Romania - moving around the country
The quality of roads in Romania is quite bad, there is no lighting, and sometimes there are no markings or road signs. However, you can rent a vehicle in major cities. In order to do this, you will need an international driver’s license and a credit card. Also, the driver must be over 21 years old. The average cost of renting a car is 30 Euros per day. There are taxis, and even municipal taxi companies in most cities. Basically, payment is made according to the meter. Despite the fact that there are several airports operating on the territory of Romania, domestic air traffic is still poorly developed. The flight costs an average of $80, which is very expensive for a small country.
Nature and parks of Romania
The high Carpathian Mountains that pass through the whole country are the main, but not the only, pride of Romania. Rocks, mountain serpentines and cool coniferous forests are full of ancient legends, wild animals and national parks along which tourists and locals take leisure walks. The mountains constitute a part of the Alpine folded mountains, and the highest ridges reach 2,544 meters (the Moldoveanu peak). One of the most memorable places is the Iron Gate, a natural narrowing of the ridge, with a panoramic view from the top. Since ancient times Carpathian Mountains have become a part of mysterious stories and legends, most of which have survived to this present day, enveloping the whole country with the mysterious fleur and the unquenchable interest of tourists. An example of this is the legend of Vlad Dracula regularly attracting crowds of tourists to the southern country.
