Romania must be one of the most up-and-coming tourist destinations of Europe. The Black Sea, Danube and majestic mountains paint the portrait of this country off the main tourist track, setting the unique scene for rich monasteries, wooden churches and authentic villages. Your journey will start in Bucharest. Forget your astonishment in front of the excessive proportions of Parliament House and head for the Baroque churches and museums, that are fully the equal of other European capitals. Venture out into deepest Rumania, to its castles, country inns and ancestral traditions to explore legendary Transylvania, whose Baroque town of Sibiu has lost none of its inimitable cachet. Authentic Romania is also visible in the charming Bucovina region, rich in meticulously decorated villages and breathtaking painted monasteries. In a different register, the Carpathian Mountains are equally grandiose. Here, high peaks, gushing waterfalls, deep gorges and thick forests await the hiker. You will also fall in love with the stunning Danube Delta, where land and water merge into a multitude of canals, that you can peacefully explore as far as the beaches of the Black Sea. Finally, any lingering misconceptions you may have will be swept away by the inhabitants' infectious love of life and friendly disposition!
