Bran Castle

Romania is a sovereign state that is part of the European Union. It is found in the area of ​​Central and Southeastern Europe, with a part of the coast on the Black Sea. It is a country in which we can find many natural spaces but also interesting cities that have a lot to offer tourists who want to know this country.

From the famous Bran Castle that is famous for relating to Count Dracula to cities like Bucharest or Sighisoara. Without a doubt it is a place where we can find many points to make incredible very varied getaways. That is why we are going to see everything that may interest us in Romania.

Bucharest

Bucharest

There is no trip to Romania that forgets the capital, Bucharest. This city that has suffered in the world wars and the dictatorship today is presented as a place with a lot of tourist potential. In it we can see incredible places such as Patriarchal Cathedral, seat of the Patriarch of the Romanian Orthodox Church. It is a set in which you can see the cathedral, the patriarchal palace or the chapels with beautiful iconography. Unirii Square is the largest, with a large fountain and is very central, so it is another place to visit. On the other hand, you have an old town with buildings such as the Stravopoleos Monastery or the Athenaeum in neoclassical style. Bucharest also has its Arc de Triomphe that reminds us of the one in Paris.

Bran Castle

Bran Castle is one of the totally essential visits if we talk about Romania. It's found near the city of Brasov in the Transylvania region and it has been associated with time to the myth of Bram Stoker's Dracula, although it is a beautiful medieval fortress. Actually Vlad the Impaler, the historical character that Dracula is inspired by, did not live in it, since it was only inhabited for a short period of time by Mary of Edinburgh. The castle is an interesting visit as it has up to sixty rooms and is situated on an elevated place. Inside you can see collections of furniture, armor and weapons from past centuries. This castle-turned-museum is a perfect visit to combine with a visit to the small town of Bran.

Sighisoara

Sighisoara

The beautiful city of Sighisoara is a World Heritage Site thanks to its medieval old town and is considered one of the most beautiful in Romania. It is in fact in this city that Vlad II and his wife settled, having a son, Vlad III known as Vlad Tepes or the Impaler for his great cruelty, leaving a legend that would inspire Bram Stoker. But in Sighisoara there is much more to see, since not only the house in which Vlad and his parents lived is a point of interest. It has a beautiful XNUMXth century Clock Tower that is the symbol of the city and the main entry and exit point to the old town. Inside is the History Museum and it has great views. Another point of interest is the XNUMXth century student staircase, a wooden staircase with a roof that connects the lower part with the upper part and through which the students passed. Nor should we forget to walk through its old town enjoying those colorful houses.

Sibiu

Sibiu

This city ​​is also located in the Transylvania region and it was one of the great citadels built by the Transylvanian Saxons in their quest to defend the borders of the Kingdom of Hungary. It had a great growth in the XNUMXth and XNUMXth centuries and today it is one of the cities not to be missed in Romania. In this city we can enjoy the Piata Mare, which is the largest square, and the Piata Mica, a small square but with great charm. It is possible to climb the tower of the town hall to enjoy the views of the city and pass under the Bridge of Liars or Podul Minciunilor. in Plaza Huet we will find the imposing evangelical cathedral of great beauty in Gothic style.

Sinaia

Sinaia

Here at the Sinaia population you can see the famous Peles CastleBuilt by King Carol I. This castle is beautiful and is set in a mountain setting that looks like something out of a tale. It is not open all year round so you have to check the visit beforehand to see if we can see it inside, but in any case the visit is worth it due to its great beauty. Nearby is also Pelisor Castle and hunting lodges. In the town we can see the Sinaia Monastery with a certain Byzantine style and go up to the mountains in the funicular.
