Known for the forested region of Transylvania (See Overland for road trip suggestion)
Romania has dramatic mountain scenery and a coastline on the Black Sea.
Lots of great hikes and historic sites, and most everything is inexpensive.
Though Romania and Ukraine share a long border, there is no crossing near the Black sea. The shortest path is through Moldova and the district of Transnistria.
Transylvania » “This is a wonderfully underrated road-trip destination. From Bucharest, take Road 1 towards the Carpathian mountains, to the well-preserved medieval towns of Braşov and Sighişoara. On the way, you’ll often be surrounded by dense, dark woodland and craggy peaks, where there are bears and wolves, and pass the time spotting castles and horse and carts. In Zărneşti, we stayed at Pensiunea Hora cu Brazi near Piatra Craiului national park and enjoyed a slower pace of life, sitting in the farm’s garden and enjoying the homemade and traditional food, wine and spirits.” Sam Wallis via The Guardian
