It’s a pleasure to invite you to (re)discover the authentic charm of a country located equally close to the East as to the West, a nation that evolved gradually, while remaining true to its core. Whether you come from Romania or from afar, this ever-surprising country has in store for you an unforgettable holiday in places with a unique spirituality, where a touch of perennial history follows you at every step. As contemporary elements mingle with proofs of the past, this is the place where you can discover everything except boredom.
Romania offers an array of medieval castles, authentic households, guest houses with a series of leisure activities for your entertainment – horseback riding, hay wagon rides, bicycle riding, spa programs – tourists routes, dreamy landscapes that compete with sightseeing in Tuscany or Provence.
You will also love the Romanian people – with an irresistible sense of humor and cheerfulness, Romanians know how to enjoy good wines and delightful meals that they generously share with their guests.
A tour of Romania is a fascinating experience! It is a country full of contrasts: while some cities would not seem out of place in Western Europe, villages in rural areas seem to be brought back from two hun- dred years ago. The region of Transylvania is famous for its medieval castles where you can search for the spirit of Dracula while the capital, Bucharest will surprise you with many museums and the second-largest building in the world, the People’s Palace.
Is home to some of Europe’s best-preserved medieval towns, most notably Brasov, featuring Old Saxon architecture and citadel ruins; Sibiu with its cobblestone streets and pastel-colored houses, and Sighisoara, adorned with a hilltop citadel, secret passageways and a 14th century clock tower. Maramures Is considered by many to be the heart and soul of rural Romania. With its picturesque countryside of small villages, rolling hills, pastures, and meadows full of wildflowers, Maramures epitomiz- es all that the rural lifestyle encompasses. Visitors to Maramures have a unique opportunity to step back in time and bear witness to simpler times and simpler lives.
Is a very special holiday experience. To spend several days in one of the Prince Charles properties in Transylvania is something unique. For him the region represented a dream come true: a living example of the possibility of a more harmonious relationship between man and nature; a community that, rather than destroying its traditions in the race to modernity, seemed to have preserved and adapted them. You have the opportunity to immerse yourself in a forgotten world that you probably believe has ceased to exist in today’s Europe. In a word – „Experience the luxury of simplicity!”
Is not yet very well developed in Romania, but the fact that some of the country’s most beautiful wine cellars and vineyards are not yet known to large group of tourists can make a trip there even more worthwhile.

Another interesting journey you can have in Romania is a Gourmet Truffle Experience in Transylania, area becoming more and more renowned for its huge amounts and excellent quality of black truffles. For several days you’ll taste a mix of a sightseeing tour, nature activi- ties and gourmet experience. Hunting truffles it’s not like a wine tour where you sit comfortably tast- ing and assessing what’s given to you. You get your shoes dirty as you follow a dog and his master as they weave their way through the woods at an early hour in the morning. But the trophy? The exhilarating experience of finding the truffles, prepare them and finally enjoy them with a glass of a very good wine.
