Thoughts of Bram Stoker’s Dracula may cloud travellers’ perceptions of Romania. Don’t let that fictional connection deter you. Romania is a country steeped in art, history, and culture far beyond the legends and stories.

You may hear stories about Vlad III the Impaler, brave shepherds, and lie-detecting bridges. You have the opportunity of a lifetime to witness Romania’s reinvention from a peasant culture to a thriving country of technology. Yes, there are more castles than you have fingers, each with their own unique setting. Some of the oldest painted churches are found in towns that appear to have come straight out of Medieval times. Handicrafts are still honed by guilds in towns built by the Saxons. Natural rock formations in curious shapes and ice caves leave travellers spellbound. Waterfalls and national parks make for an adventurer’s dream vacation while museums and concert auditoriums bring culture to the masses.

Let Romania enchant you with its old-world charm, sights, and sounds on your next trip!
