Sibiu (Hermannstadt in German) was the largest and wealthiest of the seven walled citadels built in the 12th century by German settlers known as Transylvanian Saxons. The riches amassed by its guilds paid for the construction of both impressive buildings and the fortifications required to protect them.
Sibiu’s Old Town retains the grandeur of its earlier days when rich and powerful guilds dominated regional trade. Like Sighisoara and Brasov, it has a distinctly Germanic feeling.

No matter where you might enter this citadel built by God and offered with plenty of love to people, so that they could rejoice, you will be welcomed by the solemnity of majestic mountains providing a dazzling view and beautiful warm people. The high crests of the Bucegi and Piatra Craiului Massifs surround and guard this region ever since the beginning of time, allowing flowing valleys to soften the walls of its cauldron up to Turcului Gorges, where for hundreds of years Bran castle has been watching quietly over the life of men and nature. 

Maramures is located in the geographical heartland of Europe. Maramures is a land of wooden churches, mythological richness, impressive landscapes and very ancient customs. It has carefully preserved the culture, traditions, and lifestyle of a medieval peasant past.
Maramures abounds with both man-made and natural cultural attractions. From the wooden churches and museums to the village markets and daily life of the shepherd, one can not but feel immersed in and part of a time that has essentially stood still.

With Romania's adhesion to the Ramsar Convention in 1991, Danube Delta Biosphere Reserve (DDBRA) was recognized as a wetland of international importance especially as waterfowl habitat. Taking into account the significance of the universal heritage of the Danube Delta, that is the biosphere reserve, it is found since 1990 in the list of World Cultural and Natural Heritage (more than half the area).

The Romanian sculptor Constantin Brancusi, (1876-1957) was a central figure of the modern movement and a pioneer of abstraction. His sculpture is noted for its visual elegance and sensitive use of materials, combining the directness of peasant carving with the sophistication of the Parisian avant-garde.
After attending the Bucharest School of Fine Arts and learning of the sculpture of August Rodin, Brancusi traveled to Paris in 1904. Brancusi created his first major work, The Kiss, in 1908. From this time his sculpture became increasingly abstract, moving from the disembodied head of Sleeping Muse to the virtually featureless Beginning of the World and from the formal figure of the legendary bird Maiastra to numerous versions of the ethereal Bird in Space.
