Welcome to Romania
Romania Holidays, Flights and City Breaks
Romania is a country that has survived an explosive and tumultuous past but today, Romania has turned a corner, and now it has never been in such good shape.
Over the years, Romania has emerged as a popular holiday destination for many Europeans and it is now competing with the likes of Greece, Italy, Spain and Bulgaria. Destinations such as Saturn, Mangalia, Venus, Olimp, Constanta and Mamaia, which are sometimes referred to as the Romanian Riviera are among the most popular attractions in Romania during the summer months while Valea Prahovei and Poiana Braşov are popular among foreign visitors during the winter.
The Transylvania cities of Cluj-Napoca, Sibiu, Miercurea Ciuc, Târgu Mureș and Braşov have become major tourist attractions for visitors to Romania, partly because oftheir medieval atmosphere and their castles.
Romania’s rural tourism is focused on folklore and traditions and it has become an important alternative recently and it has been targeted to promote sites including the Painted Churches of Northern Moldovia, Bran and Dracula’s Castle and the Wooden Churches of Maramureș.
Sibiu, which is a city that was built by the Saxons with its cobble-stoned streets and its colourful houses, is definitely a must-see for any adventurous visitor to this nation. One of Romania’s most sacred monuments in Transylvania, Hunyad Castle can and should be visited in Hunedoara.
The Romanian Seaside is the most developed tourist region of the country. In 2009, the Black Sea area saw 1.3 million tourists visit it.
Bucharest is the top city to visit in Romania.
Romania’s largest city, Bucharest is located in the southeast of the country on the banks of the Dâmbovita River, which flows into the Argeş River, which is a tributary of the Danube.
Bucharest as is well-known for its wide, tree-lined boulevards, its stunning Belle Époque buildings and it has a reputation for the high life. Today, Bucharest is a bustling metropolis, which everybody has to see.
You will have to visit Calea Victoriei (Victory Avenue). It is Bucharest’s oldest and arguably the Romanian capital’s most charming street.
You have to make your way to the Arch of Triumph. The Arch of Triumph was initially built of wood in 1922, in order to honour the bravery of Romanian soldiers who fought in the First World War. Bucharest’s eye-catching Arch of Triumph was completed in Deva granite in 1936. The arc stands at an impressive 85 feet-high and it is definitely one for the photo album.
A trip to Revolution Square (Piata Revolutiei) should be on the cards for all you history enthusiasts. This square in the heart of Bucharest gained worldwide notoriety in 1989 when Nicolae Ceausescu’s final moments in power were broadcast around the entire world.
Revolution Square has played an important role in the lives of so many Romanians as it is the place where Romanians meet during good times and bad, and you could be there too.
The Romanian capital is a joy to visit. What are you waiting for?
