Romania is a popular destination for travel in Southeast Europe. This dynamic country is full of options. The capital, Bucharest, is great. There's also Transylvania and the Carpathian Mountains, Bucovina, or the Black Sea and Danube Delta. Visiting Romania is a joyful adventure. Romanian political history is tied to the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu. He came to power in 1965. Decades of oppression followed. He was finally overthrown and executed in 1989. Romania joined the European Union in 2007. It has not yet changed to the Euro. Romania uses the Romanian Leu (RON). Prices for food and drink are a real bargain compared to Eurozone countries. Rates at hotels have been creeping up and are similar to those in Central European destinations. As such it's not quite the cheap vacation that out-of-date guidebooks lead you to expect. But you can still have a great time on a budget. Although a full EU member, Romania is not part of the Schengen Area. Border checks are still in place. They're most noticeable if you enter or leave the country by road.

Frequently Asked Questions about travel to Romania
I want to go to Dracula’s Castle. Where is it?
The short answer is: Bran Castle, an easy day trip from Brasov, or a convenient stop on the road between Brasov and Sibiu. If you're staying in both then it's best to stop there on the way. Otherwise take a day trip that includes a visit to Bran Castle. The long answer is: this isn't really Dracula's Castle. Bram Stoker never visited the area, but some readers thought this castle matched the description in the book and so a legend was born. Vlad the Impaler, who inspired the Dracula story, may have stayed here once.
