The capital of Romania
One of Romania's tourist highlights is the Danube Delta, located near the Black Sea where the Danube ends. The delta, a wildlife and bird lover's paradise, is Europe's second largest delta, with over 2,000 miles of rivers, canals and marshes providing sanctuary to 3,450 animal species and 1,700 plant species.
Romania's architectural treasures include medieval castles, fortresses, churches and towers built as protection against invaders, many dating back 900 years. Transylvania, in Central Romania, includes medieval towns such as Sighisoara, Brasov and Sibiu. Legend has it that Bran Castle, built in the 1300s near Brasov, was home to Prince Vlad Tepes in the 1400s, prototype for Bram Stoker's Count Dracula. The 60-room castle, set atop a rock, has winding stairways, underground passages and 14th century artifacts.
The Painted Monasteries of Bucovina beckon art enthusiasts. Located in northeastern Romania and considered Byzantine masterpieces, these exquisite wall frescoes tell stories of saints, prophets, angels, demons, heaven and hell. Voronet, founded by Stephen the Great in the 1400s, is perhaps the best known monastery. Many of the Voronet frescoes used a particular shade of blue paint, the composition of which still eludes experts today.
