The landscape of Romania is so varied and beautiful that one could say that the country has been given an unfair advantage.
Whether in the mountains or by the sea, any picture you take will look good on Instagram. It’s no surprise that Romania attracts a large number of foreign tourists each year in search of wildlife and mountain scenery on nature tours.
There are a number of trails just outside the city of Brașov that provide both fresh air and adventure.. In addition to its challenging trails, the Piatra Craiului massif is known for its narrow gorge and its traditional mountain towns of Peştera and Măgura.
If you’re looking to get away from Bucharest for a day, the Bucegi Mountains are a must-see. Among these mountain resorts are a few of the most well-known in Romania. They are also the location of the magnificent Peleș Castle. Babele and The Sphinx, two naturally occurring rock formations, are visible from afar.
The Transfagarasan is an absolute must-see on any trip to Romania’s countryside. According to Top Gear, this is the best road trip in the world. Mountain views, glacier lakes, and waterfalls are all on offer on the winding highway that traverse the highest mountains in Romania. It’s an added bonus that the high alpine road links up some noteworthy Romanian landmarks.
