The landmarks are unremarkable. The food sucks. And the Romanian people themselves are depressingly down on their own country (but still nice).
Bucharest was a bore, except for the one terrific evening where we re-connected with an old friend living here. Transylvania was pretty, but relatively uninteresting. If you want nice views, castles, and charming villages, I would probably go a little more west to Austria.
Glad we tried Romania, but we just weren’t feeling it. I suspect most travelers won’t find it that great either.
Next stop: Budapest, Hungary.
