Romania, one of the most fascinating countries in Eastern Europe, is home to medieval villages and fairy-tale castles. Its history, embellished with romantic legends and religious conquests, makes it a truly unique area to visit.
Join Laura as she takes you into the Carpathian Mountain country to explore the folklore behind Transylvania. You?ll visit Brasov first, the largest city, and a hotspot ski resort town. It is here that you?ll also see Council Square?s church and Bran Castle (commonly known as Dracula?s Castle). Here you can explore the legend and even visit a museum of medieval arts, filled with wood carvings and ornate furniture.
Next, Laura will take you to the picturesque walled-in town of Sighisoara. Aside from the history, you can find great local shops for Romanian clothing and souvenirs. A short trip from the town, you?ll come to Peles Castle, housing Europe?s largest collections of artwork.
From medieval ruins to Dracula?s castle, gorgeous landscapes to local crafts, Romania is full of surprises.
