A relatively lesser popular country than its other European cousins, Romania is a wonderland for avid travellers. For years, its only claim to fame was Bram Stoker’s Dracula discoverable in Transylvania, a densely forested and somewhat mysterious region of the nation. Now it is on the road to becoming an extremely popular tourist destination in Europe, thanks to its natural beauty and worlds of culture. The places to see in Romania seem, at first glance, to be random and haphazard, but as you look closer you see a pattern emerging. Conquering countries and races have left their marks, but Romania has become stronger than any of them and has given the country a hue of its own. There are the perfectly-preserved medieval towns and the craggy Carpathian mountain range that stand sentinel over the cities. Also, there are lush green forest lands, mysterious castles, lovely mountain resorts, varied art communities, spellbinding architectural gems and, of course, the unbelievably picturesque countryside. Take a peek at what the top places to see in Romania are before you plan a trip there.
