I am a Romanian composer, and I have a feeling of force and confidence, one of a noble ideal, when what I write harmonizes at all with the works of the great Romanian creators.

Sibiu, my lovely city
It is the One
On which, by taking walks 
At quiet times, 
It filled my heart with. Beauty

-Elena Sandu


I learned how little in the way of material goods we really need, and how beautiful a simple life can be. In Romania people work with their hands every day, and you’ll see an 80-year-old woman still chopping wood because she’s been looking after herself all her life, and she still has the strength to do it.

Te iu bese, I love you in Romanian

-Ken E. Hall

Romania - Danube River

Without me, Transylvania will be as exciting as Bucharest… on a Monday Night.

-Robert Kaufman in Love at First Bite

Romania - Bran Castle

What comes to your mind when you think of the word Transylvania, if you ponder it at all? What comes to my mind are mountains of savage beauty, ancient castles, werewolves, and witches – a land of magical obscurity. How, in short, am I to believe I will still be in Europe, on entering such a realm? I shall let you know if it’s Europe or fairyland, when I get there.

Since the blood of the country is eternal and immortal, and because in the same royal artery blows Trajan’s triumphal march and in order to be, like him, again and always the first of the human race, I proclaim myself Salvador Dalí, catholic, apostolic, Roman and Romanian.

-Salvador Dali

It’s true that in Romanian I feel more relaxed, as if I’m wearing slippers.

We are in Transylvania, and Transylvania is not England. Our ways are not your ways, and there shall be to you many strange things. Nay, from what you have told me of your experiences already, you know something of what strange things there may be.

There is no such place as Budapest. Perhaps you are thinking of Bucharest, …and there is no such place as Bucharest, either.

What to Bring with You to Romania

Greece - Crete - Heraklion - Old Venetian Harbor Luggage

If you’re planning a trip to Romania, you’ll want to pack all the normal essentials, but here are a few things we strongly recommend bringing that may not have crossed your mind.

– A physical guidebook, in paper or on Kindle. We love Lonely Planet Bulgaria & Romania for this region and strongly recommend it to supplement blogs. Blogs are great, but a combination of a blog and a guidebook is key to having the best access to information easily at your fingertips.

– Layers in case of poor weather. We had really bad luck with weather our last trip in Romania – it snowed before Halloween! We always recommend bringing a rainproof jacket like Allison’s personal favorite, the Marmot PreCip, which she has had for years and has held up well to countless abuse over 3+ years of travels. (Here’s a men’s version, too!)

– A water bottle with a filter. While generally, the tap water in big cities in Romania is drinkable, such as in Bucharest and Brasov, we generally recommend using a water bottle with a purifying filter to reduce your plastic consumption and ensure you won’t drink any funny-tasting water on your stomach that could make your trip unpleasant! We recommend the GRAYL water bottle – it filters water perfectly in an instant so that you can even drink from lakes, bad taps, etc.

– Motion sickness pills. Romanian roads are winding and road conditions are not good – not even getting into the drivers, either. If you have a weak stomach like we do, save yourself and bring some non-drowsy motion sickness pills.

– Wet wipes, hand sanitizer, TP & other Balkan transit needs. Bathrooms in the Balkans tend to be… how can we say it?… not so well-stocked. Save yourself the disappointment and bring a mini-rescue pack of wet wipes & hand sanitizer.

 Travel safety items. We think Romania is very safe to travel, but at the same time, it never hurts to be prepared! Some people like to carry money belts, but neither Stephanie or I use these. Instead, we both carry the same PacSafe anti-theft backpack. It has locking zippers, slash-proof construction with metal mesh hidden in the fabric, and tons of other smart security features — all while being cute and stylish enough to be our everyday bag. We recommend it highly for both male and female travelers, as its neutral enough to be unisex. We also strongly recommend travel insurance! Our recommendation is at the bottom of the post.

Where to Stay in Romania

Romania - Bucharest - Umbrella Alley

We’re in the process of creating comprehensive guides on where to stay in different Romanian cities, but for now, we recommend checking out as early as possible. While Romania is underrated by international travelers, many of the best places can book early during the high season because Romanians know where to go.

Don’t Forget About Travel Insurance

I’m sure you’re aware that travel insurance is a good idea for traveling in Romania (or really, any part of the world)! Stephanie and I have both been paying customers of World Nomads for the last three years. We love the peace of mind it gives us in case of emergencies, accidents, illnesses, theft, or trip cancellation or disruption.

While the Balkans are perfectly safe to travel around, there’s always a risk inherent in everyday travel, so it’s better to play it safe. The saying goes “if you can’t afford travel insurance, you can’t afford to travel” is true!
