Romania Travel

Romania is located in Southeastern Europe bordering the Black Sea between Bulgaria and Ukraine. Travelling in Romania, the EU’s newest member, is like being somewhere between an eternal Halloween and the Led Zeppelin IV cover that features a twig-carrying farmer. Even in cities where Audis zoom across highways under video-camera speed traps, Romanian life is defined by its sweet country heart. Most anywhere, you’ll spot horse-drawn buggies crossing the (often cratered) paved roads – up green mountains, past cone-shaped haystacks and herds of sheep – which bounce along as if the roads themselves are aliens to the land. Bucharest is the capital of Romania. Transylvania and Moldavia constitute the northern half of the country.

Romania’s main attractions include Black Sea Coast, the Carpathian Mountains and Transylvania. The Black Sea Coast is popular for its white sandy beaches and offers a perfect experience for families. The Carpathian Mountains are beautiful and covered by dense forests which offer skiing opportunities. The population of Romania is around 22.5 million and the official language being spoken is Romanian. The other popular languages are Hungarian and German.
