BLOG President's Pick Romania and Moldova's past history has not always been more

For 2019, our enchanting journey through Romania is now combined with the truly unique Republic of Moldova. For almost thirty years, these two lands have been free of the Soviet yoke but each has developed in its own way. Romania, known for the pastoral lands of Transylvania and the home of the legendary Count Dracula, has much to offer; the influences of Romanian, Hungarian and German cultures that existed side-by-side for hundreds of years, awe-inspiring UNESCO World Heritage Sites and the eye-catching Painted Monasteries of Moldavia. Tiny by world standards, Moldova is nestled against the eastern border of Romania. Part of Romania until 1940, the country was part of the Soviet Union until 1991. Visiting Moldova is a little like stepping back in time to the Soviet era and beyond. Join us as we discover the unique heritage and sites of these two lands. By design this will be a small group; we strongly recommend that you book early.
