On the way, you will also visit other highlights, like Peles Castle, vampire Dracula's Bran Castle, the Bear Sanctuary, etc. Travelers who love natural wetland cannot miss the breathtaking beauty of the Danube Delta where you can take a private boat to watch the amazing sunset by joining a two-day tour. If it happens to be between July 1st and October 31st, add one more day to visit the world-famous Transfagarasan road.
To get to know more about Romania, spend 3 or 4 more days to explore Transylvania. Besides the UNESCO Saxon villages, you will also have the chance to visit the Turda Salt Mine, the medieval Corvin Castle and city of Sighisoara. Bucovina and Maramures regions also have many UNESCO sites, like Budesti wooden church, Moldovita Painted Monastery. If you are interested, make a 5-day Romania holiday there. What's more, these two lands offer authentic rural scenery, and the traditional customs and crafts are most alive, like wood carving and painting on the eggshell. In Maramures, an overnight stay in a local wooden house is a must-do during your Romania tours.
