Why visit Romania?
Explore the delta of the Danube, since Tulcea. A maze of channels and forests easily flooded, where live a preserved fauna. Most attractive strolls are proposed by the fishermen. Very hospitable, they will also make you taste with the local gastronomy.
Go in excursion in the Apuseni mounts. These mountains offer idyllic landscapes to you. The spectacle continues under ground, with the caves of Scarisoara or the underground lakes of Cetatile Ponorului.
Visit the monasteries of Bucovine, which are nested between the hills of Eastern Carpathians. True mural bibles, their walls are covered with frescos, inside as with the outside. Convents with their mural frescos date from the 16th century. Throughout the citadels of all kinds and all periods, the picturesque villages at the flowered houses, you will meet with cordial people which has kept his folklore and his traditions.
An amalgam of nations and languages: Rumanian, Hungarian, German, Ukrainian, Turkish.
An alarming past: Roman Dacie, Ottoman Valachie and Moldavie, Russian Bessarabia, Transylvania and Bucovina of Habsbourgs.
A diversity of imposing landscapes: Carpates mountains, the plateau of Transylvania, plains and the extended areas of Valachie.
Fauna is abundant, especially in Carpates and the delta of the Danube. Carpathians shelter wild boars, wolves, lynxes, foxes, bears, chamois, deers, squirrels, badgers and polecats. The delta of the Danube is famous for the extreme variety of its fauna (sturgeons, eels, migratory birds). One finds there in particular the largest colony of pelicans of Europe.
To follow the traces of Dracula, from Sighisoara to Bran (Vlad Tepes, known as the "Empaleur", hero of resistance to the Turks, has inspired Irish Bram Stocker, novelist and inventor of the mythical vampire). Straight from the Middle Ages, the city has been the birthplace of Vlad the "Empaleur", at the origin of the legend. The castle of Bran, fixed on hillside, would have been used to him as den.
Alpine stations, which some are internationally known, offer unforgettable stays. Let us quote Borsa and Vatra Dornei in the north, Slanicul Moldovei, Borsec and Sovata in the center of the country, Poiana Brasov, Predeal, Sinaia, Busteni, Caciulata and Calimanesti in the south, Semenic and Baile Herculane in the south-west, Stina de Vale in the north-west. Those, and so much of others, are part of a rich tourist network, equipped with hotel establishments of quality.
Fortresses and castles (in Risnov, Bran, Hunedoara, Sinaia, Suceava, Neamt, Alba Iulia, Sighisoara, Histria and elsewhere) form an open book of history. It is advisable to also mention the cities, whose monuments attest a long history, the museums, fairs, botanical gardens, the natural reserves and the many touristic villages.
Let us note the opinion of some travel guides, that we recommend for the organization of your stay in Romania:
human, sensual and excessive, but too often ignored, Romania is beautiful of its
complexity. Its tormented geography shelters natural environments of an exceptional
exuberance. At the crossroads of the invasions and empires which wrote the history
of Eastern Europe, the Rumanian people knew to maintain an original identity and
to cohabit with a whole range of cultures whose one hardly knows equivalent elsewhere.
Romania is before all a ground of intelligence and old civilization, which testifies
its inheritance. It is time to walk without reserve in this generous, convivial
and inexhaustible country.
In the heart of Romania, on the south-eastern slopes of the Carpathian mountains, step back in time and discover the rural charms of a life that has maintained its rustic beauty.
