Romania Luxury Travel
Venture off the beaten path when you travel to Romania with Cox & Kings. Enjoy insider experiences, pretty little villages, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, unique cultural interactions and a host of extraordinary moments on one of our Romania luxury tour journeys.
Begin your journey in the capital of Bucharest with an introduction to the country from an expert Cox & Kings guide. Travel through the Olt Valley to Sibiu, one of the oldest towns in Transylvania. Explore the town on a guided walking tour, including the grand main square; the 14th- century Evangelic Church, which boasts the tallest tower in Transylvania; and Romania’s oldest cast-iron bridge, the Liars Bridge, which was named for the sweet-talking merchants that set up shop nearby.
Delve into the history and legends of the beautiful medieval town of Brasov, which was founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211 as one of the region’s seven walled citadels. Stop by Alba Iulia, which served as a large military and economic base during Roman times, and see the exquisite temples, mosaics, thermal baths and statues and amphitheaters.
Romania is perhaps most famous today for its UNESCO World Heritage painted monasteries. On a series of guided visits, get up close and personal with some of Europe’s most stunning works of art as you explore the Moldovita and Sucevita monasteries, which feature vivid mural frescoes, created to educate and entertain illiterate soldiers and peasants of the 15th and 16th centuries.
Travel to Sighisoara, the birthplace of Vlad Dracula, also known as Vlad the Impaler, ruler of the province of Walachia and inspiration for Bram Stoker’s Count Dracula. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this perfectly intact 16th-century gem with towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches rivals the historic streets of Old Prague or Vienna.
Be sure to spend an afternoon in the charming city of Targu Mures. Named literally for a “market” on the Mures River, the town enjoys the best of both Romanian and Hungarian cultures. Highlights include the Culture Palace, the Eastern Orthodox Churches, the fortress, the famous Teleki library. In nearby Campulung Moldovenesc, visit the fascinating Wood Art Museum, which contains more than 15,000 pieces of highly decorated wood.
