There are many things to do when visit Romania but I know that your time is limited and you want to see only the most attractive places. That is why I will list below just the most stunning places to see in this country!

Visit the painted monasteries of Bucovina

These unique monuments from Europe are located on the northeastern side of the country and are a symbol of Romanian history. The monasteries were built a few centuries ago by Romanian rulers. After the most important victories in the Ottoman war, the Romanian rulers built a new monastery as a symbol of their power.

The monasteries are decorated with beautiful paintings representing bible scenes and portraits of the saints and of the Romanian ruler who built the place.

The monasteries are still inhabited by orthodox monks and priests, so don’t be surprised if a priest is praying for us!

Drive across Transfagaran and Transalpina

These two roads are one of the best Romania things to do! Both mountain roads are spectacular and give you the unique opportunity to drive along the two highest roads in the country!

Both roads cut the Carpathian Mountains from north to south. Transfagarasan is the second highest road from Romania and has a total length of 90 kilometres and was built by Ceausescu as a strategic road, which links two Romanian provinces: Wallachia and Transylvania.
