Winter Wonderland in Romania

Coming to Romania for the winter holidays? Get ready for an exciting and fun trip in a wonderful country!

Winter has certainly shown no mercy and has come to Romania in its full power. The low temperatures have affected the normal human activities. It is harder to drive on the snowy roads. We have to be extra careful while on the road. There are new challenges to consider and not ignore. As you probably noticed by now, the road are icy and snowy, which present difficulties that have to be overcome with attention.

Snow is pretty much everywhere and especially in the mountains. This time of year is fairly challenging, as we have to face a lot of cold, freezing temperatures and the streets are more slippery and prone to accidents. Nonetheless, it’s not all bad. Winter has some a pretty amazing side and that can be fully experienced within the mountains.

Why? Because in those regions, snow looks truly magical and you also have the opportunity to go skiing or ice skating! These are fun activities that simply delight. It does wonders for a simple travel experience, making it quite special.

5 easy steps for a winter wonderland in Romania

Gather information. That’s right, the first step consists of researching and reading about the touristic possibilities in Romania. Is it your first time here? Then the more reason to begin your “investigation”. Luckily, there are hundreds of websites and travel blogs devoted solely to discovering Romania. Some people will explain in detail their experiences and what they visited and a short review of that location.

In this manner, you will have an idea of what are the things you’d like to see. Perhaps it’s a medieval castle, a picturesque mountain village, the wonders of the capital or the beautifully painted monasteries in Bukovina and the list can continue.

Set up an itinerary. After you’ve made a list with the things you’d like to see in Romania for the winter, the next step is creating the travel route. There is a high chance that the places you want to visit may be positioned in different corners of the country. This means that you have to choose one of them, which is closer to the rest of the desired destinations. If you have a couple of days off, most likely you don’t want to spend them only on the road (since driving can be a hassle during winter).

Search for good deals. The holidays are always a very busy period. Everybody wants to get somewhere as fast as possible. We all want to find the best present to give to our loved ones and the perfect ingredients for the family dinner. This means there will be a lot of agitation and last minute buys are never the best investments.

Thus, it couldn’t hurt to begin your “hunt” now. Look for some good deals on airplane tickets and hotels in Romania (preferably with a good restaurant nearby). If you search carefully, you will really be able to save yourself a lot of money. They can be later used for more fun activities!

Find the proper car. Since the whole point of this vacation is to travel from one location to another, you will be needing a reliable vehicle. Depending on the number of passengers, how much luggage you are carrying, you have to look for the appropriate model. A handy solution would be to opt for rental services. Why? Because they are professionals and can deliver an excellent model that you will enjoy driving. AutoBoca can be of real help here. How exactly? We shall explain in the following lines, which can be quite useful.

Have fun. Planning a holiday can be stressful as you want to make sure that everything is perfect not only for you but for the rest of the passengers as well. No need to stress and even if not all goes according to plan, this won’t mean that your vacation is ruined. Just enjoy the beauties of Romania and make the most of your days off! This country is more than ready to greet people from all over the world.

Great welcoming cars for an incredible touristic experience this winter in Romania

A vacation means that it’s time for relaxing, unwinding and sharing beautiful moments with people close to us. And why not do all that this winter in Romania? The Carpathian Mountains are extremely beautiful this time of year and you will be utterly surprised by the locations you will find here. The majority of tourists prefer mountain resorts like Vatra Dornei, Pojorata, Sinaia, Azuga, Predeal, Campulung Moldovenesc, Gura Humorului or Poiana Brasov. 

These are usually the places where people can have fun and discover fascinating things about Romania. Not only that but you will have several ski slopes close by, equipped properly for skiing or snowboarding. This is a fun way to stay warm and also keep yourself in shape! Of course, safety comes first so make sure that you follow the guidelines of the specialized personnel.

And after all that fun on the slopes, you may want to slow things down a little and venture into the magical world of the Romanian cuisine. Your taste buds will be extremely grateful for deciding to try some of our best dishes. Depending on the area that you chose to visit, you can try some local specialties (it may be a different type of soup, stew, dessert or an incredibly delicious steak). Also, the wines are incredible in Romania as we have our very own vineyards. 

If you arrived in a mountain resort in the northern part of the country (like Vatra Dornei, Campulung Moldovenesc, Gura Humorului) it would be a real shame not to visit some of the most valued historical constructions. Suceava Fortress, Voronet and Humor Monastery, the wooden churches of Maramures are just a couple of the main attractions that deserve your attention. It’s also a chance to learn about Romanian history and discover a fun and wonderful world.

You can begin with exploring the city of Brasov and its surroundings (Zarnesti village, Rasnov Citadel, Bran Castle) or visit Peles Castle in Sinaia and at the end of your trip, you could spend a couple of hours in Bucharest also. You will be surprised by the wonders hidden in the capital.
