This past winter, my husband and I spent a little over two months in Romania. We based ourselves in Brasov, the capital of Transylvania, and a city ideally placed for exploring the country. The pastel buildings and old winding streets made every snowfall that much more beautiful. In many ways, Romania is the perfect romantic destination — the following photos illustrate why.
