Best of Romania

Begin your Bucharest Tour and drive into the wild Transylvanian landscape, immersing yourself in traditional culture and medieval lore. At Curtea de Arges, visit the 14th-century monastery haunted by tales of sorrow. Stop for photos at Poienari Castle, Vlad the Impaler's throne, who forced captured nobility into hard labor to rebuild his fortress. Cross the Carpathians over the amazing Transfagarasan road.

Visit the heavily-fortified Saxon city of Sibiu, then proceed to Sighisoara, a gorgeous inhabited citadel. Take a detailed walking tour of the Old Town, have coffee at the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler, and end the day in the historically significant town of Alba Iulia.

Next, discover Surdesti, among the tallest wooden churches globally; tour the ancient salt mines at Turda, and visit the modern urban and academic center of Cluj Napoca. Drive north to Maramures, and experience a living medieval landscape. Tour the bright Merry Cemetery, visit the woodcarver's home, and learn about his unique generational trade. Overnight in a family-owned B&B and enjoy home-cooked dinners.

Visit the famous UNESCO World Heritage painted monasteries, renowned for their color schemes and priceless frescoes. Journey through the spectacular Bicaz Gorges, a seven-kilometer stretch with towering cliffs on both sides of the road. In Brasov, admire the Black Church, the Old Town Square, and the legendary St. Nicholas Church.

Proceed to Bran Castle, renovated in the 1920s by Maria, Queen of Romania. Witness the royal opulence of the 19th-century Peles Castle, and wind down your tour at the 17th-century Sinaia Monastery.
