Our last stop in Transylvania was Brasov, from where we went to see Dracula’s castle in Bran, did a hike in the forest with more bears than people, and went on one of the best free walking tours we’ve done to date.
Everything you do in Sighisoara requires climbing hills or staircases, except simply chilling on the square in the old town with a coffee and a sweet. We did a little bit of both, and would absolutely recommend a visit.
Sibiu was our first stop in Romania outside of Bucharest, and we loved the historical center with all of its churches and old buildings with eyes on the roof. We visited a really cool open air museum showing how people lived a long time ago.
Bucharest will probably not be anyone’s highlight on a trip to Romania, but we found plenty to do walking around the old town, visiting a historical museum and an Easter market, and spending the afternoon in the tranquil city park.
Romania is more than Transylvania, but that was pretty much what we had time for with only nine days to spend in the country. We did see some very beautiful old towns, take some long walks in nature, eat delicious food almost every day and moved around by train easily.
