Bukovina and Maramures create the entire northern part of Romania, an area which is more than interesting to explore. The same as Maramures but with a different identity, Bukovina also impresses with the beauty of the mountains, the century-long traditions and the tasty cuisine. What stands it apart is the strong medieval legacy, with the region finding its glory back in the 15th century as part of Stefan cel Mare's Moldavia. The historical area is nowadays split in two between Romania and Ukraine, and this article looks to cover the uniqueness and beauty of the Romanian territory.
Maramures is the best place in Romania to taste a wide variety of beautiful, old customs. Basically there is no week during one year without an interesting event, whether it's about wearing folk costumes, tasting local food or mastering wood. Add to that some of the most unique things to do in the whole world, the astonishing natural scenery or the second largest protected area in the country, and there you have it - the region in Romania that can offer a full experience!
Apuseni has always been a top destination for me in Romania. If not in Europe. I have always preferred mountains and, despite being some of the lowest in the Carpathians, I think it is the best place to fall in love with nature: ravishing landscapes, amazing destinations, caves, waterfalls, easy or difficult routes, fairs and old traditions - charm at its best! I cannot remember another area with such a wide variety of things to do, and this article aims to briefly explain the complex beauty of the Apuseni Mountains.
If you browse through my website you should know I am on a constant quest of finding valuable Romanians performing worldwide. I look for unknown heroes as I like to call them, interview them and share their beautiful stories and beliefs. I am always amazed to see how good we are in everything we decide to do, and the good news is - we've always been like that! With Romania on everybody's lips these days, it is the perfect time to take a step back and think about our rich history and the people who influenced it. So here's my list of 35 top Romanian people everyone should know about, ordered chronologically.
You've heard a lot about Romania these days. All famous magazines and TV channels extensively cover recent events in our country. Your Facebook News Feed probably contains some spectacular photos and videos taken in Romania. You may have also seen groups of people in your city chanting and carrying our national flag. I am going to tell you who we truly are and why this is happening, but first, let me share you a story...
I never would have thought that my website would see such a sensitive topic. We are, however, currently making history in Romania and the following days are decisive for our future. I don't know how the events of these days will turn out for my country, but one thing is for sure: we are witnessing the rise of a golden nation, a latent force reunited and determined to speak up!
Being referred to as “Little Vienna” or the most cosmopolitan city of Romania, Timisoara is worldwide known for at least three reasons: the first city in Europe to use horse trams (1869), electricity on the street (1889), and the place where the Romanian anti-communism revolution has started (1989). It is already an interesting city to visit, and we can only expect a further development, since it has been recently named the 2021 European cultural capital. Timisoara welcomes its guests with an occidental atmosphere, 900 years of history and a vibrant cultural life, and it also represents a perfect gateway for exploring the fabulous Western Romania.
A little bit underrated in the past, Oradea slowly turns into one of the main tourist attractions in Romania. During former years, lots of investments have been made in building infrastructure and developing tourism. Nowadays Oradea becomes a great alternative for other famous cities in the region, such as Budapest or Vienna. One of my favorite cities in Romania is truly a fabulous destination for anyone passionate about sightseeing!
Iasi, the Romanian city of the seven hills, is by far the most interesting in Moldavia region. It has a cultural heritage nowhere else to be seen in Romania, and in the same time is rapidly turning into an IT hub for the thousands of performers taking over the business environment. It is no wonder why the city is both suitable for any culture lover keen to learn the history of Moldavia, as well as for those who want to have some genuine, Romanian fun. Let's take a look at the milestones of one of the most important places to see in Romania!
Now I don't have an objective reason to back-up this statement. Probably because it is one of the first places I have visited in my life, outside Bucharest. Or maybe thanks to Mures being one of the most offering counties in Romania when it comes to tourism. Or just because I have a strange, pleasant feeling that I am actually in Barcelona every time I walk on the streets and hills of this beautiful city. I know it's an odd choice, especially with other more popular places in Romania. What I always do is recommend anyone to give it a try to Mures, and you'll see why in the following 5 minutes!
