Plan Your Romania Vacation

Romania's high mountain ranges harbor magnificent castles perched on craggy promontories, charming villages lost in time, gorgeously painted monasteries and humble wooden churches, and a colorful history replete with fearsome heroes and terrible monsters. Largely a peasant country, it wasn't until after World War I that Romania began to modernize. Long years of Communist rule under a murderous leader did not encourage that process, but neither did it quell the lively Romanian spirit. A proud, welcoming people, Romanians are eager to share with visitors their country's rich history, natural beauty, and vibrant cities, helping to make this varied country one of the world's fastest-growing tourist destinations.
