A trip to Romania is no exception to the old saying that the most fruitful path to the heart of a place is through the stomach.

Maramures is not for racing around and ticking off a top 10; even a bike can be too fast for this landscape.

I don’t know if the “Little Vienna” moniker implies flattery. I’ve been to Vienna and I’ll take Timisoara over Vienna any day.

The landscapes in the Carpathian Mountains are stunning, but to me, Romania’s true charm comes in meeting its people.

Bucharest’s oldest artery is arguably its most revealing. From the stately Cantacuzino Palace (today housing the George Enescu Museum) to the grandeur of the Romanian Athenaeum, bordering the scar-marked Revolution Square, it’s clear why the Romanian capital was once dubbed ‘little Paris’.

The largest of the Balkan countries is rich in cultural heritage has a dramatic mountain scenery, the unique Danube Delta and a stunning coastline at the Black Sea.

Transylvania, best known for its castles, mountains, and of course Dracula, will stun you. Not to forget the parties in the capital Bucharest. And Romanians even know how to make great beer.

Romania is extraordinary and it’s like a movie character, brings authenticity and helps viewers to escape into a world where our characters live.
I love Romania and I feel great here. I was treated like a king, although I wasn’t expecting it. I plan to return and visit the whole country. It was a wonderful journey.
It's a beautiful city. I was here 10 years ago and a lot has changed since. The Old Town has come back to life, it is full of people, cafes, the buildings have been restored, it's very nice.
Andy Garcia about Bucharest
It’s the timelessness of it which is so remarkable, almost out of some of those stories one used to read as a child. It’s quite remarkable. People are yearning for that sense of belonging and identity and meaning!
