Where to go

Cluj-Napoca Botanical Garden - Officially named Alexandru Borza Cluj-Napoca University Botanic Garden, this botanical garden was founded in 1872 by Brassai Samuel. The garden has an area of over 14 hectares and contains over 10,000 plants from around the world. It is divided into several sections: ornamental, phytogeographic (geobotanical), systematic (taxonomical), economic, and medicinal. The top attractions of Cluj-Napoca Botanical Garden include the Japanese Garden and the Roman Garden.

Sphinx - Unlike the limestone statue of its namesake, the Sphinx in Romania is a natural rock formation. The Great Bucegi Sphinx is located in the Bucegi Natural Park, in the Bucegi Mountains. It is only a short walk from the Babele.

Peleș Castle - Peleș Castle is a Neo-Renaissance castle in the Carpathian Mountains. It is situated near Sinaia, in Parahova County, on a medieval route that connects Transylvania and Wallachia. The castle was built between 1873 and 1914, and inaugurated in 1883. Though it is called a castle, Peleș is actually a palace. The architectural style used is a romantically inspired mix of Neo-Renaissance and Gothic Revival.

National Museum of the Romanian Peasant - The Museum of the Roman Peasant located on Șoseaua Kiseleff in Bucharest houses a collection of textiles, costumes, icons, ceramics, and other artefacts relating to Romanian peasant life. It was awarded the "European Museum of the Year" for 1996. One of the most famous exhibits of the museum is the "House in the House".

There are direct flights from Romania to other European cities. The city of London, one of the leading tourist destinations in the world, is only about three hours of flight time away. It has numerous museums and art galleries, and entrance to majority of them is free of charge. Some of the most well-known cultural institutes are the British Museum, the Science Museum, the Natural History Museum, Tate Modern, Tate Britain, and the National Portrait Gallery. London also has a few parks that are perfect for a leisurely stroll, such as Hyde Park, St. James Park, and Greenwich Park.

There are currently no direct flights to long haul destinations from Romania. Travellers starting off from Romania who wish to travel in parts of the world that take more than six hours of flight time to reach can instead go through the many international airports that do have connections to Romania's airports.
