Description

The trip starts from Cluj, and in our first day, we will be heading to Breb, a 300-year old village. Here you will enjoy a traditional lunch and spend the night in a traditional hotel.

The people of Maramures are very welcoming, and you will discover this through the talks that you will have with the local while enjoying some local foods and drinks (palinka included).

Our trip will then continue with a visit to what is perhaps the happiest cemetery in the world. The Merry Cemetery of Sapanta is filled with lively-colored tombstones and funny poems and it stands as proof that everything can be funny - even a cemetery.

We will then visit the wooden churches of Maramures, some of which are included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and better understand the spiritual side of Maramures.

Our journey will take us through villages where we will meet local craftsmen and admire their works, such as wood-carved gates.

Last but not least, we will visit the virgin forest of Strambu-Baiut, which houses over 10.000 species of plants and animals.

I visited Bucharest in April 2015. The city has a complicated history, but unique if you get to think about it … Great guide and great tour. You must take this communist tour in Bucharest to understand the city and its history.

I chose this tour due to my fascination about Dracula but I could not find him there as I wished. Though, the castles and the citadels impressed me a lot and it was easy to understand why Bram Stoker chose Transylvania for his book. The landscapes were amazing, Romania has for sure something very wild and mysterious with all those wooded mountains and strong medieval constructions. A nice touch was including the tour Iulia Hasdeu Castle, not a medieval one but with a beautiful-sad story which impressed us all. Maybe in the future the authorities will consider giving Dracula more credit than some cheap souvenirs as there are many generations that grew up with Dracula stories. At least, I returned home with great memories and great photos from Transylvania and now it will be much easier to tell my son stories about Dracula actually showing him real images from the Count’ real home.
Very good tour!
Our guide gave us a very interesting tour of the city, with a lot of historical facts thrown in. His knowledge of the city and of the history that has shaped it was quite extensive. On top of that, he was polite and accommodating. Highly recommended.
