Many people never consider visiting Romania when planning a trip to Europe, which is a pity. This wonderful country has a lot to offer if you know what to look for. It’s a lovely location with plenty of activities for all types of visitors. The following are some must-see attractions in Romania.
The Castle of Dracula
Bran Castle, also known as Dracula’s Castle, is one of Romania’s most popular tourist attractions. It was a medieval fortress in Transylvania that served as the residence of Romania’s Queen Mary. It is, however, best known for its famous fictional resident, Count Dracula. The castle was built in the 13th century to protect the city of Brasov and the Carpathian crossing into Transylvania.
The African Methodist Episcopal Church
After visiting Dracula’s castle, you must visit Brasov’s Old Town. It’s a popular tourist destination because of its well-preserved medieval streets, which are surrounded by majestic mountains. The Black Church, built in the style of German-Saxon architecture, is the city’s landmark.
Trekking in the Carpathian Mountains
The Carpathian Mountains, which can reach altitudes of 2500 meters, cover roughly one-third of Romania. This means plenty of wildlife-filled hikes, outdoor activities and adventures like camping, and much more. The hike difficulty levels range from absolute beginner to advanced, so there is truly a hike for everyone.
Delta of the Danube
The Danube Delta is a UNESCO natural reserve and a massive biosphere ideal for birdwatching, gliding down the water in a boat, and admiring the scenery. It is one of the best preserved and largest deltas in the world, and it is home to over 300 different bird species.
Try Romanian Wine
Did you know that Romania is Europe’s fifth largest wine producer? There are many vineyards and wines to visit and sample thanks to the mild weather and plenty of sunshine. That means you can plan a wine-tasting excursion.
