Rick Steves’ Europe Travel Guide | Check your local public television station for this Rick Steves’ Europe episode or watch it on https://www.ricksteves.com/watch-read-listen/video/tv-show We’ll tour Romania’s vibrant capital, Bucharest, with its “Little Paris of the East” architecture and lingering reminders of a brutal communist dictator. Then we’ll head into Transylvania, where we’ll visit fortified churches, cobbled merchant towns like Sighișoara, and castles made famous by an imported German king and the real-life Dracula. Finally we’ll explore Maramureș, where everyday life still feels like an open-air folk museum.

  1. Vlad Tepes, who gloried under the fabriquet Dracula, is a good hook to bring tourists in Romania and than they will see also medieval cities, wonderful scenery interesting Romanian traditions and hospitable peoples. I highlight could be visiting Romania around 1 November and participating at Halloween party at Dracula Castle or in Sighisoara Citadel, Dracula's birthplace.

  2. Steve, would have been worth mentioning Hungarians since it is Hungarian populated. The culture is not at all strictly Romanian there. Besides this, it is am awesome video as always!

  3. My grandparents are from Romania and I've wanted to visit all my life. I tear up when watching about our home country..beautiful land and beautiful people! Much love from USA!
