Romania, Carpathians, Transylvania – not one of these brand names have been translated correctly
One of the most interesting ecumenical sites in Romania is just a stone´s throw away from Bucharest,
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.
Despite being one of the closest travel destinations to Bucharest, Buzau county is widely unknown by tourists as it has not been included in publicised tourist programs- up until now. Romania Business Insider will publish a series of articles about travel destinations in Buzau county. The articles are provided by Monteoru Renaissance, a local tourism development association which has recently launched an initiative to promote the region.
