There are some places which you really have to see if you ever visit Romania. Since we are a country with all the landforms there's plenty to choose from however I made a top 10 with the ones I personally think are the best.
♦ Roumanian: Best Places 467980r81re9x9km
Peles Castle

♦ Roumanian: Best Places 14

Okay so our country has many beautiful castles but this one is my favourite! It's really big and the architecture is amazing. The castle can be found near Sinaia in Prahova County, nestled within the majestic Carpathian Mountains. This fantastic landmark was built by King Carol I of Romania between 1839 and 1914, and it was meant to serve as the monarch’s summer retreat. There are also many treasures in it. The Arsenal, for example, displays 1,600 examples of armor and weapons. You may enter the castle only with a guided tour though and you have to pay an amount of money at the entrance as well as some extra money if you wanna bring your cameras in.

Neamt Citadel

♦ Roumanian: Best Places 640px-Neamt_Citadel_05

This place is hugeee and only stone-made. I've been here once when I was around like 11-12. I don't remember much but I know it was really big and with some bridges in some parts of it which you can cross to go between the Citadel's different areas (the bridges are up in the air so no don't cross them if you are afraid of heights Razz ) The citadel was built as a fortified outpost that would protect the western border of Moldavia against the expansion of the Hungarian Kingdom. It can be found in the northeastern part of the Country, in close proximity to Targu Neamt in Neamt County.

Transfagarasan


♦ Roumanian: Best Places Transfagarasan-Romania-4


So you can't say you've been in Romania if you never crossed the Transfagarasan. This huge road is one of our most popular and well-known attractions. The road stretches for 60 miles from north to south, and it runs through some of the highest peaks in the country, including Moldoveanu and Negoiu. Built between 1970 and 1974 by Nicolae Ceausescu, the road was meant to provide quick and easy army access across the mountains in the event of a Soviet Union invasion. This means that the road was constructed using a military workforce, and it is estimated that its building process claimed the lives of 40 men. The Transfagarasan is known for its numerous hairpin turns and steep descents, which is why it can prove relatively difficult to traverse, especially for inexperienced drivers or bikers. Breathtaking panoramas and unique experiences are all in reach for those that get a chance to travel across this magnificent road.

Palatul Culturii (Culture's Palace)


♦ Roumanian: Best Places 25069
♦ Roumanian: Best Places Romania
Okay so this is the closest tourist attraction to my home. Very Happy  The Palace of Culture is an extraordinary palace that can be found in the city of Iasi in Romania. Even though the construction process started off nicely in 1906, the process had to be halted during World War I because of scarce resources. It wasn’t until October 11, 1925 that the Palace of Culture was finally completed and opened by King Ferdinand of Romania himself. During our modern times, the palace is home to 4 important museums. These are called The Museum of Science and Technology, The Museum of Ethnography, The Museum of Art and The Museum of History. During their visit, guests are able to admire numerous historically significant objects related to many fields, including decorative art, archaeology or documentation. Really recommend it!!
♦ Roumanian: Best Places 467980r81re9x9km
The Danube Delta

♦ Roumanian: Best Places 33_big

As popular as the Transfagarasan or maybe the most popular place of all the Romania this place is perfect for nature lovers! The majority of the Danube Delta, Europe’s second largest river delta, lies in Romania. Originally part of the Black Sea, the Danube Delta is a good place to observe nature. It is home to many unique species of plants and animals in Europe, as well as contains 23 different ecosystems, including some of the world’s largest wetlands. Previous visitors rave about the spectacular sunsets and highly recommend taking a slow boat ride on the river.

Mamaia Beach


♦ Roumanian: Best Places 3


Summer, sun, hot days and ice-cream... The Mamaia beach is one of our most popular beaches in Romania. Located on the Black Sea, Mamaia is Roman’s most popular seaside resort. It has great white sand beaches, just made for sunning or people-watching. Mamaia has a water park, but activities are limited for small children. Adults, however, might enjoy a few lessons at the wind-surfing academy.

Turda Saltworks


♦ Roumanian: Best Places 082812271665167551


Time to cook? You're out of salt? Well come and enjoy the Turda saltworks and get all the salt you need. ♦ Roumanian: Best Places RomaniaLol. Joking. This place was a very important salt source ever since the times of the Roman Empire, but salt mining was particularly popular between the 15th and 17th century, especially during the Hungarian occupation of Turda.  Nowadays, this place flaunts its own amphitheatre, treatment rooms and a fantastic salty lake that has extraordinary curative properties. Really recommend these kind of bathings (within a salt mine). They are very healthy especially for lungs. Smile

The painted monasteries


♦ Roumanian: Best Places B_UtvhaW8AAUDnZ
♦ Roumanian: Best Places Romania

Okay so what this country has in a large number? MONASTERIES. Seriously now. Like I don't think there's one single big city in Romania where there aren't one or two. But this one is called the painted monastery and lucky for you I've just been here this year in april during a school trip Very Happy What is so special about it is that the outside of the building is all painted with portraits of saints and prophets as well as other religious scenes. The monastery itself is also surrounded by really huge stone walls. This picture was made during summer but when I've been here the flowers were not still bloomed. It was actually still snowing but even so the scenes were magnificent. 
♦ Roumanian: Best Places 467980r81re9x9km
The Sphinx of Bucegi


♦ Roumanian: Best Places Povestea-Omului-si-a-Babelor

And here we have a stone. Wohooo Very Happy Lol. But a more special stone. The Bucegi Sphinx can be found in the Bucegi Mountains, at an altitude of 7,270 feet. The Sphinx of Bucegi was named this way because it resembles a human head and because it bears a close resemblance to the Egyptian Sphinx. Good place to visit and take some pictures Razz 
♦ Roumanian: Best Places Romania♦ Roumanian: Best Places 467980r81re9x9km
Maramures

♦ Roumanian: Best Places Photo

So since we are still in the mountains we can't end this before mentioning the Maramures area. I might be biased, but Maramures, with its time-capsule villages, magical surroundings and ancient customs that have been kept alive like nowhere else, is perhaps the best-kept secret of Europe for the seekers of authentic experiences. It’s a place where people still grow animals for food and use horse-drawn carts to get around, where household items and tools are still handcrafted by local artisans, and where working the land is and has always been the main occupation.
♦ Roumanian: Best Places 467980r81re9x9km
OVER... Not! Razz There are many places where you can go while visiting Romania but this is what I remembered as being the most known and important. As I said in the introduction thread we have all the types of landforms so it's easy to change between them if you ever get bored of one type. ^^

Most of these places are beautiful, yes!  Though I think my favorite thing to experience would be being a passenger in a car or bus being driven by a professional driver over the Transfagarasan!  (Then again, could a bus really be driven around all those hairpin turns in a safe manner?)

It has two traffic lanes of 92 kilometers long. Because of the countless turns, the average speed is maximum 40 km per hour. Transfagarasan Road is opened for only a few months every year, usually from July until October. During this period there are many tourists and there are areas where you can grab a bus and check it out. I wouldn't worry about it though. Yes there are many cars and many people who like visiting it but even so everybody is careful and the drivers are fine. It is a popular area so there are taken measures for a safe travelling.
