Bistrita-Nasaud is one of the most beautiful county in Romania... forgotten by tourists. Me included unfortunately... I was a little reserved to write a review about a place I haven't visited yet, but the lack of info in English convinced me. I only know a little more than you do, thanks to the online research of some Romanian websites, and to the confirmation of my lovely wife who has been luckier than me! So, whether you like it or not, this is your most reliable online English source about Bistrita County, provided by a guy who hasn't seen it in 33 years, but has done a very thorough research! I just hope by the end of this reading, you will wish to travel to Bistrita as much as I do right now!
Yes indeed, that is the Hungarian flag within Romanian borders! Because Szekely Land actually consists in three counties inside Transylvania, with a huge Hungarian population. Which can only mean one thing: a guarantee that everything is properly prepared for the eyes of their visitors. I have already covered Mures on this blog - do find it by the way, it is one of the most beautiful in Romania! Harghita and Covasna are my main focus for today, a controversial area with many things to offer for any nature lover, hiking fan, any adventurer who wishes to tick off all the beautiful places in this world.
Buzau is the region in Romania to see some wild, genuine Carpathian beauties! Pretty close to the very crowded Prahova Valley, the mountains in this area offer some of the most picturesque landscapes, unaltered by too much tourism. Add to that some of the most unique landmarks in the world or the international fame of local vineyards, and there you have it - probably the most beautiful county which is undeservedly forgotten in any touristic offer for Romania!
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!
