KNOWING ROMANIA THROUGH CULTURAL TOURS
It’s impossible to describe Romania in one single phrase. Each sentence must be followed by a “but” which should highlight an entity with many aspects. Some of these issues continue to astonish even its inhabitants.
The Carpathian Mounatins, the Black Sea, the Danube Delta, the monasteries from Bucovina, the peasant traditions from Maramures region, the Transylvania and Dracula’s legend, the renowned wines, the traditional dishes, and above all, the Romanian’s hospitality, all this means Romania. A country where tourists can relax on the beach, can get down in the solitude of the mountains or deep caves, explore the Danube Delta, or to relax in a traditional house, enjoying the taste of the wines with unique flavors.
