In this episode, we chat about the 2016 Rick Steves’ Europe episode “Romania.” We’ll talk about Romania beyond Dracula and castles, the difference between hornica and tuica, and how much polenta is too much polenta. Plus, we’re still awestruck at how well Rick rides around in a horse-drawn cart.

Stephanie’s Romania Travel Tips
Don’t Skip Bucharest
A lot of tourists come to Romania to enjoy the country and explore the nation’s gorgeous collection of beautiful castles. However, there’s a lot of awesome things to do in Bucharest, too! Give yourself at least two days to explore this vibrant capital city.
Sibiu is a Must-See for Foodies
Sibiu is a beautiful medieval city, but it’s also making a name for itself as a culinary capital of Europe. Don’t skip this charming town if you want to mix sightseeing with a gourmet experience.
Bucovina is a Hidden Gem
My favorite region of the country by far is charming Bucovina. Too often overlooked, it’s completely off the beaten path. Rent a car and make the drive up to this gorgeous corner of Romania.
