3 Days Trip to Romania/Bulgaria from Istanbul?

Jump to last reply

I will be on 9 days trip to Turkey ending at Istanbul for February 2013 and I have extra 3 days for which I can choose to visit Romania or Bulgaria (or alternatively I can extend my stay in Istanbul to explore the city in depth).

I have done some reading on both Romania and Bulgaria and it does seems that Romania offer much more in terms of sightseeing on the Transylvania region and nice medieval towns such as Brasov, Sighisoara and Sibiu as well as great castle such as Peles Castle. My question is should I opt for Romania for a 3 days stay and which town should I go? What is on my mind now is probably fly from Istanbul to Bucharest in the afternoon and subsequently take a train to Brasov to spend a night there, from there on I can do day trips to Peles Castle and Sighisoara on the next couple of days before returining to Bucharest in the evening to catch a flight back to Istanbul for a night stay before leaving. My only concerns will it be pretty cold during the winter months of February in Romania or Bulgaria and if there is any better alternative.

Any suggestions are welcomed.
