Peonies in the Comana Forest Featured in
One of the best ways to enjoy May in Romania is to go for a nice spring walk in the Comana Forest renowned for its numerous bright red peonies, especially if you stay in Bucharest as the forest lies only 38 km from the capital city. Romanians really appreciate flowers, and always celebrate their bloom. So every year during the blooming season one day in May is devoted to a peony celebration. This splendid flower is considered a natural monument and is protected by law.
