On the Balkan Peninsula in southeast of Europe, there is the country of Romania. The country became famous thanks to Count Dracula. However, there is more to it- such as amazing cities, mountains, or a nature area protected by the UNESCO - the Delta of the Danube. In our photogallery, today we visit the towns of Arada, Brasov, Bran, Rasnov, Tulcea, Maimai sea resort, Bucharest, and Sibia. Also, we take a look at the legendary Transfagarasan.

Trip we make today together will take us to western Romanian city of Timisoara.
Bucharest is the capital and largest city of Romania. In the last century, during the wars, Bucharest was called the Paris of the East and it was a very attractive city for foreign tourists. But under Nicholas Ceausescu, everything changed and Bucharest is one of the less attractive cities in Romania. In recent years, however, the popularity has increased slightly.
In the foothills of the Romanian Carpathians you can find one of the most beautiful cities in the country. There are preserved medieval fortifications, beautiful churches and romantic streets. There are also great gastronomy and cultural activities. Let's go to Sibiu together.
When traveling from Bohemia to Transylvania you probably do not miss the Romanian town of Arad. Originally I stopped there only for overnight, but in the end I was very pleasantly surprised. I spent several hours in his streets walking around with the camera and it was worth it.
It was a wonderful experience to visit the Romanian capital of Bucharest. Our vacation, however, was getting to its end. Therefore, we set off to one last adventure, the town of Sibiu.
Upon our ride of the Danube Delta and our visit to the sea resort of Mamaia we headed to the Romanian capital - Bucharest. This city of two million offers interesting sights, history, and fun at great landmarks and attractions.
In the last part of our series about travels across Romania we visited the town of Tulcea. It is basically the gate to the Danube Delta. Every year, thousands of tourists from all around the world visit this place. We are no exception. We will take the 120-km water ride off to the Black Sea.
We leaved Brasov for Tulcea early in the morning. On the road, we passed mining fields, vast meadows, and the mountain landscape changed to lowlands.
We set off to return to Brasov once we saw Castle Bran the said residenece of Count Dracula. We noticed Castle Râşnov, which is not less impressive. The castle sits above a town of the same name.
We started exploring Romania, a country on the Balkan peninsula last week. WE saw the towns of Arad and Brasov. This time we set off to the legendary castle Bran which became famous thanks to the famous Irish writer Bram Stoker and the book he wrote. Dracula.
