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.

Romania – Danube Delta

You’ve eaten pizza in Italy, sipped wine in France and island-hopped around Greece. There’s no disputing these classic European destinations are favourites for a reason. But there are still plenty of other lesser-visited countries worth paying attention to, and Romania is a perfect example of that.

Captivating history, character-filled architecture and majestic mountains are just a handful of the things that make this place unfairly underrated. Cast your eyes over these Romanian hotspots and I dare you not to want to book your flights right away!


Admittedly Romania’s capital city isn’t the prettiest or chicest place you’re ever likely to visit, but it shouldn’t be overlooked. In fact, Bucharest is becoming increasingly better known for its cosmopolitan feel and energetic vibe. It also houses the world’s second largest building; the Palace of Parliament is a 12-storey beast of gargantuan scale with 1,100 rooms and 4,500 chandeliers.

Other must-sees include the open-air Dimitrie Gusti Village Museum, which showcases models of Romanian homes throughout the centuries. The Carturesti Carusel, a mesmerising bookstore in the centre of old Bucharest. Obor market, one of the biggest and liveliest, is also well worth a visit.

Danube Delta threatened by casinos and shopping malls; WWF

Romania – Danube Delta

Bucharest – A bill being considered by the Romanian Parliament would give tax incentives for construction of casinos and retail space in the Danube Delta and other ecologically sensitive areas of Romania.  WWF-Romania and other Romanian NGOs, in particular Eco-Civica Foundation, Birdlife Romania, Federation Coalition Natura 2000 and the Conservation Carpathia Foundation, urge members of the Romanian Parliament to reject this proposal.

The legislation, if passed, would transform the Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and other protected natural areas in Romania into shopping and entertainment zones without taking into account the protection of their unique values.

The Danube Delta provides habitat for 300 species of birds, most of them strictly protected under European law. As the new law does not call for strict avoidance of environmental impacts, there is a significant risk of losing rare species and protected habitats.
