Romania Holidays from Exeter International
Is Romania the country that has more misconceptions about it than any other, even Russia? We think so! Isn’t Romania about Dracula or orphans or gypsies? Yes, it can be about these things, but also many more.
Romania is nostalgic, she is the way we think we remember life before the Blackberry, when holidays were holidays.
A Latin country, surrounded by Slav neighbours, Romania has always been different. Romania is sensory – she is about prolific award-winning New Wave cinema, and starry, starry nights in the countryside. About drinking tuica with complete strangers in a Transylvanian village, eating smoky salata de vinete (aubergine caviar) with fresh rosi (tomatoes) and trying a real shepherds cheese in the Carpathian mountains.
Romania is hearing a soul-rendering gypsy violin, or coming across a wild village wedding celebration. It is admiring the beauty of Saxon towns like Sibiu, Brasov and Cluj, and the painted monasteries in Bucovina.
You can also discover the new vibrancy of Bucharest, completely different to the rest of the country. Yes, it has been described as “Paris eaten - and then spat out by Croydon” (Tanya Gold, The Guardian) but a weekend exploring the cobbled streets of Lipscani and meandering around Chismigu park is romantic.
“Wallpaper* weekenders should certainly nudge Bucharest up their must-visit list” (Nick Redman, Sunday Times Travel Magazine).
Holidays to Romania tailor-made for you
We recommend you spend a night in Bucharest before exploring the real Romania of myth and legend, Transylvania and Maramures, the oldest preserved peasant life in Europe, and the definition of bucolic. Who knows, you may even meet a Bulibasha (gypsy king) and never return…
April-June and September-October are, we think, the best times of year to go. High summer is very hot and winters are cold and snowy.
