Traveling through Romania can be an exciting adventure, with so many untouched landscapes, picturesque views, a rich history and extraordinary places to visit. Here are the most mysterious tourist attractions you can find in Romania, in my opinion.
Walk on a wooden bridge in a fairytale swamp forest in Poiana Stampei, Romania. The peat bog is a swamp, an area where the groundwater reaches the surface and a specific flora is formed, consisting mainly of moss.
The Papyrus Tomb funerary complex in Mangalia, Romania dates to the Hellenistic era (4th century BC). The remains of a Papyrus written in Greek were discovered over the skeleton’s right hand from the tomb.
The Church carved in stone (Athos of Romania) from Alunis village, Buzau county, is more than 700 years old, and is one of the mystical caves carved in stone. The cave churches and settlements of Buzau are surrounded by legends and myths and have become famous for paranormal and esoteric fans.
Legend has it that in the 1800s, a cart full of mineral water barrels crashed into Meledic Lake. Rumors began to appear soon that a treasure was actually hidden in the barrels. So the locals and the authorities decided to take the water out of the lake to find the barrels. In vain they tried to dry the lake, but they failed. Since then they have called it the Bottomless Lake.
Legend says that the Turtudui peak is actually a megalithic pyramid made by giant people that lived here a long time ago. It is said that this 300-meter-tall pyramid in Romania is dating back 24 000 years and hides ancient treasures.
