What I liked the most in Romania

March 2020 · 4 min read · Romania

Last summer me and my boyfriend spend two weeks in Romania. I have to say that we loved it very much, much more than we expected actually. We went there with small expectations but it was so much more than that. Romania is mystical, green and full of history. Local people there are extremely friendly, also the food is tasty. I enjoyed every second in this beautiful country!

What I liked the most in Romania:

Drive on Transfagarasan road

We met a beautiful couple from Poland, actually, they were newlyweds, on their honeymoon. We rented a car for one day and we went on an adventure that was for sure one of the best things that happened in our travel.

Transfagarasan is a mountain road, one of the most spectacular roads in the country and maybe even in the world. It rises to the hight of more than 2100 meters, it has viaducts, tunnels and on its highest point, is also a beautiful lake.

Wear warm clothes, it can get very cold on the top. Never in my life, I saw so many weather changes in such a short time. Rain, then the fog that you can’t see one meter ahead, cold, wind, sun, heat - we experienced everything.

I’m a big enthusiast for languages and I fell in love with Romanian language, Romance language that origins from Latin. It’s similar to Spanish, French, Italian, and Portuguese. Cause the country is positioned in Eastern Europe, most of the people think that it’s part of the Slavic family, I thought the same. Well, it has some Slavic roots but they are only 10% of the vocabulary. The first word I learned was mulţumesk (moltsomesk) and I used it on a daily basis, it means thank you.


I love Brasov! Such a lovely city. We spend 3 days there and we enjoyed every part of it. It’s a medieval town and it’s a perfect base to explore Transylvania. Historic Brasov (also called Romanian Hollywood with the sign Brasov on the top of the hill) offers medieval architecture, gothic churches, and narrow streets. Big square (Piata Sfatului) is the center of the city and it’s full of restaurants, bohemian cafes, and shops.

Sibiu is a must place to visit if you are in Romania. It’s an incredibly beautiful city, where I got the feeling, that I could just stroll around the streets or sit on a bench and watch people passing by… It’s like a walk in the past, and you won't get bored there, that's for sure. You can sit at Piata Mare (big square), visit Brukenthal National Museum, stroll around Sibiu’s lower town or relax in one of many Sibiu’s cafes.

Our 3 day trip to Moldova

The idea about visiting Moldova came from our friends, they were traveling in this area a year ago and Moldova was in their itinerary. We thought about it and then we also decided to go, it’s wasn't so far, and we love to explore new places.

Moldova is very different than Romania, it’s small and it’s one of the least visited country’s in Europe and now when I think about it, we didn’t see a lot of tourists there.

Chişinău is the capital and it’s a nice time to spend for a day or two, you can still feel the influence of the former Soviet Union.

Another thing great about Chişinău is the bus rides, which are crazy cheap, it’s like 5 cents (0,05€) for a ride, you can get wild and try all the routes in the city.

You know where is the biggest wine cellar in the world? Yes, it’s in Moldova.
