Another question, where would you recommend to eat local food?

Hi there.

I don't recommend you to go in a village around Bucharest.
If you want to see something specific, go in Transylvania.
For example, you can have a tour in the old saxon villages close to Brasov:
Prejmer, Harman and especially Viscri for the autentic country side atmosphere. All three for fortified churches (especially in Prejmer and Viscri).

If you are going in Viscri I can recommend you a nice, local guest house: Viscri 195, with a good price, very nice food made by the owner with local products and good tips to visit the village.

Also, you can have a tour in Sighisoara, a very nice town and to stop before arriving in Brasov at Peles Castle.

Two days are enough for this trip and you'll see nice things there. It's a classic one that I recommend everytime.

Good luck!

P.S.: Local food in Bucharest at Jaristea or Casa Doina.

Right on the outskirts of Bucharest lies the breathtaking Mogoșoaia Palace, built in a Romanian Renaissance style. The domain is enormous, with plenty of green spaces. Other things you can do there are wander by the lake or visit the greenhouses or the St George Church.

Hello ! I would recomand a Prahova Valley tour with a local guide with minivan ,It's a little bit more then the price of a car but you get to see all amazing places in one day tour. We organize tours at verry competitive prices .For food you can go to Hanul lui Manuc!
