Join us on a holiday to Romania

Discover Romania, an enchanting country where rugged mountains and alpine peaks tower over rustic villages and vibrant medieval cities. Discover a historic country where centuries-old traditions happily co-exist with new and modern customs. 

Bordering the Black Sea to the southeast, Bulgaria to the south, Ukraine to the north, Hungary to the west, Serbia to the southwest, and Moldova to the east, Romania sits at the crossroads of Central, Eastern, and South-eastern Europe.

Romania may be a country that most people associate with vast, unpopulated forests and Soviet-era struggles, but its capital, Bucharest is anything but backwoods. Here, you can stroll along the Parisian-style grand boulevards and take in the city’s charming and vibrant atmosphere. Feast your eyes with the city’s belle époque architectural wonders, which include some lovely little hidden villas and the city’s oldest beerhouse, the Caru’ cu Bere, and its spectacular 17th- and 18th-century Orthodox churches, and don’t forget to visit the enormous Palace of Parliament.

In complete contrast to Bucharest, Transylvania enchants with its Gothic castles, ancient towns and villages, all surrounded by the spectacular enigmatic backdrop of the forested Carpathian Mountains. Inextricably entangled in a web of dark legends and gothic history in most of our minds, Transylvania was the inspiration behind Bram Stoker’s Dracula, but its natural wonders are more likely to leave you awe-struck in delight than terror.

Get a glimpse bears and wolves in their natural habitat in the forests surrounding Brașov, or perhaps head to the Libearty Bear Sanctuary near Zarnesti where at least 60 of these animals have been rescued from captivity. Take in Brasov’s medieval heart and the fairy-tale castles that shelter in the surrounding forests - including Peles Castle, Rasnov Castle and glorious “chez Dracula”, otherwise known as Bran Castle.

Elsewhere, step back in time in the enchanting rural region of the Maramures. Explore its many villages where century-old traditions remain surprisingly untouched by the 21st Century. See the blue heart-shaped wooden crosses of the Merry Cemetery, where the colourful painted tombstones are designed to show the personality of the deceased. South of the region, Cluj-Napoca, offers visitors the chance to see yet more magnificent architecture and to discover trendy cafes, galleries and gardens as well as some lively nightlife. And, further south still, explore ancient Sibiu’s churches and painted houses. Previously named the European Capital of Culture, Sibiu delights with pretty squares and down cobblestone streets.

Take a holiday to Romania and expect to be equally enchanted and intrigued by this exciting, unexpected destination.
