Blaj - Romanian architect Vlad Rusu has resurrected a "cultural palace" that was originally built in the 1930s but has sat in ruin for 20 years after being ravaged by fire. Rusu won a competition to overhaul the ageing structure in Blaj, a small city in central Romania.

Carpathian Mountains - Did you know that more 50% of the Carpathian chain of mountain is located in Romania? :) The views are breathtaking and even though the highest peak in Romania (Moldoveanu Peak - 2544m) is just a bit over half of the altitude of the highest peak in The Alps (Mont Blanc - 4810m), the Romanian Carpathian Mountains are simply stunning! The landscapes, the views, the fauna and flora, everything is overwhelming once you get on top of a Romanian mountain! Photo: Adrian…

Targu Mures is a nice city in the northern part of Transylvania. The city center is extremely beautiful, with colorful old buildings and a newly renovated fortress.

The colors of the Romanian mountains simply amaze us! Each fall we try to get away from all the hustle and bustle of the big cities and try to relax in some of these peaceful places. Bran is one of them and Inn on Balaban is for sure the best place to find some relaxation in a completely Romanian atmosphere. Totally recommend it when visiting Romania, it is probably one of the most beautiful places for accommodation!

Traditional house in Moeciu village, in Brasov county. From time out of memory, Romanian people have a special connection with the land they own. So you will always see small houses and big parcels of land worked by farmers, to produce their own traditional products. As higher you'll go in the mountains, the fewer houses you'll see. But those are the really traditional ones, so it's worth seeing them :)

Lake St. Anne, the only volcanic lake in Romania, is situated close to Tusnad city, in Harghita county. If visiting during fall, you will be amazed by the beauty of the colors that reflect in the crystal clear waters. Such a beautiful and peaceful place!

Unfortunately, Romania has a really bad reputation in terms of infrastructure. We've heard many foreigners saying that they don't want to visit Romania because we have terrible roads. The truth is... We do have terrible roads. Buuuuuut if we consider Top Gear's opinion, Romania has the best driving road in the world!! Transfagarasanul that is :) Anyway, no matter how bad our roads are (actually not bad, but just not enough to support the high traffic), the views are stunning! This picture…

One of the most beautiful Neo-Romanian castle in our country! The Cantacuzino Castle, in Busteni, is such a nice place to spend a relaxing Sunday afternoon, enjoying a tasty brunch at their restaurant, watching the close by mountains. The castle can be visited inside as well. The gardens are extremely beautiful, with cobbled alleys, fountains and (thre already famous) swing chair :)
