Our home base while in Romania was Brasov. A very picturesque city in the foothills of the Carpathians. From there we hired a guide with a car to drive us to several of the spots that are shown here; Rupia, Bran, Sinaia and Sighisoara. Hiring a guide was the best way to see this area of Romania because we were able to see precisely what we wanted. In terms of exchange, the cost was reasonable.
