Here are 10 reasons to visit Romania, the country of Dracula:
1. Bigar Waterfall
Bigar Waterfall, flowing from moss covered rocks and stones, infiltrates through mosses and forms a wonderful natural wonder. Furthermore, it is fed by the rich underground water resources of the Anina Mountains.

It is located on Romania’s old railway with love tunnel. The tunnel has come to life with a natural formation that surrounds green nature.
3. The Moss Swamp
Romania has not yet been able to advertise this wonderful forest, but thanks to these photographs, a curious mass has also begun to develop. We can also say that this region, which is discovered by real nature lovers, can not be very popular because the image is beautiful, although it is actually a swamp.
4. Bucegi Mountains
The Bucegi Mountains are located in the center of Romania, south of the city of Brasov. It is found in the South Carpathians of the Carpathian Mountains. The Prahova Valley in the east is important for tourism.

The Maramures region, which covers the northern and northern western part of Romania, is actually composed of many villages and towns. Moreover, the villagers of Maramures are very famous with their wooden churches and wooden gates.
