The Most Beautiful Roads in the Carpathian Mountains
Romania has something to offer to passionate drivers and mountain climbers as well. According to the Top Gear team, we have the Perfect Road.
The view you’ll see while driving
up and down the mountain will not be done justice by any picture as much as
we’d like. In the early hours of the mourning, the top hill is usually cold and
foggy from the Bâlea
For a few months of the year around Bâlea Lake, there is an Ice hotel where you can enjoy the best of what Romania has to offer in the winter months. That includes all the amenities any good accommodation usually offers.
“Hundreds of corners, dissecting a section of eye-wateringly pretty Carpathian mountain range”
is not the only great road in Romania. The Transalpine road presents another
unique landscape and good driving experience.
To visit this incredible road, the city of Sibiu, and see the great landscapes I’ve described even if you don’t have a car, you can book our tour. We’ll pick you up at your accommodation in Bucharest and show you everything.

Nature and Water in the Danube Delta
With over 23 ecosystems, the Danube Delta houses numerous plants and wildlife. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, it is one of the most well-preserved deltas in all of Europe. It’s also one of the main reasons it is part of our list of the best of what Romania has to offer.
It takes up over 5000 square
kilometers, giving a home to over 300 species of birds that mostly feed with
the 45 species of fresh-water fish.
You’ll be shocked by how different the landscape is to what you might be used to. Boats are the main transportation system across the delta. We recommend you visit during the springtime so the mosquitos won’t be a big issue.
Many traditional guesthouses and floating hotels can give you a taste of
a fresh fish specialty and many local foods.
To spend at least a couple of hours in the extraordinary natural oasis of the Danube Delta, you can book our tour now.
You can also start your own adventure
in Tulcea, a port that is only two-hour’ drive from Constanta. This brings us
to the next suggestion on our list.
The Casino in Constanta
and the Sea Side Relaxation
One easy recognizable Romanian historic moment is the Casino
building in Constanta. It was built in Art Nouveau architecture and inaugurated
in 1910. It is iconic because it’s an eye-catching two-story building with
impressive architectural elements, placed
on the edge of the sea.
The architects incorporated a maritime theme on the front
and the interior decorations, starting
with the surreal shell windows facing the Black Sea. It’s what makes it the
best of what Romania has to offer in terms of historical buildings.
During the First and Second World War, it was used as a war hospital and then in the communist era became an administrative building.
Unfortunately, after 1988 the building has not been restored
because of the substantial financial burden it would represent. It’s a dramatic
end for a building with over one hundred years of history.
