Transylvania and Wildlife Watching in Romania

Romania is a ruggedly beautiful country and on this long weekend we uncover dramatic mountains, Medieval towns and fairy tale castles.

In season we have the unique opportunity to watch European brown bears emerge from the thick forests to feed at a local reserve.
