Romania 2012

For my vacation in 2012 I decided to go to Romania, a country I also visited in 1993 (and also quickly travelled through in 1995). In 1993 I found Romania to be quite strange – for instance, just because a place called itself a restaurant, did not necessarily mean that it served food. That was only a few years after the fall of Communism. Now, almost 20 years later, Romania is no longer that odd. There are still certainly some rough edges and pockets of backwardness, but I also found areas where Romania was on the frontline. Whatever, Romania has something that no other country in Europe can offer: the Danube delta. This is something I've longed to visit for a long time, and it was undoubtedly the most exciting part of the trip.

As always, there are too many pictures. Below is a summary with the best pictures. There are eight sub-sections:

  1. Bucharest (52 pictures).
  2. The Danube delta (108 pictures, with a lot of water on them).
  3. Braşov, a Central European gem (40 pictures).
  4. The Bucegi Range (64 mountain pictures).
  5. Sinaia (32 pictures).
  6. On the Road (28 pictures).
  7. Sighişoara, a world heritage (36 pictures).
  8. Sibiu and around (40 pictures).
