With medieval castles like Bran or Hunedoara and 47 percent of natural and semi-natural ecosystems, Romania maintains its fame as the home land of count Dracula. Even if Vlad the Impaler is the most preeminent personality because of the association with the most famous vampire of all times, the country prides itself with great people who have made history in science, literature, the history of flight or sports. With UNESCO World Heritage Sites like the citadel of Sighisoara and mainly ecclesiastic monuments like the gothic wooden traditional churches of Maramures or Transylvania’s Saxon villages with fortified churches, Romania is a destination to inspire everyone.
Observe the natural landscape in the Carpathian arch at the Retezat National Park or follow the Danube on its way into the Black Sea and admire the biosphere reserve at the Danube Delta. Take pictures of an eroded cliff in the Bucegi Mountains which has the shape of The Spinx and smile in the most creative cemetery of Maramures, the Merry Cemetery. Visit the famous buildings of Bucharest, the Romanian Athenaeum built in 1888 or the impressive Palace of Parliament, known as the world’s largest civilian administrative building.
