From Cluj-Napoca: 2-Day Bucovina & Painted Monasteries Tour

1. From Cluj-Napoca: 2-Day Bucovina & Painted Monasteries Tour

To begin this two-day tour, you will be picked up from your hotel in Cluj-Napoca by your guide and start the journey to Bukovina. On your way to Bukovina, you will make a quick stop in Bistrita, the northernmost fortified Transylvanian town. In a short walking tour through the town, you will enjoy the medieval legends and explore its narrow streets. Bukovina is especially famous for its painted monasteries, and over these two days, you will visit the most representative of all seven. During the second part of the day, you will have the chance to visit the most famous painted monastery in the world, Voronet Monastery. The frescoes of the monastery are dominated by intense shades of blue, and the southern wall depicts the best-preserved ‘Last Judgement’ fresco in Romania. The monastery was built in 1488 by Prince Stephen the Great in order to commemorate one of his victories against the Ottoman Empire. Enjoy a traditional dinner with a folkloric dance show at a nearby restaurant then stay overnight in Gura Humorului. You will start the day with a short drive to Humor Monastery, a small cross-shaped church built in 1530, dedicated to the Dormition of Virgin. Red hues dominate the exterior frescoes showing scenes from the lives of saints, as well as significant moments from the locals’ lives, such as the wars with the Turks. Moldovita Monastery is the next stop on your itinerary. The highlight of the day is Transrarau Highway. With a total length of 28 kilometers (17 miles), it is known as the Treasury Road. You will be amazed by its curves and the scenery. It goes up to 1400 meters in altitude, and from there you will have a hike through the Rarau Mountains. You will have the chance to see the rock formations that emerged from the ground millions of years ago in order to give birth to these mountains. After you have filled your lungs with fresh air it is time for lunch at a fish farm.

What people are saying about Western Romania

You see a lot of Romania in 2 days.

Our guide, Vali, spoke excellent English and was a great driver. He gave us a lot of information about life in Romania in the last 35 years. When we reached Sibiu, Sighisoara, Brasov, Bran and Sinaia our guide knew where to park to minimize walking. The 2 of us plus our guide were in a 5 person van. I loved the Transfagarasan Road. I've never been on a road with 10 avalanche sheds before. If you have any motion sickness or fear of height you might want to ask for an alternative route. They use various hotels in Sighisoara. You should check your big suitcase in your Bucharest hotel and bring only what you need overnight, as we did, because you cannot assume there will be an elevator. Our hotel,Hotel Rex, had no elevator so we had to walk up 4 flights of stairs. The window barely opened so at the end of August we were very hot. Breakfast began at 8AM but the coffee pot was broken so it took 30 minutes to get coffee. It was all part of the adventure.

An enjoyable fascinating tour.

Our guide was knowledgeable, congenial and very organized. The hotels were good especially the second one. Food was interesting and Romanian. The tour involved a lot of driving but we saw a lot of the countryside and some great castles and monasteries. Valentin, our guide, was exceptional. Thanks you for a great introduction to your country.

All the sites were very beautiful and very much worth the visit. Be aware though that the itinerary is not completely as described. The time was not allocated well (and traffic made it worse). We missed visiting the upper floor of Peles Castle as well as the Sinaia Monastery and the Azuga winery. The Transfagarasan Highway was also skipped.

Nice scenery and a knowledgeable driver. The hotel in Sighisoara was quite poor. It was clean but everything was tiny and very basic. Peles castle was closed when we got there, a big disappointment.

Great guide

Really enjoyed the two day tour, but didn't have time for the wine tasting as advertised. That was the major reason we selected the particular tour. Otherwise was great.
