Romania - Bears and castles galore

More East European adventures here, spending a  few days in Bucharest, and travelling out to Draculas homeland, Transylvania, before a trip to little Moldova.

A key highlight during this trip was to visit 'Libearty', the brown bear sanctuary in the small village of Zarnesti. This is a place filled with adult and baby brown bears, that have been resued from miserable lives of abuse at the hands of cruel humans. Able to roam free in large open enclosures, but used to human contact and so quite willing to come up very close, I'd reommend a trip here to anyone visiting Romania. The babies are incredibly adorable,and make for some fabulous photo opportunities. It's also nice to be able to contribute to their conservation.

The 'Dracula' castle in Bran and Peles Castle (the royal family  castle, rather than the Brazilian footbal legend), in Sinaia, made for entertaining stops outside of Bucharest, Bran in particular very picturesque. After a few stops in Rasnov and Brasov to take in panoramic views and some delicious salted caramel butter ice cream, it is time to head towards Europes least visited country...



Next: Moldova and Transnistria..the non existent country
Previous: Kiev and (almost) Chernobyl
