Tourism is speeding up quickly in Romania, and it’s not just vampire buffs. This Eastern European nation has beaches and mountains that rival nearby Italy or France, with far cheaper traveler costs. Hike and ski the Carpathians, or get spooked in gothic Transylvanian. Tour churches in Moldavia for their Byzantine frescos, or gawk at the underground glacier in the Scarisoara ice cave. After dark, hit the lively pubs of Bucharest and cap the night with some sausages and plum brandy. We can guide you to study the language, spend a night in a monastery or castle, and emerge free of vampire bites by morning.
