Book a hotel in a country with rich heritage and abundant natural beauty, located at the northern end of the Balkan Peninsula. Here you can discover scenic mountains and dense forests that are dotted with medieval castles. Romania is a land of contrasts: there are modern cities and ancient villages that seem to have stood still for generations. Hike in the famous Carpathian mountains, learn more about the Dracula myth and explore the fertile Danube delta.
Transylvania - The country’s most famous region is known for its medieval castles and dark forests, and around the world for its association with the Dracula myth.
Banat - The wealthiest of Romania’s provinces, discover Baroque cities and traditional villages nestled among the huge forests. Plenty of beautiful hotels around here.
Bucovina - This small, northern region is the land of beautifully painted monasteries and rolling green hills.
Oltenia - The south west of the country bordering Serbia and Bulgaria along the Danube. Explore the monasteries, caves and flat, desert-like area along the southern border and book yourself a top hotel.
Dobrogea - This coastal province is home to ruins of ancient Greek and Roman cities, as well as Black Sea holiday resorts and hotels, and the fertile Danube delta.
Romania’s many storybook medieval castles are a big attraction, including Peles and Bran. Visit the former home of Vlad the Impaler, believed to be the inspiration behind the Dracula myth. See the colossal Palace of Parliament in the capital, Bucharest, and wander the streets of the remaining parts of the old town. Other notable city destinations include Brasov, Sibiu and Timisoara. In the small region of Bucovina in the north you’ll stumble across painted monasteries or take a trip to the salt mine in Turda. With thousands of square miles of pristine forest, complete with historic villages, there’s a hidden and enigmatic quality to Romania that you’ll love to uncover.
Romania is one of the most religious countries in Europe, with ancient churches and monasteries all over, many of which are painted dazzling colours. Explore national parks including Craiului and the Ciucas mountains or take a day trip to Peles or Bran castles from the capital Bucharest. Tour the central region of Transylvania or learn more about the country’s Communist past on a walking tour of the capital, passing the huge Palace of Parliament. It’s one of the biggest administrative buildings in the world, second only to the Pentagon. Head to the Black Sea coast and city of Constanta, and you’ll find some of Europe’s fastest growing resorts. Romania is a country where old and new coexist in the most unusual ways, and it’s great fun walking the lines between them.
