A country of contrasts, there’s a huge area of Romania that is sparsely populated thanks to the rocky terrain of the Carpathian Mountains and the surrounding forests. Meanwhile, the bustling city of Bucharest is a hive of energy and lots of fun. The centre may be contemporary, but explore hidden corners and you’ll be rewarded with unexpected art nouveau villas and pretty orthodox churches.
The landscape is dotted with stone monasteries and Transylvania boasts a glut of atmospheric gothic castles perched on dramatic rocky outcrops. Bran Castle is of course linked to Bram Stoker’s fictional Count Dracula but there are plenty of others to admire and explore. Wander through the cobbled streets in the medieval towns and sample the many cafes and bars or immerse yourself in tradition by visiting the folk museums.
To the South, Europe’s second longest river, the Danube, has a delta that provides a home for hundreds of species of birds and fish. Fishing, boating and bird-watching are all popular pastimes and there are endless opportunities for walking across all terrains.
In Summer the beach resorts attract swimmers, sun worshippers and party-goers. Peace seekers need not apply.Our Top Romania Tours

THE STAFF AT BALTIC HOLIDAYS ARE PROFESSIONAL, KNOWLEDGEABLE AND EXCEEDINGLY FLEXIBLE
My husband and I worked with the exceptional staff at Baltic Holidays to plan two remarkable tailor-made vacations: One to Russia, Finland and Estonia, the other to Eastern Europe visiting Bucharest, Budapest and Prague. The accommodations were perfect and located in convenient places in the cities we visited. The guides we had for day trips both in and out of the cities were knowledgeable, smart and each and everyone went out of their way to make our visit wonderful. We were warmly greeted at the airport and bus stations with staff that took us to our hotels and delivered us back on time and in comfort. Baltic Holidays went the extra mile to help us get tickets to concerts, operas and even the Moscow Circus. But best of all the staff at Baltic Holidays are professional, knowledgeable and exceedingly flexible. We spend lots of time communicating on e-mail about different trip options until we got our plans just right. We feel like the staff are friends now and look forward to working with them again on our next adventure.
