Romania is a beautiful country, tucked away in the southeastern corner of Europe, and is sure to delight all who visit. From its vibrant culture, bustling cities, and stunning mountain ranges, to its fascinating history and delicious cuisine, Romania has something for everyone.

As a tourist destination, Romania has much to offer. Its history is one of great diversity, from its Roman beginnings to the present day. As part of the former Soviet bloc, much of the country has transitioned into a modern European state that offers a wealth of attractions for travellers.

The two largest and most popular cities in Romania are Bucharest, the capital, and Cluj-Napoca, in the historic Transylvania region. Bucharest is home to a great many cultural attractions and landmarks such as old churches, museums, and other historic sites. Cluj-Napoca is home to some of the most beautiful scenery in Romania; you can explore its grand cobblestone streets while visualizing centuries-old castles looming atop nearby mountains.

If you’re looking for tourist destinations, Romania has plenty to offer. Bran Castle (also known as Dracula's Castle) is an iconic attraction that sits majestically atop a hill in Transylvania; take a tour of this renowned castle and learn about its history while marvelling at its spooky charm. The Peles Castle near Sinaia is another highlight; it’s considered to be one of the finest examples of German Neo-Renaissance architecture in all of Europe.

When exploring Romania, don’t forget to check out the marvellous mountain ranges throughout the country. From small villages nestled in valleys to rugged hikes that traverse magnificent peaks, it is easy to find your ideal mountain getaway here. Or if you prefer city life, take a stroll through some of Romania’s cosmopolitan cities including Sibiu; soak up some culture while grabbing a bite at one of the local eateries that dot the streets.

When it comes to food and drink, Romania certainly has something for everyone. Traditional Romanian cuisine ranges from hearty stews with potatoes and cabbage to polenta dishes topped with cheese or smoky bacon. Romanian wines come in many varieties and are much loved by locals and tourists alike. Moreover, local beer is also popular in Romania; try traditional dishes accompanied by a cold glass of Ursus or Timisoreana Pale Ale. It’s a perfect way to get a taste of Romanian culture!

In terms of affordability for travellers visiting Romania, most agree that it’s relatively inexpensive compared to other European destinations. Food is relatively affordable compared to neighbouring countries and accommodation options vary depending on location – hostels tend to be more economical while luxury hotels will cost more than average. Public transportation is easy and convenient; using cabs is an option if you’d prefer not to take the bus or train.

No matter what type of holiday experience you seek, Romania promises something unique that will leave you enchanted by its historic cities, inspiring mountain vistas, and captivating hospitality. Enjoy your stay!
