Romania Heritage-History Tour

Romania practically oozes culture and history – its churches and painted monasteries stand against a stunning backdrop of pristine nature, as the Carpathian Mountains split the country in half. Romania’s capital, Bucharest, is full of life and energy, with a vibrant young population. With its fascinating past, it only makes sense to take a Romania Heritage-History Tour with an experienced local guide to get the most out of your sightseeing experience.

Starting in Bucharest, visit some of the city’s most monumental attractions. Begin at the Palace of Parliament, also called the House of People, built between 1984-1989. Learn about its communist era legacy. Then move on to the Village Museum, an ethnographical open-air park. Founded by Dimitrie Gusti in 1936, it includes household samples from all regions of the country. Moving on, visit the Romanian Athaeneum, a concert hall in the centre of the city. The Romanian Orthodox Patriarchal Cathedral is also worth visiting, having been completed in 1658. Its façade is in the unique Brancovenesc style. Stop by the Arc of Triumph paying tribute to the Romanian soldiers during World War I.

Be sure to see Revolution Square, where the communist dictator Ceausescu held his last public speech. For something a little lighter, walk around the Old Town on your Romania Heritage-History Tour to visit some of the entertainment district’s cafes, restaurants, and nightclubs.

Ready to meet Dracula? Transylvania is the place to go. Transylvania is located north of Bucharest, through the gorgeous Bucegi mountain range. Stop in the Prahova Valley, where skiers come to ski during the winter months. Spend some time in the small village of Sinaia, home to Peles Castle. It’s the most visited museum in Romania, and has been a summer residence to the Romanian Royal family for centuries.

Romania Heritage-History Tour Continued...

From here, Transylvania is easily reached. This is also where you’ll find Bran Castle, the fortress associated with Vlad Dracula’s myth. Let your guide lead you back to the time of the Saxon knights, following the narrow stairways and gothic arches throughout the structure. You’ll learn all about Vlad as you explore, and – who knows – maybe you’ll even get a glimpse of him yourself! Around Bran Castle, you’ll find lots of beautiful little markets. Don’t leave Transylvania without visiting Sighisoara, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the only inhabited medieval citadel in Europe. You can even stay in one of the hotel rooms, right in the heart of the 800-year-old city. Around town you’ll see such attractions like Vlad the Impaler’s house.

Be sure to visit Harman. Take a walk around the upper city, including the Clock Tower, the Scholars Stairs, and the Church on the Hill. Visit the Saxon Cemetery. As you leave the region, you’ll drive through the Transylvanian plateau, with the highest density of medieval fortifications in the world. Ready to explore Romania?
