Romania – it’s all pretty good

Draculas Castle in Bran

Dracula’s Castle in Bran

Romania may not be on everybody’s lips as a long weekend destination but it?definitely has its attractions.?Flights?to the capital, Bucharest, start with Ryan Air for example,? as low as ?30 return – there’s mid day departures?too -?and the airport in?Bucharest is a short ride from the?capital (?5 by bus).

A perfect ‘5 day weekend’ would be to?spend one or two nights in?the old part of?Bucharest, gastronomically it’s?wonderful, then take a train?to Brasov?near Bran; the beginnings of Transylvania, and visit Dracula’s Castle amongst more restaurants and?shopping.?Back on the train, and Sinaia?could be your next stop (just an hour from Bucharest)?a pretty ski resort.?Then return to Bucharest for one final night.

Hotels are cheap; from around ?30 a night for a good one,?an?hour?on a train will cost?you ?1.50 and meals in nice restaurants start at ?2.?At ?1.50 a glass, the wine?is worth sampling too.??Maybe?this is one place we could?add to the Angel Holidays agenda one day. The people, are wonderfully polite and helpful too.
