The Advantages of Traveling Solo in Romania

Even if solo travel is not for everyone, it offers you the opportunity to savor the culture of a country. No more planning ahead and coming to a consensus with the whole group. You can take the path less traveled.

You can also spend as much time as you need at any point and enjoy landmarks and activities to their fullest. Now let’s focus on the main advantages of traveling solo in Romania.

City Breaks in Romania

Some of the top destinations that you can enjoy on your own include the medieval towns and the thriving cities of Romania. The top suggestions include:

  • Brasov
  • Sighisoara
  • Sibiu
  • Cluj-Napoca
  • Bucharest
  • Constanta
  • Oradea

The numerous landmarks and just walking along the streets of the city will make you feel you have so much to take in, that you’ll forget you are alone.

In Bucharest, we recommend the 4 hours unhealthy food tour, to learn more about history while tasting local foods.

One of the most significant advantages is that all these locations have hostel accommodations. These are the best options for traveling solo in Romania, as they are cheaper than any other option and they have a socializing aspect.

You’ll get to have exciting discussions with travelers from all around the world.

Taking in the natural elements

Traveling solo in Romanian’s wildlife is a privilege. Whether you are hiking up the mountain, taking a boat through the Danube Delta, or just enjoying the view in the Maramureș region, you’ll be grateful you can do it at your own pace and let your eyes wander as much as you would like.

Each region is a perfect destination for photographers. Spending a few hours in the forests you’ll be able to capture photos of beautiful animals in their natural environment.

Exploring the traditions and experiencing them 

In many rural areas of Romania, numerous B&Bs offer more than just a bed and hot meals. They will teach you:

  • the old way of taking care of animals,
  • how to grow vegetables and
  • local traditions.

You can experience this with a group of friends or with family, but the impact will be much more profound when experiencing it on your own. Traveling solo in Romania makes it much easier to understand the culture and heritage.


These types of activities are also more intense around Christian Orthodox holidays like Easter and Christmas.
