A holiday in Romania is a breath of fresh, country air – it’s your perfect opportunity to discover an entirely different place. Perhaps even rediscover a time you thought had gone forever.
Clip clopping along in a horse-drawn cart, watching harvesters at work in the nearby fields, is one of the best ways of seeing Romania. It’s a rural idyll that has been shaped gently by the course of time. So you can expect to wander quietly through slumbering Saxon villages or lively little Transylvanian towns and immerse yourself in an age that has all but disappeared from the rest of Europe.
You will discover authentic villages surrounded by flower-strewn meadows. In Bucharest you'll find the Peasant museums, extraordinary wooden farm buildings in Maramures and the painted churches in Moldavia. And if you're very lucky, you may be invited to attend a traditional country wedding with colourful costumes and fiery Romany music.
We also recommend you forego some of the obvious luxury. Holidays to Romania can also include staying with a family, in their own home. It is probably one of the best ways ever of experiencing the true essence of Romania; the lifestyle of its charming and hospitable people – and the irresistible, home-cooked flavours of its regional dishes!
