Romania may be the odd country where more people know one specific region than the country itself. That’s because Transylvania is in Romania, which, if you’re not big into the works of Bram Stoker, is home to the infamous Count Dracula. And yes, Transylvania has Dracula tours.
And while scenic, Transylvania is far from the only thing you should see in Romania, whether that means touring Byzantine frescoes in the churches of Moldavia or checking out the underground glacier in the Scarisoara ice cage.
You can also lose yourself in the bars, restaurants, and art scene of Bucharest, especially with the help of our in-depth city guide. You’ll find a city that’s rediscovered its cultural identity after years under Soviet rule, and though it’s come a long way still feels authentic and a little bit undiscovered.
