Magnificent monasteries, stone churches, draw-dropping castles and medieval towns make up an unspoilt landscape of rolling hills and rugged mountains. Romania is known for the forested region of Transylvania, (the land that gave us Dracula) ringed by the Carpathian Mountains. The capital, Bucharest is full of energy and character. Well worth a visit are the medieval towns of Sibiu, Sighişoara and Braşov. The cobblestoned streets are filled with hip cafes and small bars and the Romanian people will offer a warm welcome to visitors keen to learn more about their culture.
