Green Holidays in Romania

Romania's unique blend of Latin and Balkan cultures, rich history and baroque architecture make it a fascinating destination, but its scenic splendour is perhaps an even greater draw.

From the dramatic mountains and dark forests and Gothic castles of Transylvania to the unique eco-systems of the Danube Delta and relatively undeveloped Black Sea beaches, Romania is a truly diverse country.

Still off the radar for many, you can learn more about its 'green' appeal in Richard Hammond's article about ecotourism in Romania on our blog.

Ranging from rewarding volunteering opportunities to mountainside homestays, we feature some of the best holidays and places to stay in Romania, all of which you can reach by train.
