Location and climate


Due to its location in the heart of Europe, Romania can cater for tourists almost all year round. In mountainous and sub-mountainous ares (Maramures, Bucovina, Oltenia, Transylvania), the climate favors tourism, except in those years with extremely high average temperatures.

The coast can be seen, in general, from May/June, when the temperature of the air is the best, but the sea water is still cold. People can go on the coast also in September, especially during the first half. For treatments, the coastal resorts are open all year long.

Its best to visit the Danube Delta from April to October, when many fishermen go fishing in the Delta.

The sub-mountainous area is best visited from the second half of April to October. The most special mouths are May (when the trees flourish, creating the feeling of the vegetable boom).

The snow reigns from November to February. In the sub-mountainous areas, the trips are also difficult due to the snow and low temperatures. But people forget the cold weather in December, fascinated by the special customs and traditions (carols, feasts) of Christmas and New Year. The most attractive are in Maramures, Transylvania, Oltenia, Bucovina.
