Widely unknown by the large public, the county of Buzau- just 120 km from Bucharest - has become a famous destination for professional athletes, adrenalin sportsmen and adventure tourists. The very low populated forests, hills and mountains of Buzau are perfect for lots of sport and adventure activities like off-road tours, mountain biking, rafting, canyoning, paragliding, diving or other niche sports like bouldering. With international sport events, new bike tracks, organized tours and a special sport vacation offer in 2011, Buzau wants to promote itself as sport tourism destination to a larger audience in Romania and abroad.

Brasov was the capital of the Barsa Land, and is today an upcoming city – undoubtedly you will notice the recently built shopping malls and industrial estates as well as the sites still in development at the outskirts. The city looks back on 800 years of turbulent history at the point of intersection between Orient and Occident.

I suppose ‘Count Kálnoky’s Guesthouse’ in Miclosoara is no secret anymore, as this place has been in the media regularly and not only because of the occasional visits of the Prince of Wales. Miclosoara is about one hour north of Brasov in Szeklerland, Covasna County. So instead of Romanian, one is better advised to speak Hungarian with the local people.

Romania is regrettably, for one reason or the other - leaving Bucharest aside - not yet blessed with too many great hotels and accommodation venues. Finding a decent and satisfactory place for the night too often remains a lottery with only a few hits and far too many miss options. You will find plenty of Casas, Penisuneas or Hotels spread all over the country; but, unfortunately too often built only for the quick buck or without any knowledge or understanding of what the traveler needs and expects. Worse even if both are the case!
