Brief post on a trip from my pre-blogging days


Bucharest, Cluj-Napoca, Brasov, Bran, Rasnov

The Matthias Corvinus Monument and St. Michael’s Church in Piața Unirii, the largest square in Cluj-Napoca.

Cluj’s beautiful Orthodox Cathedral.

Climb up to Cetatuia Hill for a walk through a park with views over the city. Make the most of the view by grabbing a drink at Pergola bar.

A visit to Salina Turda allows you to learn about the history of salt mining while taking in this large, impressive salt mine that marries the old and modern.

The Palace of Parliament in Bucharest, the largest administrative building in the world.

While away a few relaxing hours in Bucharest’s Cișmigiu Gardens.

A meal at Caru‘ cu Bere is a must when you’re in the city and looking for something traditional and unique, if you can forgive it being a little touristy. Bucharest’s oldest beer house offers simple Romanian food at cheap prices, impressive architecture, lively entertainment and plenty of character on top of some great beer.

Cărturești Carusel is a gorgeous bookshop in Bucharest that could eat hours away from your day if you allow it.

The impressive remains of Râșnov Citadel are a top spot in Transylvania. You genuinely feel transported back to the past as you tour this fortress on a hill.

Because Bran Castle is the only one in all Transylvania that fits Bram Stroker’s description of Dracula’s castle, it is considered all over the world to be the supposed home of this legendary vampire. A tour of the castle through its creaking, winding staircases and many timbered rooms will be enjoyed both by fans of the fictional Count and not.  

The picturesque city of Brasov is another recommended stop in Transylvania.
