Advice on 9-10 day itinerary in Romania

Jump to last reply

In July, my family (including 2 teenagers) will be taking a train from Budapest to Oradea and will pick up a rental car there. We'll drive to Vadu Izei . This is our itinerary so far:

Day 1-2 - Maramures - Explore the wooden churches, Merry Cemetery, the villages, the local artisans.

Day 3-4 - Bucovina - Drive over the Prislop Pass to Bucovina. See Sucevita, Moldovita and Voronet. Is the new customs and traditions museum a must-see?

Day 5 - Sighisoara - Drive from Bucovina through Bicaz Gorge and Red Lake to Sighisoara. See the town, the clock tower, Saxon village Biertan. Is the torture museum interesting? Spend the night.

Day 6 - Sibiu - See the sights. Spend the night.

Day 7 - Brasov - Black church, Bran Castle, Premjer, Rasnov Ruins. Spend the night.

Day 8 - Sinaia & Bucharest - Go to Sinaia to see Peles Castle. Then return car to Bucharest OTOPENI airport in late afternoon or early evening and spend the night at the Phoenicia Express Hotel because it's close to the airport.

Day 9- Early flight out of Bucharest.

Do you know how long it will take to get from Oradea to Vadu Izei, from Vadu Izea to Bucovina, from Bucovina to Sighisoara and from Brasov to Bucharest? Is there anything on this itinerary that we should add or drop? We like villages, UNESCO sites, architecture and monasteries. We may forego seeing Eger Hungary to add one more day in Romania. If so, where should we spend more time? With the driving to and from Bucovina, will we have enough time in Bucovina? Do you have any hotels or pensions recommendations? Has anyone stayed at Phoenicia Express Hotel? Is it OK?

Many thanks for your advice.
