Top 5 weekend summer destinations in Romania

This summer enjoy discovering the natural wonders of Romania: a land of magic, tradition, rich culture and history! Are you ready?

For the majority of us, summer holidays are the most sought-after period of the entire year. We love to search for new places to visit and write new stories. Why? Because we can finally relax, forget about stress, worries, and anxiety and simply focus on the things that bring us the most joy.

After long tiring months where we devoted our energy to work or other activities of a financial nature, we can take advantage of these days off and get involved in new activities. Going to a new and exciting location brings out most enthusiasm out of us. We begin to feel in our element and thing about life in a quieter manner. The tumultuous elements in our lives are left behind.

Perhaps we can even learn something useful or dig into the marvelous world of ancient history. There are hundreds of lessons that our ancestors have left behind and some of the most beautiful accomplishments of past generations can still be admired today. The past is a source of wisdom.

It would be a shame not to gather information about some of the most beloved places in Romania. This stunning country can surprise you in a good way. There were many people that decided to spend their vacations in Romania and were greeted by amazing feelings of joy and satisfaction.

Sturdza Castle in Miclauseni. Built in the 16th century by the Sturdza family, this impressive architectural masterpiece has managed to survive the many tests of history up to the present day.

You could spend an entire day wandering through the spacious rooms of the castle, admiring the handmade wall paintings, luxurious furniture, and several art collections. And if you are feeling adventurous, you could even visit the monastery nearby. Also, the castle has a beautiful restaurant where you can treat yourself with some delicious dishes.

Neamt Fortress in Targu Neamt. One of the most impressive medieval constructions in Romania is the Neamt Fortress. It was built in the 13th century and has faced many difficult battles in its glory days. Due to its solid foundation and the powerful stones used to build it, this fortress was never seized by enemies. It’s located at 400 meters altitude, which means that you will get a panoramic view of the city.

Bicaz Lake and Bicaz Canyon. These are another two wonderful weekend destinations. They’re located close to each-other, which means that it won’t be difficult to drive through this distance, especially if you have a good car by your side. These are beautiful locations where you can relax and enjoy some peace and quiet in the heart of nature. Bicaz Lake is a great getaway from the stress and agitation of the big cities. Bicaz Canyon is a stupendous natural piece of art, consisting of tall rocks (over 300 meters in height) carved within the mountains.

The littoral of the Black Sea. As it’s summer, it would be an excellent idea to spend some time on a sunny beach. And why not visit one of the many beautiful resorts near the Black Sea? These are small pieces of heaven where you can enjoy the magic of the sea and forget all about your worries. Also, during July and August, there will be several festivals organized which promise tons of fun and entertainment.

The Danube’s Cauldrons. If isolation is what you’re seeking and you are interested in completely escaping the agitated environment of a big city, then going to Orsova may be a smart idea. This is a location situated on the Danube’s shore and very close by you will have access to Danube’s Cauldrons, a real natural paradise. Here, you can go on a boat ride and admire the breathtaking views and also catch a glimpse of the impressive statue of Decebal carved into stone.
