If you are ready for a beach vacation or mountaineering, summer is the best time to visit Romania. September and October show beautiful weather, a variety of festivals, wine season, and fewer crowds (well, and lower prices). Skiing and snowboarding are perfect during snowy winter, and don't you dare to miss a chance to take part in traditional Christmas celebrations or try Romanian specialities such as Sarmale or Ciorba de Perisoare. In spring, magnolia blossoms and peonies blooming are complemented by beautiful Easter celebrations. Spring in Romania also promises a pure paradise for passionate birdwatchers in the Danube delta.
