One of the last frontiers of ancient European culture, Romania is a microcosm of ancient influences. Nestled between the Carpathian Mountains and the Black Sea, with the Danube flowing through its heart, Romania captures the imagination of every person who visits.
Startling juxtapositions of ancient and modern in Bucharest, fairy-tale castles warped in time in Transylvania, the pastoral serenity of Maramures, the mystical “witch-hat” monasteries of Bucovina, the bustling port of Constanta where the Danube meets the Black Sea – give Romania a magical serendipity unto its own. You never know what’s coming around the next corner.
Step into the cellars of monasteries and into the kitchens of grandmothers to imbibe the culture of the country. Dance the night away to lyrical folk music and experience the local folk culture first hand. Tip back a cupful of heady wine made by the monks in Bucovina’s monasteries. Exeter International’s experienced guides take you beyond the closed doors of this beautiful country to meet with the locals and uncover the ancient legacy of hospitality that is inherently Romanian.
