Budapest to Bucharest SummaryAdd to Shortlist
Budapest's grand architecture and boulevards evoke a time gone by, while glamorous stores and glitzy restaurants make this one of Europe's truly great cities.
Home to some of the most famous vineyards in Eastern Europe, the beautifully preserved Baroque town of Eger is also famous for its impressive 13th-century castle.
Rich in tradition, folklore and ancient superstitions that have remained unchanged for hundreds of years, the region of Maramures is a land that seems frozen in time.
Set in the mystical and enchanting region of Transylvania, the medieval masterpiece of Sighisoara effortlessly conjures images of haunted castles, gothic churches and vampires.
Best known for its heavily fortified medieval church, the charming village of Viscri offers a great opportunity to get in touch with the local Roma community.
The city of Brasov was once a major medieval trading centre and today its gothic Black Church and ornate building are still protected by massive city walls.
Bucharest, Romania's beautiful capital city, likes big things. It's home to one of Europe's biggest squares and its enormous Palace of Parliament is the second largest building in the world.
