Wow, we finally made it to the country of Romania as part of our 2016 "Round the World" trip. We spent a week in the beautiful city of Bucharest. We fell in love with its architecture, culture and people. We hope to return again! In addition to exploring the city, we also took a day trip to Translyvania to visit Sinaia Monastery, Peles Castle and Bran Castle (aka "Dracula's Castle"). It was a great adventure in the beautiful Romanian countryside. We also took a day trip to the country of Bulgaria visiting several historic areas.  Again, a great trip!  If you're interested in visiting either of these countries, we highly recommend Balkan Trails (  They made all of our arrangements (except for the hotel) and they did an excellent job!   Click on an album below to read more details and see our photographs.
