The story of Dracula attracts a wide range of visitors; families with children will lap up discovering the legend of the infamous Count while literary fans will enjoy spotting the influences that inspired Bram Stoker. Bran Castle, along with the many other beguiling period buildings to be found in rural Romania, will attract those who appreciate well-preserved, centuries-old architecture and traditional cultures.

Romania might be a EU member but so much of the country remains in a bucolic time warp. Here you will find a land of densely forested mountains, deep gorges, medieval towns, Black Sea resorts and fairytale castles. Stay in Communist-era hotels where the service has still not improved or enjoy the standards of more international-class hotels.

Most Romania holidays will be concentrated in its capital, Bucharest, a city of contrasts with the colossal Palace of Parliament and glorious Belle Epoque architecture. Elsewhere, a major draw for visitors is a tour of Transylvania, immortalised in legend, literature and film as the land of Dracula. Its rugged mountains and inviting valleys are home to medieval towns and idyllic villages, where locals still wear traditional costume as they walk beside their horse-drawn carts. 

Regent Recommends

Unleash your imagination as you visit fanciful Bran Castle, inspiration as the abode of  vampires, but soon you will be charmed by beautifully preserved hilltop Sighisoara and the walled town of Sibiu crammed with colourful houses.

Make time to visit the painted monasteries of Bucovina where colourful frescoes cover the exterior and interior of the buildings. After a busy holiday to Romania why not treat your aching limbs to a well deserved dip in a thermal spring or mud bath?
