We are pleased to repeat this excellent journey which features the varied landscapes of this Eastern European gem. Although the pastoral lands of Transylvania are most well known as the home of the fictional Count Dracula, Romania is a country with so much more to offer. Join us as we explore the influences of Romanian, Hungarian and German cultures that existed side-by-side for hundreds of years. Included are a host of UNESCO World Heritage Sites, 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 begins in Bucharest, the capital city which earned the title “Paris of the East” in the 1920’s. In the larger centres we’ll see the architectural influence of the communist era alongside the more attractive traditional architecture. In the rural areas we’ll see people following age old traditions. This step back in time is sure to enchant even the most experienced traveller.
