Maybe you’ve heard of Nadia Comaneci or Gica Hagi, the Danube Delta or the Count Dracula, but Romania has a hundred times more to offer to the tourist craving for beauty and uniqueness.
This small country hides within, from the Black Sea shore to the highest picks of Carpathians, an amazing diversity of natural resources, a history full of legends and traditions, an abundance of religious architecture, medieval towns and castles impossible to match in Europe or even worldwide.
But Romania is no only a land of legends, beautiful edifices, but also of brilliant people who changed the world.
Today we’re taking a look at 10 Unique Experiences You Can Only Have in Romania:
1. The richness deep down: the healing power of “sacred” water
Your body is your temple and there’s no better place to take care of the temple than Romania.
From the bottom up, Romania hides inside the Carpathian Mountains the “sacred” water which, as legend tells, healed Hercules’ wounds made by Hydra.
Herculane is currently the most famous and oldest health resort in Romania, dating from Roman times, when it was named “The sacred waters of Hercules.”
The miracle is scientifically called balneotherapy and Romania has no less than 3,000 mineral and thermal springs, meaning more than one third of Europe’s miraculous waters.
