And the truth is that these 30 reasons are just the first on a list that can go on and on and on because Romania has a lot to offer.

  1. Calin and Wife Romanian: You two are too funny;-) Postcard pretty pictures–all! Calin, where are the pictures of your hometown, Drobeta-Turnu Severin–do you ever just say “DTS”? In an older post you mentioned your city and Piatra Neamt were the two greenest cities in Romania. Did you mean green as in lots of green grass, vegetation, flora, fauna, or green as in very ecologically oriented–recycling, solar and wind power use, composting, recycling, etc?
    So, have you taken the Dacia on a drive on the The Transfagarasan Road? (I get dizzy just looking at it;-)
    After your train trips in May, it will interesting to hear your thoughts on the different train services you will be using. The train services in the USA–once some of the greatest, have sadly fallen on hard times becoming just one–AMTRAK. Basically, they become the victim of the airplane and the car. Still, one hopes once high speed rail in California is up and running, other areas of the country will see its benefits.
    Very lovely pictures which surely should attract even the armchair traveler to hop on over to Romania.

    • Hello Teil,

      Never been on the Transfagarasan Road, but everybody who traveled there says that it’s absolutely breathtaking and apparently simply stopping by the side of the road to admire the view is a must 🙂

      In Romania, using the initials is not such a big thing, so we call our city Severin (although the rest of the country refers to it as Drobeta :D). And it is, together with Piatra Neamt, green as in loots of parks and vegetation. Unfortunately, Romanian is not big on the eco-thing and I have no idea which would be the best city in this area. But it certainly is not Bucharest 🙂

  2. These are all stunning pictures! Wow!!! They defy my imagination even. For sure, l am going to visit within the next year hopefully. Dracula ‘s castle looks super awesome! Thanks for posting these… 🙂

  3. Wow, some great photos! My wife and I are in Budapest for the next two months but plan in spending some time in Romania next. We’re slow travellers and will most likely use Brasov as a base. But we look forward to seeing a lot of the countryside, some of the nature looks stunning.
    Expect to see more of us on the blog 🙂
