The largest of the Balkan nations, Romania is a land of stunning mountain scenery, unspoiled landscapes and historic towns. On this week-long holiday, you will experience two very different sides of this astonishing country, from traditional rural life to the modern and rapidly changing character of the country’s buzzing capital.
Travel through the pristine countryside of the Transylvania region and marvel at the spectacular backdrop of the Carpathian Mountains. Visit some of the area’s picturesque medieval towns, with highlights including the impeccably preserved hilltop citadel of Sighisoara, the Saxon walls and Baroque town square of Brasov, the colourful streets of Sibiu or historical fortified churches in Harman and Prejmer and the Royal Castle at Sinaia. Of course, no stay in Transylvania would be complete without a visit to the imposing fortress of Dracula’s Castle.
Top off your stay in Romania with two nights in the country’s fascinating capital, Bucharest, where you can explore the impressive old town and admire the city’s many 17th & 18th century Orthodox churches, art nouveau villas and neoclassical palaces.
Some excursions on this holiday will involve walking on hilly terrain and uneven surfaces.
