Things to do in Romania
Stavropoleos should be top of your to-do list for your Romanian getaway. Visitors can take in a cultural heritage collection of Byzantine art and music, artefacts, frescoes and icons. It is also home to the Stavropoleos Monastery, a religious and architectural gem. It’s extremely rare to find a monastery like this in the centre of a city, particularly in Europe.
There’s plenty to see and do in the capital of Bucharest, including the gorgeous architecture of the Romanian Athenaeum, the National Museums of art and natural history, and Cotroceni Palace. After all that sightseeing, a trip to Herastrau park with its large lake and woodlands is the ideal way to unwind.
If you’re staying in Bucharest, a day trip further afield to marvel at Romania’s historic medieval towns is definitely on the cards. Vampire country in Transylvania is home to the menacing Bran Castle, which has to be seen to be believed.
Although it may not be the first place that jumps to mind when you think of beach holidays, Romania does boast some spectacular seaside getaway destinations. Bordering on the Black Sea, its 245 kilometres of coast in the south east is full of beautiful lakes and seaside. For a sandy beach in the sun, the port city of Constata is ideal; its golden coast stretches all the way to the Bulgarian border. Temperatures in Constata reach 29 degrees on average during the summer months, and the resort gets 11 hours of sunshine daily. Mamaia is another coastal hotspot. Its narrow stretch of light, fine-sand beach lies between the Black Sea and Lake Siutghiol – one of the most popular water sports destinations at the Romanian seaside. The area boasts hotels, a casino, great nightlife and many restaurants, but it is also steeped in legend and home to a beautiful calcareous island.
