Prince Charles last month chose a book about rural Romania, Along the Enchanted Way, as one of five favourites featured by his wife the Duchess of Cornwall’s reading club. But just how enchanting is Romania’s countryside?
Romania’s rise to popularity in Europe is due to its stunning scenery and budget-friendly options, opening up weekends away for visitors. Romania is a beautiful country, with breathtaking sandy beaches on the shores of the Black Sea, a forest-covered stretch of the Carpathian Mountains, and the largest delta in Europe filled with a variety of birds and animals. Romania’s natural wonders also include the largest population of brown bears in Europe and large bison reserves. Romania also has many hidden areas of natural beauty, including the second biggest underground glacier in Europe. Many travellers are more aware of Romania’s links to the famous gothic novel Dracula by Bram Stoker.
