What to visit in Romania: authentic emotions and joyous memories

The Romanian quest for amazing touristic experiences

The summer of 2019 seems to be a welcoming one for those that want to travel throughout Europe. Tourists have already set their eyes on Romania, a country that has gained momentum in attracting new people. The newfound popularity is given by the rise of positive travel experiences, put forth in different channels by tourists. They went to visit a new country and were greeted by a familiar face, with many surprises and wonderful emotions. As a result, it is absolutely normal to see so many Europeans interested in visiting Romania. Some want to see what all the fuss is about, while others know a couple of things about the country and choose to explore it live.

Even though certain aspects about the Romanian infrastructure might pose an issue, it is well worth to push forward and set your bearings with attention. The Romanian roads are not exactly top quality and some rural experiences might send you back in time. This is the truth and there is no sugar coating it. In order to have the most out of each trip, it is recommended to use good means of travel and thus overcome the negative aspects of certain roads.

Places to visit in Romania: the joy of authenticity and traditional greatness

In 2019 there many places in Romania that can become amazing sources of visual delight, spiritual deliverance and fun. This East European country is “home” to countless castles, ancient or medieval settlements, very old churches and monasteries and many other historical and cultural monuments. Mother Nature is also quite charming, being “embraced” by the Carpathian Mountains, the Danube River and the Black Sea. The Carpathian Mountains are divided into three subdivisions: Orientals, Meridionali and Occidentals. Depending on your availability, you can set to visit them and thus enjoy a great travel experience. These mountains are absolutely stunning and can bring about inner revelations.

Some of the most popular Romanian mountain resorts are Sinaia, Predeal, Poiana Brasov, Vatra Dornei, Campulung Moldovenesc, Rarau, Azuga and others. You can travel to Bucegi Platou, where you will come into contact with ancient natural monuments, “carved” by time and wind: Babele and the Sphinx. In addition, on this particular Platou, you could visit the Caraiman Cross, one of the biggest man-made crosses in Europe. The view is quite spectacular here, worth immortalizing in photos and even short videos. You can later on share these photos with friends and family on social media.

The northern parts of Romania are worthy of a visit or two. Maramures, Bukovina and Moldova are three amazing Romanian regions that need to be in your travel itinerary. The first time we visited Bukovina we immediately fell in love with the landscapes and began to cherish the locals. This is the region most famous for its wooden monasteries, present in UNESCO cultural patrimony. Among the monasteries that you should visit, we can list Voronet, Moldovita, Sucevita, Arbore, Probota, Putna and Gura Humorului. Yet, there are many other hidden spiritual gems that you could find. The trick is to look with attention through the rubble and select the ideal places to visit. Some might impress, while others can leave you wanting more. Be patient and go with patience to your destination.

The Romanian cities are also amazing, worth visiting with friends and some members of your family. Seeing as city breaks represent popular travel experiences, it is important to know where to go and how to manage time. If you have enough time on your hands, you will be able to travel with excitement wherever you want. Some of the most visited Romanian cities are Bucharest, Iasi, Cluj Napoca, Timisoara, Suceava, Targu Mures, Alba Iulia and Constanta.

Each city comes with its distinct particularities, worth discovering. This is a good way to explore the Romanian urban spirit, which can lead to interesting experiences.
