ROMANIA

Romania is a destination still little known by mass tourism, and, also, for this reason, it is a little gem waiting to be discovered. Lush valleys, mountains dotted with beautiful castles, historic regions, lovely monasteries and villages, UNESCO heritage sites, the list could never end. You have to go and discover it all!

ROMANIA IDENTITY CARD    

Romania is a country located at the crossroads of Central, Eastern, and South-eastern Europe; Bucharest is its capital and largest city. There’s something beautiful about every season here. You can go sightseeing in May, soak up the sun and enjoy Romania’s beaches in August, explore the great outdoors in September, or go skiing in December. However, referring strictly to the temperatures here, the best time to visit Romania would be mid-May through mid-September. Visiting Romania during late spring or early fall will provide you with the best possible weather, as you will be able to enjoy lots of sunshine, as well as comfortable temperatures.

HOW TO REACH ROMANIA    

Flying to Romania is the best way to get here. No less than six low-cost carriers are flying on 7 Romanian airports spread all over the country from more than 70 locations in Europe! And that’s not including major airlines flying on Bucharest Otopeni (the main international airport) with connecting flights from as far away as New York or Doha. If you prefer to travel by train, there are direct trains to Romanian cities from Vienna, Budapest, Belgrade, Sofia, Thessaloniki, and Istanbul, which either stop in border cities like Oradea and Timisoara or head to Bucharest. 

WHAT TO EAT IN ROMANIA     

While Romania is better known internationally for Dracula and Transylvania, we suggest you also experience its lesser-known cuisine. We want to present to you some typical dishes you have to taste once in Romania! The Sarmale (cabbage rolls), made of minced meat (usually pork or in combination with poultry) mixed with spices, rice, and onions, then rolled up in sour (fermented) cabbage leaves and boiled for hours in a special sauce made of sauerkraut juice, tomato juice, and other secret ingredients. The Cozonac (sweet bread), this Romanian dessert, is a type of sweet bread filled with sweet walnut paste, poppy seed paste, and raisins. The Ciorbă de burtă (beef tripe soup) is made from the stomach of a cow and vegetables, flavored with lots of garlic and soured with vinegar, may be scary at first, but we assure you that your life won’t be the same after trying this soup.

WHAT TO DO IN ROMANIA     

Romania is a country where centuries-old traditions are firmly rooted in the local culture. Discover traditional Romanian culture by taking part in at least one of its traditional festivals. The Transylvanian Saxons Festival in early August or Haferland Week is an opportunity for the Saxons who lived in Transylvania to reunite, for the visitors to learn about the history and traditions of the Saxon community, and for the organizers to promote the local heritage.  The program includes brunch with local dishes, photographic exhibitions, guided tours on the surrounding hills and in the villages, carriage trips, organ concerts, film showings, and treasure hunt competitions. During spring, you must visit the wine exhibition RO-Wine, a two-day immersion in the renowned Romanian wines and delicatessen. For the music lovers, we suggest visiting Romania in November to take part in the Bucharest Early Music Festival, a very traditional event devoted to historical music on authentic interpretation (historically informed performance), exclusively with historical instruments or their modern replicas.
