While the rest of the world thinks Dracula when they hear Transylvania, for Romanians, the region is associated with the Carpathian landscape and the rich history. Medieval fortresses, picturesque villages and scenic nature is what to expect here. Bucharest is the starting point for exploring the rest of Romania & this region should be on the top of your list.
|Parliament Palace |
In the center of Bucharest, you will find the world's second-largest building. It's huge, pompous & perhaps not very tasteful, but still impressive in all its madness. It's open to tourists every day and tour tickets are quite cheap.
