The most famous and popular region in the country is Transylvania, which is famous for the castle of Count Dracula in Bran. Also popular are the medieval cities of Brasov, Sighisoara and Sibiu, unparalleled churches-strongholds, which are under the protection of UNESCO. In addition, the nature of Romania will not leave anyone indifferent – the bewitching snowy peaks of Fagaras, forests and fields, the runes of ancient cities and fortresses that are scattered everywhere. Here is the city of Sighisoara, where Vlad Tepes, nicknamed “Dracula”, was born. The sights of this city are the Clock Tower, now a museum, the Historical Museum, as well as the Gothic cathedral located on a hill. One of the most popular cities in Transylvania is Brasov with its main attraction – the Black Temple, which is built in the Gothic style. In addition, the Historical Museum and the Town Hall, built in the 15th century, as well as the churches of St. Bartholomew and St. Nicholas are of interest to visitors. In the vicinity of Bucharest there are: the Curtea de Arges Monastery in the vicinity of the city of the same name, the “Lord’s Church” of Biserica-Domneasca, the ruins of Zhidov’s castle near Campulung, the ruins of the castle of Vlad “Dracula” Tepes, beautiful monasteries in the Valcea district – Dintr-un-Lemn, Khurez and Govora, Mud Volcanoes and Minzelesti nature reserves with 34 salt caves in Buzău county, and Kornoi Fort. The oldest monastery in the country of Tismana in Gorj county, the wonderful city of Targu Jiu At the foot of the Bucej plateau in the Southern Carpathians, the famous Prahova Valley is located. The Bucegi massif is famous for its erosional sculptures, arising due to the winds constantly blowing here and the falling rains, which for centuries “carved” impressive images from the rocks, such as the Harp, the Old Man, the Sphinx and others. Also of interest is the so-called “cradle of the Romanian people” – an area in the north-west of the country called Transylvania, famous for its original culture, the beautiful mountain nature of the Carpathians and a large number of historical sites. Maramures County, which is one of the richest in mineral waters and the most mountainous regions of Romania, deserves special attention. The attraction of this region is Cimitirul-Vesel (“Merry Cemetery”), located in Sepynce. This is a unique memorial building in which death and funeral rites give reason for optimism – funny epitaphs, original carved monuments and painted crosses. The largest port on the Black Sea coast of Romania and the second largest city in the country is Constanta. Here are located such historical monuments as the monument to Ovid, the Roman wall of the 6th century, the Genoese lighthouse of the 13th century, the Roman mosaic, the Church and the Orthodox Cathedral. We also recommend visiting city museums, such as the Museum of Archeology, the Museum of Natural History, the Museum of Ethnography, the Astronomical Museum and the Museum of Navigation.

In the capital of Romania, urban transport consists of modern buses, trolleybuses, trams, as well as three metro lines. Metro cards can be purchased at the ticket office at the entrance. The metro schedule is from 5:00 to 23:30. In Bucharest, the names of metro stations are not always visible, as they are indicated on a separate sign, which is rather impractical. It is also possible to get to your destination by taxi with “checkers” on the side, payment is made according to the meter. Private taxi drivers do not have meters, there are signs “RO” or “P” on the roof. Payment in them is more, but they are more affordable, the price is negotiable.
