Romania lies to the north of the Balkan Peninsula, on the western shores of the Black Sea and bordered by Bulgaria to the south, Serbia to the southwest, Hungary to the northwest, Moldova to the northeast and Ukraine both the north and the east. The Carpathian Mountains cross the centre of the country, leaving a swath of exposed rocky peaks surrounded by groves of pine and deciduous trees, and stretches of bright green meadows.Europe's second-longest river, the Danube, courses through ten countries before marking Romania's southern border with Bulgaria and emptying into the Black Sea.
Why Book a Walking Holiday to Romania?
As well as its great natural beauty, mountain landscapes and unspoiled countryside, Romania has a rich cultural heritage. For centuries, peasant culture thrived in hundreds of self-sufficient villages, where traditional crafts such as bread-making, pottery, tanning and weaving were honed to an art. Folk museums are a must-see and many isolated hamlets, where the old ways are still practised, are museums in their own right. Over recent decades Romania had undergone significant developments making for some stunning contrasts. In Transylvania, the land that gave us Dracula, see jaw-dropping castles pitched on rocky hilltops. In Bucharest, visit Ceaucescu’s equally jaw-dropping People’s Palace and in lively Cluj, enjoy the hospitality of bars and cafes now thriving behind the Gothic and baroque facades.
