Rough Guides (Author), Tim Burford (Author) & 1 more. While acceptable as a somehow quick guide to Romania, and while covering in general most destinations in this country, it could be easily observed by a Romanian-born reader that the author is not a Romanian and does not have any real knowledge about Romania. I never understood why travel guides are not written exclusively by people that were born and lived in the country they want to advertise.

I live in Cambridge (UK) and have been writing guidebooks since 1991 - first on hiking in Eastern Europe and then Latin America, and then more general guides (for Bradt Travel Guides and Rough Guides) to the same parts of the world, as well as Alaska!

This guide is no exception. Bucharest has more in common with Minsk than Prague, so don't expect an undiscovered carbon-copy of that famous Bohemian city. Third, forget about Dracula and all that related misery. 18 people found this helpful.

Romania is so rapidly becoming a hip tourist destination that any guide over two years old is sure to be out of date. This guide is no exception. Use it for a crash course in Romania history, culture and geography, but plan to rely on more local sources for the best places to sleep and eat.

This book irritates the hell out of Romanians because it states some painful truths. First, Romania is a poor country. It's a place where "the dollar goes a long way," to quote the overused phrase. And while it's becoming less poor, Romania still lags behind other former Warsaw Pact countries in developing a healthy economy. Don't expect modern conveniences and a cheery service ethic... yet.

Second, quite a few places in Romania that you might think would attract your attention (such as Bucharest and the Black Sea coast) are really not worth your time. Bucharest has more in common with Minsk than Prague, so don't expect an undiscovered carbon-copy of that famous Bohemian city.

Third, forget about Dracula and all that related misery. Learn something about the local history before you visit stunning Transylvania. The mythological hype may leave you disappointed with the reality, so it's best for you to know something about the reality first. This guide will help you do that.

Finally, the lovely Transylvanian towns Romanians love to brag about were founded and built by Germans. Ouch! Of course, it's the Romanians who have maintained, and are now restoring, these beautiful far-flung outposts of the Holy Roman Empire, but the authors of any good travel guide (such as this one) will refer to places like Cluj, Brasov and Sibiu as "Saxon" towns.

One can infer from the text some important conclusions about your potential destinations.

Most over-rated destination: Bucharest - likely to be just your point of entry and exit.

Second most over-rated destination: Bran (Dracula's) Castle - without all the attending mythology, what do you really have? Interesting architecture, which Romania is blessed with.

Most under-rated destination: Iasi - Capital of Moldavia

Second most under-rated destination: Sibiu - medieval capital of the Saxon colonies

A new edition is forthcoming from Rough Guides that will help address stale information.

We just returned from two weeks in Romania. We took both the Rough Guide and the Lonely Planet guide. It seemed like the Rough Guide always had the more complete information, at least in the areas we visited (Maramures, Sic, Sighashora, Brasov). We could have left Lonely Planet home. BTW, we loved Romania. Best part was Maramures, best spot Breb.

The level of detail in this Rough Guide is even better than their many other fine books. Great sightseeing detail and the usual well-considered accommodation suggestions. Also included is a small language section with travel-useful words and phrases (there are not many such language items in print now elsewhere). A good map is needed for best use of the book (Amazon.com has several).

Book looks brand new; good price and saved me over 50%. Arrived yesterday, so at the far end of the shipping window, but I'm not in a hurry.

Finally a brand spanking new update to this excellent guide. The last edition was October 2004.

I have been to Romania 10 times and I still am discovering new places in this fascinating country.

Highly recommended !!!

My first time using a Rough Guide Travel book, and I'm pleased with the information in it. Very detailed about so many specific areas of Romania. My only wish is that they give a few more reviews of hotels and places to stay. Other than that looking forward to my holiday in Romania using this book!

This book provided a great deal of information on Romania and helped tremendously in travel planning. I could get a better idea of which sights were closer together and how to plan travel days.
A nice section on Bucharest.
