Voyages Jules Verne

Explore Romania

Fine architecture, famous painted monasteries and an epic mountain range are just three, but very good, reasons to visit this country. Romania’s monuments, fairy-tale castles and even Dracula’s lair trace the centuries and make up the rich tapestry that is its unique story.

Elegant Bucharest, the capital, has wide boulevards and French architecture, whilst the mammoth Palace of the Parliament is the second largest building in the world after the Pentagon. Only the striking southern Carpathian Mountains running through the country’s centre dwarfs it!

Other remarkable buildings include Brasov’s Gothic-style Black Church, Peles Castle and Sibiu’s Orthodox Church. But nothing compares to the unique painted churches of Bucovina, with their flowery exterior frescoes, as fresh as the day they were painted.

Visitors make their way to Transylvania with its memorable medieval towns, they encounter the village of Bran whose medieval castle, also known as Dracula’s Castle – the highlight of the tour for many. You can also take a cruise along the Danube to admire the Roman Emperor Trajan’s memorial plaque, Mraconia Monastery and King Decebal’s face carved into the rock on the riverbank.
