Surprising, beautiful, energetic… book Romania hotels and paint your own picture of this European beauty...
With a Black Sea coastline and neighbours including Bulgaria and Hungary, Romania should rank much higher in the minds of tourists than it currently does. It has hilltop castles and fortresses, snow-covered mountains, an entrancing peasant culture, activities for all levels of fitness, and bundles of monumental attractions that have tourists who do visit clicking away with their cameras.
Just a shade smaller than the UK, but with a third of the population (around 20 million), unspoilt Romania is home to some of Europe’s most stunning landscapes.
The Europe of the past is still here alongside the banks of the River Danube and in the shadow of the mighty Carpathian Mountains, where you will find medieval towns virtually untouched by modernity.
And if horror fiction is your thing, you can delve into the history books of Romania that stirred the imagination of writer Bram Stoker, who penned “Dracula”. You can tour places related to the story and even stay in a Dracula-themed hotel in Romania.
If you think oppressive Gothic décor might give you nightmares, there are plenty of other options when it comes to booking accommodation in Romania.

Top five attractions
Palace of Parliament in Bucharest
A huge and imposing palace, the parliament building boasts a thousand rooms – some of which can be viewed during a fascinating guided tour.
The beauty and style of this stunning casino is still evident, even if the iconic building itself is now nothing more than a shell: a monument to the architectural indifference of various Romanian governments.
It’s a three-hour drive north from Bucharest to the outskirts of Transylvania to reach this imposing 14th-century fortress, but the trip is well worth it to experience one of Europe’s most magical castles.
Herastrau Park in Bucharest
A delightful green space to the north of the city, this park is set around Lake Herastrau. Don’t miss the charming Village Museum, which is laid out across 15 hectares and displays about 60 original houses and shops of old Romania.
Palace of Culture in Iasi
One of the country’s largest structures, the Palace of Culture is also one of the finest examples of neo-Gothic architecture in the world.
