The Republic of Romania is one of the most picturesque countries in Europe. Legends and fairy tales, high mountains and deep lakes, endless forests and gentle sea – it’s all Romania. This country has a rich medieval heritage, including stunning castles, ancient churches, beautiful towns and villages. The main natural feature of Romania is the Carpathian mountain system, which runs through the country. The capital of the state – Bucharest has long been famous for its cultural heritage and sights.
The culture and traditions of Romania are very diverse, as they combine the roots of different peoples and cultures. Romania's rich cultural heritage abounds with folklore patterns and legends that are unique to this region.
