The book I read to research this post was Rough Guide to Romania which is a very good book which I bought from a local secondhand bookstore Romania was part of the communist bloc and was the only communist country not to have soviet troops there to keep the peace They had a dictator called Ceausceau who modelled himself on the communist country North Korea and had a big palace built for himself in Bucharest Nowadays of course that is history Romania is a democracy If you are travelling there from Britain British Airways do flights from London Gatwick the Romanian National Carrier do flights from Heathrow Most visitors either go skiing to the North of Bucharest in the mountains or go to the Black Sea Resorts The main town on the Black Sea coast is Constanta A while back I did do a post on the Bulgarian Black Sea Resorts which might be of interest Some tourists visit Walloonnia Transylvannia the home of the real Dracula In this area the castles have a distinctive style of their own Trannsylvannia was a separate kingdom to the rest of Romania until 1920 The name Dracula means son of Dracul Vlad the Impaler's dad was called Vlad Dracul The count is known as Dracula outside of Romania Vlad the Impaler in Romania The story Dracula took in many elements of Romanian folklore including a countess who murdered and drank the blood of virgins also the Jack the Ripper murders in London If you go skiiing there are plenty of english speaking coaches at the resorts and they are probably suited to beginners than experienced skiiers If you go to Bucharest it isn't as lively as many European capitals but it does have a fair few museums and rather interestingly a fortified police headuarters which heralds from its communist days Many people go on a cruise of the River Danube which is the second longest river in Europe and flows into the Black Sea
