Top things to do in Romania

Romania is the perfect traveling directions for the diversity of high-quality things to do and to enjoy what it has: lots of nature, beautiful architecture, mouth-watering cuisine, beautiful mountains, melodic language, and a rich, lively wealth of arts and culture.

  • Transylvania and Dracula’s Castle: Peles Castle and Bran Castle, the latter is known as "Dracula's Castle," will fascinate you with their Neo-Renaissance architecture. You can easily find a combined trip to Transylvania, with the sightseeing of both castles included, with round-trip transportation and professional guides speaking your language. Other key landmarks that we would recommend to take the time to see are Sibiu, Biertan Fortified Church, Brasov, and Sighisoara.
  • Bucharest Parliament Palace: Formerly known as the People's Palace, the Bucharest Parliament Palace is the second-largest building in the world and the heaviest building in the world. Inside there are several museums: The National Museum of Contemporary Art, the Museum of Communist Totalitarianism, and the Museum of the Palace, and there is also an International Conference Centre.
  • The Painted Monasteries of Bucovina: This is an exciting direction for people with a historical or artistic inclination or both. Granted the status of a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1993. The monasteries covered with vibrant murals are something that you won't regret seeing. Especially if you are there in a beautiful weather, it might even hit the top of your traveling memories list.
  • Transalpina: It is a common name of the road 67C in Romania, running through the middle part of the country. It is one of the highest roads of the Carpathian Mountains, and it is its surroundings that make it a thing to consider. While taking the multiple turns, you will have all the time you need to praise the surrounding fauna and flora.
  • Vulcanii Noroiosi: The Berca Mud Volcanoes are, in fact, two separate locations: The Little Mud Volcanoes and The Big Mud Volcanoes. The entrance fee is cheap, but it is only allowed on dry days (that were not preceded by raining days). This geological and botanical reservation is a miracle of nature, where you can admire the muddy eruptions, coming from the deep undergrounds of the Earth, 3000m below the surface.

Where to Stay in Romania?

Romania is a rich country with accommodation opportunities for every budget. Bucharest has more than 1,500 accommodation facilities such as luxury hotels, budget hotels, hostels, and rental apartments. Bucarest city consists of six regions that each has its own municipality. Among them, the sector one, two, three, and four are the most preferred destinations to accommodate by the tourist, as these sectors have proximity to the city center and the historical places to visit. Sector one has mostly luxury hotels, whereas sector four is a more affordable area. In any case, the most popular area to stay is sector three in Bucharest.

We listed some useful side notes about Romania for you right below.  

Things to Know Before Visiting Romania

  • Romania is a safe country; there is nothing to worry about in terms of the security awaiting us;
  • The local currency is a Romanian lei – as the country lies outside of the Schengen Area, though, it is recommended to exchange the currencies before arriving and using mostly cash;
  • Be ready to try a lot of fantastic dishes, and keep in mind that the side dishes – such as cheese or bread – are no less delicious!
  • Trains are cheap, but their quality is rather Eastern European – don't expect a TGV. Buses are a good alternative, but that is not to say that we don't recommend the trains; they are a part of the local folklore;
  • As for getting around, taxis are also not a bad option – they are affordable.
  • Whatever your priorities, on top of that, there has to be Transylvania. You will have to take a day trip to see it correctly, but every bit of that trip will be worth it.
