Seen many archaeological sites in Europe? Ours are different. You will be surprised to find out that Romania has a lot to offer on this, as its area was inhabited more than 2000 years ago by a civilization, that was, at some point, feared even by the mighty Roman Empire and finally conquered by it in 106. The Dacians, but also the Romans built significant cities in fortresses and their ruins are still visible. But why are they different from other ancient ruins? It is because the Dacians were building in the mountains and on high hills, so simply going to the fortress will give you amazing views of one of the most wild area of Carpathians - Orastie Mountains. The trip is our favorite package as it combines history and trips in nature, all of them surprising. In summer, in the area of the fortresses, there are many reenactment festivals. If the trip takes place during the event, you can also witness reenactments, old Dacian crafts and objects.

Our main purpose for the trip was getting to know Romanian history better and this was exactly what we got! Our guide was knowledgeable and did everything to make sure that we were having a good time. A couple of days spent hiking and admiring picturesque natural sceneries.
