    This rural experience was a very enjoyable day. I have been to Romania four times now and with each visit I get to see and experience so much more of this beautiful country. The landscape, citadel, monastery, and Nicolae Popa museum was a great insight into the rich history and culture within Romania. My guide Lucian was fantastic even organising an impromptu visit to a family which was the highlight of the day. They welcomed you traditionally, quenched your thirst and appetite with home made food and beverages and then put me to work husking some corn. Absolutely an awesome experience that will stay with me forever.
