On the Road in Romania

We visited three cities in Romania (Sibiu, Brasov, and Bucharest), driving between them all with a rental car. I took a lot of pictures on the road that didn’t quite fit into my blog posts about the cities, so here is a post of just pictures of things I saw while driving through Romania. (Some are included in the other posts because I liked them enough to share them twice.)

We passed many farmers driving horse carts on the road and in their fields.

Romanian field
A village near Bran, Romania. Horses, cows, and sheep shared the land. In this area they did not appear to be fenced in, although some of the horses were ground tied.
Romanian cows
Cows roaming freely in a village in Transylvania.

  1. How is it to drive in Romania? Big difference compared to other countries you have been to? 🙂

    1. Not very different, actually! It was pretty much like driving anywhere else in Europe. The roads were all in pretty good condition. In a few places we encountered roadworks. To me, that signals that someone is worried about their improvements!
      The only difference I can think of is seeing the horse carts on the main roads, and lots of stray animals.
      One thing that seems to be the same everywhere – it’s hard to find parking in the cities!
