Romania is said to be one of Europe’s most intriguing destinations, and walking in Romania can feel like you are in a dream. The fairy tale landscapes combined with the medieval history and architecture make this country an absolute ‘out of this world’ visual delight.
The Carpathian Mountains stretch west to east in an arc from the Czech Republic to Romania and provide a beautiful backdrop as well as some of the most breathtaking hiking trails in the country. They can be experienced best from Romania’s Transylvania, best famed for Bram Stokers Dracula, but it’s not vampires that you will find here.
This is a unique undisturbed natural paradise and a wildlife watchers delight. Wolves, bears, and lynx are said to roam these wild forests, whilst eagles soar and wildflowers blossom.
The area has numerous National Parks which cater for a multitude of hikers of all abilities. You can be rewarded with some amazing views with very little effort.
On the Transylvanian plateau, castles overlook medieval villages, and are so unbelievably ornate that they appear fictional. Along the walks you can visit these historical villages with steepled churches and architecture from Saxon and Medieval times. You will feel like you’ve stepped back in history or onto the set of a movie.
Out in the open meadows you can walk with shepherds amongst landscapes of giant haystacks. Again transformed back in time to a horse and cart era, you will be greeted by locals with hospitable offerings from the land.
Walking in Romania is more than just a walking in a new landscape. It is a historical adventure where you will experience times gone by dating back to the 1100’s, where you can immerse yourself in ongoing traditions and folklore, as well as discover breathtaking landscapes and romantic architecture.
