Romania offers a different holiday with its vast landscape of mountains, traditional scenes of horse-drawn buggies crossing roads and Transylvania’s castles.
One of the EU’s newest members, Romania is a country that transports you back to a simpler time. Almost everywhere you will spot horse-drawn buggies crossing the roads, grand mountains, bulky haystacks and herds of sheep.
Many visitors stumble on Romania due to the hair-raising tales about Dracula, but besides Transylvania’s castles and medieval Saxon towns, there is still a lot more to digest whilst in Romania.
The capital Bucharest
is embellished with big communist monuments within the magnificent walls of cathedrals. Hiking, skiing and biking are all common activities for those who dare venture to the Transylvanian Alps which stretch across central Romania.
A country of extremes – hot during the summer and freezing cold during the winter, Romania has a lot more to offer than the capital. Places such as Brasov, Poiana Brasov and Sibiu offer many days of delight away from the distractions of larger cities.
On the way to the Bucegi Mountains
, travel around the gorges of Piatra Craiului
to experience the vastness of the region. The Bucegi Mountains have a diverse range of landscapes that vary from pine and beech forests to meadows and limestone cliffs.
With so much on offer, fly to Romania for an adventure with a unique twist.
