Eastern Europe & Russia
Drobeta Turnu Severin
Don't go to
in winter -- it could be depressing. But in spring and summer, with all the old buildings and villas -- often real palaces -- in the shade of kind of a forest of old trees, it gets really romantic. It's a city for walking, discovering narrow, leafy backstreets; getting lost in old, quite chaotic, but charming quarters. You can't compare it with any other big city in Europe.
y is not much to see as tourist site, but man do they have a night life!!! Get to know people and u will absolutlly love it!!!
. Just an absolutely phenomenal place to be lazy, relax, and meet some interesting locals. The locals in Sighisoara (and Romania as a whole) were the nicest people I met in my life.
is a great city with a lot of nice things to see. And the nightlife is the best. The beer is dirt cheap and the rest.... Well, smile and enjoy.
is a good place to visit. I've spent some time in there and it was very nice. I also visited other capitals in the eastern Europe, and though Bucharest is not as spectacular as Budapest in architecture of buildings, it has its good parts. It's not very organized and still has a few problems with the cleaning of the streets, but most certainly you don't go there to inspect the city. You go to visit and have fun. And fun you'll have. If you don't find tourist info, ask people and they'll help. Almost everyone speaks English and is very helpful. They'll tell you where you should go and what you should stay away from.
I visited Romania, including
in Oct.'05 and was surprised with how friendly everyone was throughout my entire two week trip. Romanians are very polite, hard working people.
