One of the royal palaces is the Peles Palace that is in Sinaia-Azuga Brasov and has ornaments outside and inside as well as painting and wood sculptures that are representative of the scenes of some of Wagner’s works. This is set in one of Romania’s most beautiful mountain resorts. The tour continues on to the village of Bran. Here is the famous Bran Castle for you to explore.
Romania holds such wonderful treasures from the past. There are so many things to visit and explore.

On the arrival in Sibiu, which is considered a jewel of the Romanian Medieval times, you can tour some of the wonderful sites of Medieval Sibiu. You will be put up in a hotel in Sibiu or one of the quaint rural guesthouses.

This is also the area where you find the Saxon fortresses, the most beautiful and valuable of the Medieval monuments, which are on the UNESCO heritage list. Some of these fortresses include Boian, Mosna, Richis and more but some of them were never preserved properly.
In the town of Sighisoara you might get some free time to explore and discover the untouched splendor of this citadel. It almost seems that time was stopped in this quaint town and you can again feel the Medieval atmosphere around you.
Another jewel of Transilvania is the town of Brasov. This town has the Old Square in the middle of town and within this square is the famous Black Church that takes up most of the area. All around this town you have the gorgeous landscape of the mountains that surround you.
So, don’t just tour Bucharest – see the whole country. You will never forget the wonders of touring Romania after you have visited it and you may want to visit this wonderful country again sometime to explore some of the places that you were unable to the first time there.
