Sighisoara
Sighisoara
Located in Mures County in the historic area of Transylvania, Sighisoara is a well-preserved medieval walled town. During the 12th century, it was founded by German craftsmen and merchants. The UNESCO World Heritage Site is filled with narrow cobbled streets, colorful houses, and soaring towers. The most prominent of which is the 64-meter-high Clock Tower that was built in 1556.
Sarmizegetusa Regia
Sarmizegetusa Regia
Historically, this area was the capital in the time of the Dacian settlement and was the center of its military, religious, and political happenings. Today, the site is a mysterious site of ancient history nestled in the Orastie Mountains and one of Romania's UNESCO World Heritage Sites. Located on top of a mountain at an elevation of 1,200 meters, the historic area is filled with centuries-old ruins, like one sanctuary reminiscent of Stonehenge in England.
The Red Ravine
The Red Ravine
The Red Ravine, or Rapa Rosie, is a breathtaking geological reserve in the southwest of the Secaselor Plateau, near the city of Sebes. Erosion runoff has caused the distinct sharp appearance of the mountainside, and the 800-meter-long wall is almost completely vertical, reaching heights between 50 and 125 meters. The area's red quality comes from the formation of gravel, quartz sands, and sandstones.
Transalpina
Transalpina
Take a scenic drive on the Transalpina, or the DN67C, a curvy alpine road that cuts through the Parâng Mountains in Romania's Southern Carpathians. It is one of the highest roads in the country, and locals have called it the King's Road or Devil's Pathway. Urdele Pass is the highest point on the road, with an elevation of 2,145 meters above sea level. The road travels between Novaci and Sebes, running through four counties.
Bran Castle
Bran Castle
The strong but elegant Bran Castle, which dates back to 1377, is one of Romania's top destinations. This is mainly because of its associations with a certain vampire - the medieval hilltop castle has been marketed as Bram Stoker's inspiration for Dracula's castle. Unfortunately, the claim to fame may be misleading because several other castles in the country have linked themselves to Stoker's famous vampire.
Palace of Culture
Palace of Culture
Visit the city of Iasi to find the beautiful Neo-Gothic building that houses Romania's Palace of Culture. With 298 rooms throughout its 390,000 square feet, the building houses four museums.
