The country is rich in historical and architectural monuments, many of which are under the protection of UNESCO. Thus, a number of monasteries in the territory of the country have been included into the World Heritage List. One of the largest and best preserved monasteries is Voronet, known for the beauty of heavenly blue frescoes and often dubbed 'Sistine Chapel of the East'.

Speaking about Romania, we cannot ignore the attractions associated with the name of the famous Count Dracula. Bistrita was the favorite city of the “legendary” vampire. Its architecture is typical of Transylvanian cities: small, beautiful two-and three-storied houses, and a large cathedral in the main square. But the medieval town of Sighisoara is renowned for being the birthplace of Vlad Tepes, better known to us under the name of Dracula. The city is surrounded by a wall, turning it into a real fortress. Sighisoara is, in fact, one of the few inhabited fortresses in Europe. More than a hundred homes in Sighisoara preserved their original medieval form. Of great interest to tourists is the so-called Mountain Church of the 14th century with a unique wooden staircase and a clock tower with amazing chimes.
