This tour is made for those of you who are looking to discover the oldest parts of Romania – Dobrogea and its natural elements: water and earth. Surrounded by the Danube river and the Black Sea, water is the element that defines Dobrogea. That means that you will get to discover the local cuisine based mostly on fish and that you will visit the Danube Delta, the most beautiful delta in Europe, with its wild horses’ sanctuary at Letea village. And, of course, you will get to see a local traditional performance. Earth is what keeps locals here. You will get to visit ancient Roman strongholds and discover some very nice made-for-bike roads. A visit to Romania would not be perfect without visiting the famous Dracula’s Castle and the Peles Castle, the Romanian Royal summer palace, so we’ll take you there at the end of our tour.

  • Tropaeum Traiani – a Roman monument built it 109AD to commemorate the victory at Adamclisi
  • Cape Kaliakra – breathtaking sceneries on the Bulgarian seaside
  • Dobrogea’s ancient strongholds – the remains of ancient communities settled in the area over the years
  • Dobrogea Gorges – some of the oldest rock formations in Europe. The area was once covered by the Black Sea and by coral reefs
  • Danube Delta – the largest and best preserved of Europe’s deltas
  • Mud volcanoes – one of the most interesting mixed reservations (geological and botanical) in Romania
  • Luana’s Land – caves with ancient mysteries and enigmatic inscriptions
  • Rucar-Bran Pass – a spectacular view over Bucegi Mountains
  • Dracula’s Castle – home of Vlad the Impaler, known as the inspiration for Bram Stoker’s titular character in the novel “Dracula”
  • Peles Castle – a masterpiece of German new-Renaissance architecture and the Romanian Royal Family’s summer residence until 1947
  • The tour starts and ends in Bucharest, so book one additional day for visiting the Palace of Parliament, second largest building in the world!
