Think Romania and in all probability dreary, mental images arise of a typical, communist nation – grey, grim and, quite simply, boring.

There’s an indefinable something about Romania that enchants visitors. Despite the breathless pace of modernisation, the essence of Romania still lies in the old-world ethos of its countryside – unspoilt and thoroughly laid back.

Green carpeted mountains, flocks of sheep and conical haystacks seem to materialise from the storybooks of your childhood.
