Top Places To Visit & Tourist Attractions In Romania
Romania’s historic region of Transylvania is known for its beautiful scenery, medieval towns and fascinating legends. The region is located in the central part of the country and is bordered on the East and South by the dramatic Carpathian mountains. Probably the most famous of Transylvania’s wonders is Bran Castle, otherwise known as Dracula’s Castle. On our holidays to Romania including Transylvania, we’ll visit this infamous castle and other legendary sites with an expert, local guide to give us the history of this storied region.
The capital and Romania’s largest city, Bucharest has been an important cultural and commercial centre since the 1400s. Originally a trading town that connected important routes between Europe and Asia, the city’s style and architecture has been influenced by centuries of diverse history. The historic Old Town of Bucharest is the district of artisans and merchants that emerged around the Princely Court back in the 16th century. Since the Romanian Revolution in 1989, it has evolved into a lively entertainment district, full of bars, pubs & restaurants, making it the perfect area to explore, day or night.
The Bran Castle is a medieval fortress on the Transylvanian border, dating back to the 13th century. Situated on the edge of Bran Gorge, it was the inspiration behind Dracula’s Castle in Bram Stoker’s classic novel. Today, the castle is open to the public and houses a display of art and furniture collected by Queen Marie during the fortress’s time as a royal residence between 1920 and 1948. On our holidays to Romania including Bran Castle, we’ll have the chance to tour this awe-inspiring fortress and learn about its rich history.
The Carpathian Mountains form a circle around the region of Transylvania in central Romania, and are home to one of the largest undisturbed forests in Europe. The Carpathian’s are rich in biodiversity, with hundreds of species of flora and fauna, including 60% of the population of European Brown Bears. These mountains also boast incredible natural rock formations, dramatic cliffs, and plenty of hiking trails, making them a perfect destination for outdoor enthusiasts. On our holidays to Romania, we’ll have a chance to explore these beautiful mountains up close.
Sighisoara is a beautifully preserved medieval town set in the rolling countryside of Transylvania. The city walls encircle cobbled streets lined with 16th century burghers’ houses and churches. The well-preserved medieval citadel dominates the New Town from its rocky massif, where the slopes support a jumble of ancient leaning houses. The citadel is on the UNESCO World Heritage list.
