Romania is a destination that charms the hearts of all who dare to explore it. Medieval castles perched on top of steep cliffs, villages that appear to have just stepped out of the middle ages, and myths and legends that are centuries old make Romania a land of fairy tales. In order to find out what Romania looks like to a foreigner, we talked with a few travel bloggers that visited our country. In the following weeks, we will discover their stories, their experiences, and their motivation for visiting Romania.
