A large country of more than a few contrasts Romania is one of the most curious places to visit in Europe. Here meet the cultural influences of the East and the West, as well as of the Balkans, to create a unique language and atmosphere. The Daki, Saxons, Romans, Hungarians and other ethnic groups as well as leading figures of Romania's recent history have left an interesting architectural heritage and important historic sites in Bucharest, Sighişoara, Sibiu, Iaşi, Timişoara and Cluj-Napoca. Contrasts in Romania do not end up with its history and culture. Even more, they are more strongly observed in its nature. The country, where is located the fertile delta of Danube and a large part of the Black Sea coast, is also the home of the Carpathian Mountains. Romania has lovely sea resorts like Constanţa and magnificent mountain resorts like Brasov. The best known and preferred type of accommodation in Romania is hotels. These are independent properties and hotels from international brands, which cover the whole spectrum from low-, mid and high-range hotels. Apart-hotels are gaining lots of popularity as well as private apartments, guest houses and hostels.
