We are pleased to repeat this excellent journey in 2018 which features the varied landscapes of this Eastern European gem including the pastoral lands of Transylvania, known mostly as the home of fictional Count Dracula. But this is a country with far more to offer and to experience. Join us as we explore the influences of Romanian, Hungarian and German cultures that existed side-by-side for hundreds of years. There are a host of UNESCO World Heritage Sites included, such as the eye-catching Painted Monasteries of Moldavia and the quaint villages, farms and traditional lifestyles found in the northern region of Maramures.
Our journey will begin in the capital, Bucharest, the city that earned the title 'Paris of the East' in the 1920’s. In the larger centres we will see the architectural influence of the communist era sharing the landscape with the more attractive traditional architecture and lifestyles. In the rural areas we will see people farming as they have done for centuries, following age old routines and rituals. Romania is like a 'time capsule' that will allow us to look into the past. This is truly a land to enchant even the most experienced traveller.
