Retirement in Romania

 

No Dracula…but Romania more than makes up for that…it has gorgeous cities like Bucharest and Sinaia--the former being the exquisite, gothic Romanian capital, the latter being the “Carpathian Pearl” and the summer residence of the Romanian Royal family. In Sinaia, the Neo-Renaissance Peles Castle is one of the best-preserved in Europe… You can hike or ski in the Transylvanian Alps (the Carpathian Mountains).

Transylvania…Not Just a Paradise for Vampires

Transylvania Bites Back

Romania acceded to the European Union back in 2007… just in time for the global financial crisis to bite it in the neck. GDP growth, which at a robust 6% to 7% during the previous few years had been among the highest on the continent, promptly collapsed. The economy contracted by a whopping 6.5% in 2009 and remained in the red the following year. It’s been in a state of tentative recovery ever since.
