Romania Travel Guide

Romania Tours Highlights

  • Bran Castle: Often associated with the Dracula legend, Bran Castle is a must-see for anyone touring Romania. Perched atop a rock, this 14th-century fortress offers guided tours through its mysterious rooms and secret passages, providing a glimpse into the country's medieval past.
  • Peles Castle: Nestled in the picturesque Carpathian Mountains, Peles Castle is a masterpiece of German Renaissance architecture. Tours to this former royal residence reveal opulent interiors and an extensive collection of art and armor. It's a highlight in many destination tours for its fairy-tale appearance.

  • The Historic Center of Sighisoara: A well-preserved medieval town, Sighisoara's cobbled streets, and colorful buildings make it a favorite for guided tours. The birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, the town is steeped in history and charm.

Romania Tours Travel Tips

  • Comfortable hiking or walking shoes are a must on this travel adventure. Because you will be treading over rocky terrain and cobblestones, you need sturdy, close-toed footwear.
  • Try to arrive early in the city where you begin your journey. That way you can acclimate yourself to your new environment and get used to the difference in time zones.
  • Tours to Romania often take place between April and October.
  • Peak travel times for a Romania tour are between June and August, or during the summer.
  • If you wish to avoid crowds, a trip planned in the spring or fall is best. Temperatures are pleasant during these periods and average around 68 degrees Fahrenheit.
  • To have access to the Internet, carry a universal plug adapter.
  • Wear conservative clothes in the summer, choosing lightweight long-sleeved blouses and shirts, and summer-friendly slacks and skirts.
  • Keep documents, such as your passport, close to you, so you can access them immediately.
  • Share your travel itinerary with friends and family so they can easily find and contact you, if necessary.

Romania Tours Things To Do

  • Bucharest, Romania
    Bucharest, Romania

    Known as the largest city and capital in Romania, Bucharest is the ideal location to start a Romania tour, as it features interesting contrasts of the new and old. One of the city's major attractions is the Palace of the Parliament, which was built in the 1980s when the Communist dictator and president, Nicolae Ceausescu, ruled.

    Best Time To Visit

    Choose to see Bucharest during the shoulder season of spring or autumn, when temperatures are pleasanter and crowds are fewer.

     

    You Should Know

    Resembling the Arch of Triumph in Paris, the city's Triumphal Arch was constructed in 1935. In fact, from the beginning of the twentieth century until about 1930, Bucharest was known as Little Paris. Residents, at the time, wore French-styled clothes and spoke French as well. Today, many music artists call Bucharest home, as it serves as the hub for many of the world's recording companies.

  • Constanta
    Constanta

    Sitting on the shore of the Black Sea, Constanta is a city whose history goes back over 2,000 years. You can learn more about this city's illuminating past by viewing exhibits at the National History and Archaeology Museum in Constanta.

  • Bran Castle
    Bran Castle

    No tour of Romania is considered complete without a visit to Bran Castle – a stronghold that holds the legend of Dracula. The Transylvanian castle, which is about 15 miles southwest of Brasov, is a well-known landmark and monument in Romania. Count Dracula, to whom the castle's legends are based, first appeared in Irish writer Bram Stoker's novel, "Dracula," written in 1897. The Dracula myth comes from people's beliefs in vampires and ghosts in Transylvania during the period.

    Best Time To Visit

    See the Bran Castle from March to May or from September to November, when the crowds subside.

     

    You Should Know

    The writer of the "Dracula" novel, Bram Stoker, never set foot in Romania. He was able to depict Dracula's Castle from an illustration in the book, "Transylvania: Its Product and People," which was written by Charles Boner and published in London by Longmans in 1865.

  • Sighisoara
    Sighisoara

    With its colorful buildings, pedestrian-friendly Old Town, and fascinating historical sites, Sighisoara, which is also a UNESCO World Heritage site, is a delight. Located in Transylvania, the town's history spans all the way back to the twelfth century. At that time, the king of Hungary was pleading for the Saxons to migrate to the area to defend its borders. The Saxon settlement led to the building of this fortified and fairytale city.

    Best Time To Visit

    Avoid summer crowds and opt to see Sighisoara in the spring or fall.

     

    You Should Know

    The town features some excellent museums, dedicated to Sighisoara's history, one of which is located in the town's clock tower. Climb up to the top of the tower to see the city from up high. A torture museum is also located next door. The colorful facades of the buildings make it a joy to stroll through and around Old Town. The site is also the birthplace of Vlad III, also called Vlad the Impaler, or Vlad Dracula. Vlad's father ruled nearby Wallachia. However, during Vlad's birth, his father was exiled in Transylvania.

  • Hasmas National Park – Bicaz Gorges
    Hasmas National Park – Bicaz Gorges

    Standing tall in Hasmas National Park, the Bicaz Gorges are 1,000-foot Jurassic limestone rocks that create one of the most spectacular road passes in the world. The road, Cheile Bicazului, is a popular scenic drive in the park. 

    Best Time To Visit

    Visit the Bicaz Gorges and Hasmas National Park in the spring or autumn, so you have more time to appreciate the scenery.

     

    You Should Know

    If you like to kayak or fly-fish, you will want to visit Red Lake (Lacul Rosu) in the park. A landslide, in 1837, created the beautiful lake. Hikers also like trekking around the body of water. You can see a unique view of Romania's Eastern Carpathian Mountains when you drive through the Bicaz Gorges.

  • Praid Salt Mine

    Located in the village of Praid, the Praid Salt Mine is one of the country's most famous mines. The mine's microclimate produces an average temperature of about 16 degrees Celsius or 61 degrees Fahrenheit. The mine is rich in the pale-blue gas, ozone, and is noted for its healing salts.

    Best Time To Visit

Mine treatments include climatotherapy and speleotherapy, which involve inhaling the mine's air. The practice of sports play is also encouraged in the mine. While in Praid, you can also visit the biggest saltwater lido in the country. People use the pool to find relief for rheumatism or related disorders.

  • Brasov
    Brasov

    The Gateway to Transylvania, the medieval city of Brasov is the most-visited city in Romania. People like the romantic and relaxing mood of Brasov, which features the narrow streets of cobblestone and thirteenth-century architecture. When sightseeing, start at the Piata Sfatului square, which actually has an "arc" design. Home to rainbow and ornate facades, the "square" is an ideal place to people-watch or take a peaceful stroll.

    Best Time To Visit

    Visit Brasov during the shoulder season of fall or spring. If you visit during the early morning hours, you will have the public space all to yourself.

     

    You Should Know

    Sibiu

    Known as the "City with Eyes," Sibiu is a well-loved tourist attraction, drawing interest from both foreign and domestic travelers.

Reviews for Romania Tours and Vacations

We are very pleased. Prices are typically lower than booking with the operator.

Santos M

There was more "down time" on this trip as compared to any other one I have taken. Romania is not known for their Christmas markets for a good reason. However, the tour guide was wonderful.

Mary R

Enjoyable trip, and our guide was excellent. However, this is not a Christmas Market tour. There were three small markets in total. It would have been better to describe this as a Romanian tour with the addition of three small Christmas markets. The hotel in Mercury Airport Hotel in Sibiu was a disaster. The meals were served cold, the staff was overly unfriendly (except for the man who ran the breakfast, he was very friendly and nice.). Multiple guests had people coming into their rooms at night because the room door didn't lock. The hotel itself was located far from any restaurant or shopping, so there was little to do.
