Cultural and historical heritage

Romania’s history and geographical position have created a complex multicultural heritage easily observed in the architecture variety, the presence of strong ethnic groups and even the delicious culinary recipes that change according to the historical region. This multicultural diversity is an attraction by itself and is best observed visiting at least two historical regions, for instance Transylvania and Bucovina. Romania has many castles and palaces, beautiful museums, countless medieval fortresses and Antiquity ruins. No matter where you are in Romania, you will definitely have cultural attractions around you waiting to be explored. Check some of them on www.uncover-romania.com

Rural traditions

The traditional countryside is one of our favorite attractions in Romania. Where else in Europe would you find so many rustic houses, idyllic landscapes and kind people?

Romania’s villages are more than worth a visit and even a full vacation if you want to relax with your family, breathing fresh air, eating only home cooked food with fresh ingredients and uncovering a lost world of traditions that fascinates even Prince Charles who visits frequently the traditional houses he owns in Transylvania.

Nature

The Carpathians and the Danube Delta are the highlights of Romania’s natural attractions. Each of them conserves a rich biodiversity and rare landscapes with true wilderness sights. While the Danube Delta is mainly accessible by boat, the Carpathians are best discovered on foot choosing one or more of their many hiking trails that vary from easy walks for all the family to challenging tours of their highest peaks. We will advise you on the best routes considering your physical condition and availability.
