Misc

As any other country in this world has two faces (from a touristic point of view). If you want to visit what's "to be seen" in Romania then check out 12 places to visit in Romania.

Then there is this other face, that most foreign visitors do not know and few locals bother to make known.

Perhaps the world got into a sort of "travel template". If you go to France you have to visit Eiffel Tour, if you go to Rome there is the Roman Colosseum and so on. What do you actually learn about France, french people and French culture by visiting the Eiffel Tour? The same thing can be said about Romania. We'll update this wiki page with details about "what visitors SHOULD do to learn more about Romania" and what to visit that's not on the traditional "Romanian Travel Template."

I promised you I will be back with another Romania, that you will never find on any travel guide. This short video is a good start.
