The most unique and unknown destinations in Romania

Discover unknown and unforgettable destinations in Romania


Romania has many other attractions than Dracula’s castle, Transylvania or the communist buildings of Bucharest. Like elsewhere in the whole world, some of the most beautiful sights are places that most visitors have never heard about…

First, situated in the National Park of Nera, in South-Western Romania, Bei Eye Lake (Ochiul Beiului), also known as The Garden of Eden, it’s a lake of charming beauty with turquoise waters. Due to its warm waters, even during winter, the water doesn’t freeze and for this reason, the lake serves as a home for many migratory birds. 

In the most unique and unknown destinations in Romania, you must also visit the Horses Waterfall, the highest waterfall in Romania with one of the most difficult canyons in the country, is located in Maramures region, near the National Park of Rodnei Mountains, in the Eastern Carpathians.

The name of the place comes from a legend, according to which a horse stallion was attacked by a bear during a storm on the edge of the plateau, and the frightened animals fell and died. The waterfall and its surroundings are considered one of the most beautiful places in Romania.

Or even, the Berca Mud Volcanoes, a spectacular geological and botanical reservation, with small volcano-shaped structures, only a few meters high, caused by the eruption of mud and natural gases. The muddy volcanoes form a dynamic landscape, that invites you to stay for hours in a row to watch their gush, bubbling, bubbles and mollusc torrents. It is close enough for a day trip from Bucharest.

Then, you could also visit the Tunnel of Love. It was probably the most romantic destination handcrafted by mother nature and by the once passing trains. Nowadays, the place is an abandoned railway section and it’s hiding in a secluded forest in western Romania. The tunnel was discovered by a couple of photographers, by pure hazard and it offers the perfect lighting and surroundings for a proposal, a photo session or just for daydreaming.

The clay castle Valea Zanelor (the Valley of fairies) is close to Sibiu and it can be used as a one-of-the kind venue for events, meetings, incentives as well as a tourist destination for groups and individuals. The impressive Fagaras Mountains beautifully complement the castle made only from natural construction materials.

The construction has a unique design that imitates the mountain peaks and reminds its viewers of Gaudí’s art.
