Romania Travel BlogTravel guides, itineraries, abandoned places, street art and off-the-beaten-path places in Romania
Hello and welcome to our Romania travel blog. You will find all our Romania blog posts in this section of our website.
Maybe you found our Romania travel blog because you are considering visiting Romania, or perhaps you are partway through planning a trip to the Balkans region of Europe. Whatever the reason, we hope we can provide some useful resources and travel tips for Romania.
Our story with Romania is similar to other countries in the region: the first we visited we focussed on the touristy places in and around Transylvania. However, our more recent visits have concentrated on lesser-visited parts of the country like the Danube Delta.
Our Romania blog posts are generally aimed at independent travellers and backpackers like us and have a strong focus on travelling around using public transport, staying in budget accommodation and exploring off-the-beaten-path and lesser-visited places.
