Study trips to Romania – fascination between the Black Sea and Count Dracula
Only since 2007, Romania became part of the European Union and since then more and more open for culture enthusiastic european travelers. For a holiday on the Black Sea, or a study tour of this fascinating country, the eastern european country has many different faces and so at least a visit once is it worth. The Transylvania region, better known as Transylvania, is since Bram Stoker’s novel “Dracula” well known and exerts a special fascination for travelers.
Romania and Transylvania Tours – Ancient castles and lots of history
But far from creepy literature it may be worthwhile to view something more closely the history of Romania and Transylvania, perhaps as part of a study trip to Romania, too. Finally in the 5th Century BC, the first settlers came to Romania and settled here. The country has a checkered history behind them – in 106 began the conquest by the Romans and later Romania had a magnetic attraction for different tribes during the Migration. Also, the central Transylvania has a lot going through and was about the middle of the 12th Century, first conquered by German settlers. Then also probably the name “Transylvania” is back to lead. As a witness still many historic buildings stand, such as ancient castles and churches, exciting from the past and for history buffs worth seeing.
Bucharest – Iridescent capital between tradition and modernity
Anyone planning a study trip to Romania will most probably also visit Bucharest. Finally, the state capital with about 2 million inhabitants is the sixth largest city in the European Union. Already since 1659 Bucharest can be described as capital of Romania and the city is still the cultural center of Romania. The city has to offer various universities and colleges as well as numerous theaters and museums. A real eye-catcher of the cosmopolitan city is also its architecture, which is due to its French influence and its often called “Paris of the East”.
