Romania, located in South-eastern Europe, is not the usual travel destination for many. However, it is a country full of interesting sights and beautiful natural landscapes. Romania is also is a relatively cheap alternative for your European holiday. However, just because it is cheaper, it does not mean there is less to see and do while in Romania. The medieval cities and countryside of Romania is actually full of beautiful landscapes and colourful structures that would delight any traveller.
Some of the more interesting places to see in Romania include the Bigar Waterfall. It is located in a protected area of Izvorul Bigăr in the Bozovici territory in the Caraş-Severin County. The waterfall is one of the most unusual in the world thanks to the way the water spreads and falls in small shreds of water. Another must-see is the Romanian Tunnel of Love, also known as the Love Tunnel. It is an old and abandoned railway track segment in Caransebesh County. The railway track is surrounded by trees creating a romantic and very photogenic green tunnel. The Bucegi Mountains in central Romania near the city of Brașov should not be missed as well. East of the mountains is a steep slope down to another tourist destination, the Prahova Valley. Higher up is the Bucegi Plateau where you’ll find majestic rock formations called the Sphinx and Babele.
Before booking that flight to Romania, it is always good to know when the best time to visit the country. There are generally two things to consider when searching for cheap flights – weather conditions and travel costs. Romania enjoys a temperate-continental climate and temperatures can vary throughout the year. The country has four distinct seasons – spring months occur between March to May, summer season from June to August, fall season from September to November while winter months are from December to February. Considering the weather, the best time to visit Romania would be from March to October when the temperature is not too cold and roads are accessible. However, every season is a good time to travel. Winter can be a good season for skiing while summer season can be enjoyable for relaxing by the beach on the Black Sea coast. For a low cost holiday in Romania, the best months would be between September to June when accommodation prices are low and airlines have cheaper flight prices.
