Romania

Romania boasts some of Europe's best castles and woodland, but that's not all. See how many things you can tick off our Romania bucket list during your stay! 

Discover Dracula's Castle

 

You do know Dracula doesn't exist, right? But when you visit Bran Castle, rising high above the valley, you might have second thoughts. 

 

Located in the region of Transylvania, this castle attracts visitors from all over the globe, hoping to see some connection with the blood-sucking vampire. Either way, it's a great place to visit when you're in Romania!

Marvel at the Merry Cemetery, Sapanta

 

As its name suggests, the Merry Cemetery will make you smile. Located in a small vilage in north Romania, the Merry Cemetery celebrates the lives of its inhabitants through brightly-painted crosses and portraits of the deceased. Take the time to read the inscriptions to see how these people have been immortalised - and not all of them in a flattering way...
