We just got back from our winter trip to Romania, and it was such a magical place! It was snowing right until our plane touched down (we actually had to circle a few times before we could land) so by the time we arrived, it looked like a winter wonderland there.
We rented a car from Bucharest Airport and drove straight to Brasov to tour the Transylvania area for the next few days.
My favorite parts of the trip were: taking a day trip to Sighisoara, a pastel-colored town with beautiful views; discovering quaint shops and cafes in Brasov; enjoying the spa and grounds during our stay at the Teleferic Grand Hotel; visiting the old fortress in Rasnov; and seeing Peleș Castle, which looked straight out of a fairytale. Since Brasov is a ski town it was constantly bustling, but as soon as we ventured out on a drive it felt like we had the Transylvanian countryside all to ourselves. I loved it.
