If you are looking for an off-the-beaten-track experience of Romania, the region of Northwest Romania may be for you. From national parks to lakes to rolling hills, the untouched scenery that makes up much of this region is bound to impress. Unfortunately, the privilege of experiencing this comes with a price: because there is less tourism here, you may need to know a bit of Romanian to communicate in this region. Most tourists in Northwest Romania flock to its main city, Cluj-Napoca, and use the cool and energetic town as a starting point to discover the rest of the region.
