Authentic, Natural and Cultural are the words that best capture the essence of Romania, a dynamic country rich in history, arts and scenic beauty. Romania is a fascinating example of what happens when modernization hits tradition at high speed. What you get is a curious and wholly exceptional combination of old and new. Discover ancient monasteries and majestic castles that dot the windswept plains of the countryside. Or, explore cities like Bucharest, whose fast-developing infrastructure stands in stark contrast to its Soviet-era architecture.
Romania offers countless unique travel experiences that are waiting to be discovered. A journey of three of four hours, by car or train, can take you from the Danube River to a beautiful, intact, medieval town; from Bucharest – Romania’s capital city – to the Black Sea; from Southern Transylvania to the historic regions of Bucovina or Maramures.
Take a step back in time as you visit one of the unique painted monasteries in Bucovina, the perfectly preserved hilltop citadel of Sighisoara or an authentic, centuries-old, village in Maramures.
