When to Go
  • High Season

Romania has its share of the continental climate that prevails in most parts of the Balkans. The best time to visit Romania is from April to October when the beautiful countryside warms up enough to make your visits comfortable. In the spring, the blooming forests and alpine prairies of the Carpathians give way to jaw-dropping views. Rains come to a halt starting in April, which means that your photos will be extra dazzling thanks to low humidity. Autumn hosts vistas painted in warm and bright colors of red and orange. The medieval castles in Sinaia and Bran look like they came straight out of a novel in the leaf cast.

  • Low Season

Visiting Romania in the low season from November to March may be a perfect chance to have the best places to visit in Romania all to yourself. If you do so, you will witness the melancholic and moody side of Transylvania, as the leafless trees among evergreens and the mists take over the pastoral lands. This is also the time for Romania’s myriad festivals—a great opportunity to experience Romanian culture.

Useful Tips for Romania Tours

money

Money Matters

The currency in Romania is the Romanian Leu. We recommend that you wait until you go to the city center to change your money. Exchange rates are usually more favorable in the city.

ATMs are available and credit cards are widely accepted, except in some rural areas and small shops.

We recommend carrying cash with you at all times.

Romania travel advice

The Food Scene

Romanian food is famous for its myriad cooking techniques and flavors from around the Balkans, and its age-old local culinary practices.

Try home-cooked micis and sarmale, two of the most iconic dishes of the Romanian countryside, and have a jar of authentic zacusca to take home with you.

The Balkans is famous for locally-made liqueurs and brandies. Tuica is the aromatic Romanian variety, which is an absolute must to try.

Romania travel advice

Solo Travels

Are you traveling alone? You can stay in a single room if your accommodation in Romania has the single supplement option.

You can also choose to share a room with a solo traveler of the same gender.

Feel free to contact your tour leader if you require assistance.
