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!
Almost every Romanian owns a nice memory related to the Black Sea. This is where the first childhood holiday with their parents probably happened. Or the first escape from home, by train or by car, for a getaway with their gang. The first summer love, the second, the third... Or, when we become parents, one of the first assumed responsibility to look for suitable conditions for their loved ones. With the season officially started by May 1, it is the perfect time to see how is the Black Sea in Romania and why it attracts millions of people for all the reasons you can think of!
If you have ever been to popular places such as Vienna or Budapest, you had the chance to admire Danube - the second largest river in Europe. Beautiful, right? Well, let me tell you a secret: there is no place along this river, more spectacular than the Danube Boilers in Romania! And today, I am going to show you why, with the help of some personal memories dating back to 2013...
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!
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!
