Romania might be an EU member but much of the country remains a bucolic time warp. Here travellers discover a land of densely forested mountains, deep natural gorges, perfectly-preserved medieval towns and a world-class selection of castles, ranging from the fairytale to the imposing, dark Gothic.

Transylvania’s rugged mountains and inviting valleys are home to Saxon churches and idyllic villages, where locals still wear traditional dress as they walk beside horse-drawn carts. Perched on a clifftop in the heart of the region (and at the top of many Romania visitor’s hit list), Bran Castle stokes the imagination as home of the country’s most famous resident, Count Dracula.

Travellers with an interest in Soviet-era history can trade the vampiric legends for evidence of Ceausescu’s communist regime in Bucharest. The capital, Bucharest, is a city of contrast with the colossal Palace of Parliament and glorious belle époque architecture. Tree-lined boulevards, orthodox churches, 18th-century monasteries and well-manicured parks vie for attention.

Romania's legend of Dracula holds an appeal for a variety of travellers, and there's something to enchant everyone in this country. Children will lap up discovering the legend of the infamous Count, while literary fans are appeased with the chance to explore and walk through the towns and landscapes which inspired Bram Stoker. We even run a Halloween in Transylvania small group tour each year which explores the history of the legend and visits the key sites during the festivities of Halloween.

Fergus's Tips
1
For a unique sleep, stay at the boutique Castle Daniel, a centuries-old castle steeped in Transylvanian history blending original detail with modern furnishings.
2
Visit the painted medieval monasteries in the Bucovina region, boasting 15th- and 16th-century frescoes.
3
Thrill-seekers should drive the legendary, winding Transfagarasan highway through the Carpathian Mountains.
