how to get here
Welcome to Romania – our beautiful and beloved country. We do hope you enjoy your trip and we are proud to have you as our guests.
Romania is a SouthEastern European country, a country to be experienced. It is known for the forested region of Transylvania, the medieval Saxon fortified villages and fairytale castles of Transylvania, mystical Painted Monasteries of Moldavia, ancient Greek and Roman cities of Dobruja, extraordinary caves of Crisana or the ancient potters’ villages of Wallachia. Also, we should not forget the fascinating Danube Delta, an ecotourism paradise, the second largest delta in Europe, the most beautiful one we believe, declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1991. It is a museum of biodiversity, with thousands of species of plants, trees, birds, insects, fish, which transforms it into a real and priceless natural gene bank. We have to add here the Carpathian Mountains with their dense population of wolves, bears and lynx in Europe.
Little Paris of the East
The Romanian capital is a city of contrasts, where historic buildings stand side by side with skyscrapers of glass and metal. The streets of Bucharest often reflect its nickname ‘Little Paris of the East’, a name given to the capital between the wars for its elegant architecture and thriving cultural life.
Our legends tie us to the entire world. The keys of the humanity are here – as they are everywhere. Read a brief synopsis of our most famous legends and maybe we can turn them together into fabulous movies.
> Romanian Legends has it that the city of Bucharest was founded on the banks of the Dambovita River by a shepherd named Bucur, whose name literarily means "joy." His flute playing reportedly dazzled the people and his hearty wine for nearby vineyards endeared him to the local traders, who gave his name to the place.
> Manole is said to have sacrificed his wife by building her into the wall of the church he was building. The word sacrifice comes from sacrum facere - to do a sacred thing. Romanians are thorough believers and they trust it that tragedy is transforming the hardest soul into a loving one.
> Dracula is famous as the interpretation of Bram Stoker. Actually, he was a voȉvod – a leader of a historical part of what is now Romania. His sense of justice was grossly re-formulated into the character we know today. The historical truth is that he was a liberator, repairing unfair deeds.
> Ielele are the most beautiful fairies, so beautiful that if anyone sees them gets mad or remains petrified. Do not worry! Their night is in July, so we are done by then.
There is a direct train from the Henri Coanda Airport to the heart of the city, or you can take a taxi/Uber.
