Best places to visit in Romania

  • Sinaia: Home to Peleș Castle, this mountain resort is located at the base of the Carpathian Mountains about an hour and a half’s drive from Bucharest. As well as being able to visit this 19th-century castle, learning about the history of the royal family of Romania, you’ll also be able to pop into the Sinaia Monastery which dates back three hundred years.  
  • Brasov: One of many medieval towns in Romania, Brasov is one of the best-preserved and it is well worth a visit with its mixture of architecture, from gothic to baroque, showing the historical journey of the town. Here you can visit the gothic Black Church as well as take in the beauty of the Carpathian Mountains that form the backdrop to Brasov.  
  • Sibiu: If gothic villages appeal to you then Sibiu will not disappoint. Situated in Transylvania this is one of the oldest villages in the region and played an important role in Saxon history. Wander around the UNESCO-protected Great Square and cross over the Bridge of Lies. Immerse yourself in the history of the village with its 17th-century buildings and churches.   

Winter in 2021 in Romania

Winter turns Romania into a wonderland of snowy mountain scenery. Wrap up warmly and take yourself to Bucharest to experience a visit to the Bucharest Christmas market with wooden stalls lining the streets. Sip mulled wine and enjoy the festive spirit as you wander through the market. Christmas markets appear in a number of cities in Romania but if you want to escape the city you could consider visiting Bâlea Lake and treat yourself to a stay in the ice hotel by the lake.
