sea. Constanta has been continuously inhabited for 2600 years so there is a lot to see: The old Casino, Ovid’s statue, The National Museum of History and Archeology, The Navy’s Museum, and many more. Basically, a place for everyone!

Transylvania is located in the center of Romania. It is home to some of Europe’s best-preserved medieval towns.The Western world commonly associates Transylvania with vampires, because of the influence of Bram Stoker’s novel Dracula and its many film adaptations. Transylvania’s multi-ethnic heritage is delightfully apparent in the folk costumes, architecture, cuisine, music and festivals. Visitors to Transylvania will encounter  stunning castles and fortified churches which are really interesting to everybody.

Romania is a beautiful land of surprises not only the country of Dracula. With amazing landscapes, great food tradition and friendly people , Romania is an interesting country to visit. Visitors can marvel at Romania’s unique architectural treasures, such as castles, fortified churches and centuries-old houses, while exploring sites where more than 900 years ago Saxon craftsmen and merchants established powerful and rich citadels.
