From Transylvania to the Danube Delta
Romania is a stunning land of fairy-tale castles, beautiful towns, rural traditions and great countryside. We’ll take you to the historic sites and then go far beyond. Our Romania tour is an exciting encounter with one of Europe’s most enchanting destinations.
From the capital Bucharest we head into Transylvania, home of the Dracula legend. Here we visit some exceptionally well-preserved towns built when the Saxons dominated the region. We’ll see many magnificent churches and well-preserved merchants’ houses here.
Further into the trip we explore the rural heritage of the country, staying in small villages where people still use horse and carts to get around. We stay as guests of local families, an ideal way to learn about life here. The painted monasteries in Bucovina are a sight to behold with elaborate frescoes of Biblical scenes decorating their walls.
In the Danube Delta we stay deep in the backwaters of a traditional community in order to explore this stunning region properly.
Romania has many spectacular sites, from ‘Dracula’s castle’ to fortified churches. However the welcome that we receive in the villages is likely to be your most enduring memory. These encounters will offer you the best chance to really get to know this charming country.
