Transylvania and Dracula's Castle Full Day Tour from Bucharest

664 reviews
No visit to Romania would be complete without ticking off Transylvania, where ancient castles are set against backdrops of dramatic rolling hills. See the best of the region without having to worry about car hire or navigation on a day trip from Bucharest, which offers a great introduction to local history for first-time visitors.

this memorial is really looking like a monument designed by someones who were forced to create something, with a gun pointed to their head. as a Jew whose family had experienced the Holocaust horrors, in Romania, I feel humiliated by this poor hided shameful memorial.

I spent an hour walking around, reading and thinking about the information. I agree with some others that this is a somewhat cold and austere place. The information provided is chilling, of course, and the history is disturbing, but I wish there could be more of a tribute to those who perished, some faces and memories of the wonderful men, women and children who were slain. It is hard to tell from the street that this is a memorial and one would be unlikely to examine it unless one went looking for it in the first place. I am glad the government makes clear statements about those responsible for the deaths, but I wish there were more of a celebration of the wonderful Jewish architects, doctors, lawyers and workers who were a vibrant and productive part of Bucharest life in the 1930s before the Iron Guard and the Nazis started killing them. About half of the 800,000 Jews who lived in Romania before World War II were killed during the war. I wish there were photos of those good people to humanize this memorial and draw people inside from the street.

Stumbled upon this Memorial during a stroll. It is very nicely done and very respectful. Make sure to look for the letters engraved on the pillar.

A simple but clever memorial to Romanian Jews, victims of the holocaust. There are 6 principal exhibits on this slightly unkempt corner overlooking the Dambovita. The memorial square feels unloved and neglected. The memorial consists of a memorial hall with victims names in an interesting striped shadow and light environment, an iron column on which Hebrew letters spell the word “remember” (zachor), an iron Roma wheel, an iron Star of David, stones on the iron grave and recovered tombstones (removed to be used as construction material). Many think this memorial is ugly but I’d use “ugly” in a different sense.

As allied to Nazi Germany, many Jews were deported and killed during the 1940s. This memorial is unusual compared to many others but the representation of Jewish symbols is very clever from the column, each layer with a Jewish symbol to the Star of David and the sunken mausoleum are very thought provoking. We should always remember in this age of extreme right wing party resurgence.
