Come to Romania, you will be amazed to discover a country that is rediscovering itself.
We dare you to a 7 day journey back in time to a country spanning an entire universe.
Your adventure will start in the mountains where, every spring, for the past 2000 years, sheppards have patiently guided their flock up the tall picks.
Forget about modern telecom and internet. Let go of electricity, hot water or even basic plumbing.
We will take you back to an original self and allow you to look into the semi nomad archetypal human state of mind who is deeply interconnected to the nature around.
We will then make a leap in time and arrive in rural medieval Transylvania, where you can see the birth place of one of Romania's most influential philosophers, Emil Cioran. From there we will drive to the oldest continuously inhabited medieval fortress, the current city of Sighisoara.
For your next destination you will have the once in a life time opportunity to meet a most flamboyant community - the gypsies.
You will have an wonderful experience when you can safely meet them in their own homes amongst their families. You will be delighted to see what it really means to enjoy gypsy hospitality and good spirits.
As the days pass we will continue to make our journey back to the present. Bucharest can easily claim a hundred years of history in only a few guided steps.
From the vibrant interbelic period to the grey of communism and finally to the present day local artists, designer shops, theaters, clubs or underground happenings you will be guaranteed to find something you can resonate to.
