I and my husband were always passionate about Romania, so we took this trip in order to discover more about it and its culture, and we were not disappointed. The people at Rolandia were very responsive and ensured that we'll make the best out of our trip there. We were very impressed by the Memorial to the Victims of Communism, and we loved the stories of the Painted Monasteries. We will definitely be back for more!
