Some facts about Romania 🇷🇴 1. The capital, Bucharest- this city is home of the government building ‘Palatul Parlamentului’ which has 1,100 rooms and is one of the worlds largest buildings.
2. 🏰The Bran Castle- this is the well known ‘Dracula’s castle’, however not many tourists know that Queen Mary of Romania loved the castle so much that in her will, she asked for her heart to be removed and buried next to the castle.
3. 💧Bigăr Waterfall- this Waterfall was titled the #1 waterfall in the world in 2013 by ‘The World Geography’ magazine. There is a sad legend surrounding this waterfall- it is said that a couple who were unable to have children went to a gypsy woman who told them to drink from the spring, but to beware! If they had a girl she must not fall in love or it will be the death of her. The gypsy’s instruction worked and the couple had..you guessed it..a baby girl. As the girl got older, she fell in love with a boy, Bigăr (hence the name). To save their daughter, the parents locked her in a cave near the spring. The girl cried, and her cries were heard by the gypsy, who told the girl that she could reunite her with her love. The witch then turned the girls hair into a waterfall, on which her tears fell. The wind brought her lover to her, however her tears drowned him, uniting them forever 💔
4. Sighisoara fortress- this had been deemed a UNESCO world heritage site and its history dates back to 1100.
5. Sibiu- in 2004, Sibiu received the title of ‘the European Capital of Culture’ and today shares this title with Luxembourg. It was the first non- European Union city to have this title (Romania joined the European Union in 2007). 6&7- 🏰 Peles Castle- This is one of the most beautiful castles in Europe and has 168 rooms. Many of these rooms have a theme from various world cultures, such as Turkish, French, Imperial and Florentine.
