Europe on a Shoestring - Romania (Chapter)
This is the Romania chapter from Lonely Planet's Europe on a Shoestring guidebook.
Beautiful and beguiling, Romania’s rural landscape remains relatively untouched by the country’s urban evolution. It’s a land of aesthetically stirring hand-ploughed fields, sheep-instigated traffic jams, and lots and lots of homemade plum brandy.
