Why you'll love this trip
  • Step into another world as you walk through ancient halls and hear the myths and legends surrounding some of the most impressive castles in Eastern Europe - Hunedoara, Bran and Peles.
  • Dine like royalty in Azuga, where you’ll share lunch with bubbles after a tour of the town’s winery – the sparkling tipples were the favourite of Romania’s last monarch, King Michael I.
  • Dive deep into one of the oldest salt mines in Europe, in use for about 2,000 years. Spanning more than 43 kilometers Turda Salt Mine contains a huge array of attractions - from an amusement park to a contemporary art museum to an underground lake.
  • Explore the charming cobbled streets and medieval marvels of Sighisoara – a UNESCO World Heritage city with historical churches, quaint cafes and museums, and a deep history dating back to the Romans.

Romania (Transylvania) is a real surprise - forget your preconceptions. Rich history and culture, beautiful towns and countryside, and varied cuisine. All brought to life by a superbly organised small group tour offering a real insight into the country. Led in our case by Raluca Bolnavu, the perfect guide in every way

Totally concur with David ‘s comments . Romania was unexpectedly engaging and thoroughly enjoyable . The towns we visited had intriguing histories – past and recent. Raluca was the most delightful guide with a real passion for her country and preservation of its traditions and environment. There was an interesting variety of accommodation which was well chosen for location/character.
