General Information about Romania

Romania is in South Eastern Europe on the Black Sea. Its Western border is shared with Hungary and Serbia, Ukraine with Moldova to the Northeast, and Bulgaria in the South. Bucharest is Romania's capital and its population is 22.27 million. The country's terrain is equally spread between mountain, hills and plains. Romania has a temperate climate but with significant regional variations between seasons. Summer is pleasant and warm although a little cooler in the mountains, and winter produces snow which can fall throughout the country.

Romania's medieval history is reflected in its many castles and fortresses, built in differing styles depending on the age. One of the most picturesque is Peles Castle built in 1883. Visit one of the preserved medieval towns of Transylvania of Brasov or Sibiu where you can wander down narrow cobblestoned streets of that era and make purchases from the range of small shops. There is plenty to keep the outdoor enthusiast's attention with horseback riding, skiing, rafting, cycling tours and bird watching in the Danube Delta where hundreds of bird species call home.

A good range of accommodation is available to suit most budgets from mountain chalets, vacation homes, hostels, bed and breakfasts, apartments and hotels.
