The UNESCO Heritage of Romania
The UNESCO World Heritage of Romania is an excellent starting point for your vacation in our country. They are the highlights of Romania’s heritage and each of them has its own stories and legends to share. Their tour will take you from the dawn of the first millennium to medieval times when churches were built to celebrate victories or to defend communities and even a bit in the future, in the youngest European land, the Danube Delta. More than reminders of culture and nature, the UNESCO Heritage Sites of Romania also tell the story of their local communities, mostly villages where people live and work traditionally. Include at least two of these sites in your next holiday in Romania and take your time to discover them and their nearby attractions.
