Romania #2 (September 2010)

The second week of my stay in Romania I spent in the north and the east of the country. In the Maramures and Bucovina I drove around by car from village to village looking for wooden or painted churches. I ended my trip in Tulcea near the Danube, which looks like a completely different country: steppe, marshland, reed.

Transylvania Hotspot (September 2010)

Transylvania is a region in Central Romania that has seen many rulers, colonists and invaders over the ages. It's an excellent hotspot for checking out WHS. I stayed in Sibiu (a tentative WHS itself), and from there made day trips to the mysterious Dacian Fortresses, 2 Villages with Fortified Churches, the citadel-town of Sighisoara and the delicate Monastery of Horezu (which is technically just south of Transylvania, but well within reach from Sibiu).
