From the green valleys of Transylvania to the Carpathian Mountains, from the numerous monasteries in Bucovine
to the shore of the Black Sea
, Romania has a rich natural diversity and cultural heritage. Part of the European Union since January 1st 2007, this unfamiliar land has retained its original identity and bygone charm. Countryside scenery, traditional costume, small villages and a large number of orthodox churches all create the tender picture of Romania which never stops changing the further you explore. Endowed with a remarkable sense for making you feel welcome, the inhabitants have always kept their eternal smile despite the turmoil of the past.
Contact with inhabitants. Visitors are warmly and generously welcomed.
The quaint old-fashioned countryside, where visiting farms and the hikes in the forest are both possible.
The unmatched beauty of the monasteries of Bucovine.
Very competitive prices for a European destination - as much for flight fares as for your budget for food and accommodation.
The multiple areas of interest: a beach holiday by the Black sea, a cultural tour in Bucovine, hikes in the forests of the Carpathian Mountains or by the Danube Delta.
The devastating consequences of Ceausescu's dictatorship with cities spoilt by the extensive use of concrete tower blocks and industrial landscapes which look like Chernobyl, after the nuclear disaster.
The total lack of environmental conscience with prairies covered in litter and ultra-polluting cars and factories.
The hopeless poverty shown by the beggars in cities, farmers in rags in the country and the appalling state of orphanages.
Car rental at exhorbitant prices.

Our Editorial team's advice
You can gladly leave larger hotels to the side, mostly bleak and with negligent staff, and opt for small private boarding houses or lodging with an inhabitant. It is, however, never difficult to find a room once there, as village inhabitants post signs everywhere and spontaneously come out to you. If you do not have a lot of time in Romania, you can skip the visit to Bucharest and go directly north from the airport. A classic itinerary would be to follow in Dracula's footsteps by visiting Snagov monastery, Brasov, Bran castle and Sighisoara. Lovers of culture and tradition can opt for the villages in Maramures and the monasteries in Bucovine, whereas nature lovers will go hiking in the forests of the Carpathians and on the Danube delta, while sun bathers go to the seaside resorts.
