    • This tour is a journey through major wineyards in Romania. Heres somenthingabout these :Wine growing has been known for centuries long in Romania. The country hasbeen favoured by its geographical position in South-Eastern Europe, by itsproximity to the Black Sea, as well as by the specificity of the local soil andclimate. Alongside France, Italy, Spain, Germany, countries in this area likeRomania could also be called "a vine homeland" in Europe. Archaeological findsand historical documents place the beginnings of wine culture on the presentterritory of Romania some 4000 years ago. High quality wines produced in thisregion were object of trade ever since ancient times. In the 19th century, to therange of local vine varieties, i.e. Zghihara de Husi, Cramposia de Dragasani,Galbena de Odobesti, Feteasca alba, Feteasca neagra, Babeasca, Tamâioasaromâneasca, there have been added acclimatized varieties (mainly imported fromFrance, but also from Germany and Italy), like Pinot gris, Pinot noir, ItalianRiesling, Merlot, Sauvignon blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay, MuscatOttonel etcValachiaThe DRAGASANI vineyard has an old history which can be traced back to theRomania’s ancestors, the Geto-Dacians, who lived on territory of present Romaniasome three thousands years ago. Tonic, slightly frothy, and having a long-lastingflavour, the wines of Dragasani are renowned well across Romania’s frontiers. Atthe wine contests held in Bordeaux (1898) and at the World Exhibition in Paris(1900), the Dragasani wines acquired world recognition: they have been awarded aHonorary Diploma and a Golden Medal respectively.The DEALU MARE vineyard, with its old tradition, is the most compact vine areain Romania. Stretched over the counties of Buzau and Prahova along 70 km, theDealu Mare vineyard is the cradle of the red wines, whose special taste and flavourare given by the local soil and climate. Its vines yield high quality red wines likeFeteasca Neagra, Burgund Mare, Merlot, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon, as wellas high quality white wines, i.e. Feteasca Alba, Feteasca Neagra, Feteasca Regala,Pinot Gris and Muscat Ottonel.Moldova :The COTNARI vineyard is relating to the great Romanian prince Stephen theGreat (15th century). The leading wine of the vineyard is Grasa de Cotnari. It wasdescribed as having the bitterish taste of a nutshell and a strong flavour; it is anexcellent wine, whose ageing enhances its noble qualities and draws it nearperfection. In 1900, at the World Exhibition in Paris, Grasa de Cotnari wasawarded a golden medal, and has since acquired the name of "RomaniasBloom". The ODOBESTI vineyard is one of the largest and oldest in Romania. Itis renowned for its table wines, resulted from Romanian traditional varieties, likeGalbena de Odobesti, Plavaie and Feteasca regala.Transylvania :The ALBA IULIA vineyard, also named the County of Wine, has been known eversince the 1stcentury B.C. The old wine cellars at Alba Iulia have catacombsdesigned for grape processing and wine depositing; they are among the largestand best known in Transylvania, and a tourist highlight too. Among the sorts ofwine produced by the Alba Iulia vineyard can be mentioned Feteasca Alba,Furmint, Traminer, Grasa, Riesling, Sauvignon, Pinot Gris and Muscat Ottonel.These golden yellow wines have a pleasant taste are light and slightly soft; this iswhy they enjoy a wide and well-deserved appreciation.Dobrogea :The MURFATLAR vineyard was first mentioned in the writings of the Latin poet Ovid, butactually was acknowledged since 1907.The SARICA NICULITEL vineyard lies in the northern part of the Tulcea County andwould be a last stop of our Route of wines in Romania.

    • BUCHARESTBucharest is Romanias capital and largest city, as well as themost important industrial and commercial center of the country.With 2 million inhabitants in the city proper and more than 2.4million in the urban area. Bucharest is the second largest city inSouth Eastern Europe behind Athens.Bucharest is the primary entry point into Romania. It typicallyelicits a wide spectrum of opinions on the part of tourists. Known inthe past as "The Little Paris" Bucharest has changed a lot lately andtoday it has become a very interesting mix of old and new that haslittle to do with its initial reputation. Finding a 300 years old churchnear a steel-and-glass building that sit both next to a communiststyle building is common place in Bucharest. Perhaps "The BigMix" would be a more appropriate name for the current Bucharest.Bucharest offers some excellent attractions, and has, in recent years,cultivated a sophisticated, trendy, and modern sensibility that manyhave come to expect from a European capital.http://wikitravel.org/en/BucharestTOURS IN ROMANIABack to CONTENTSAGNESE (DMC)www.agnese.ro / contact@agnese.ro
    • BRASOVFringed by the peaks of the Southern Carpathian Mountains andresplendent with gothic, baroque and renaissance architecture, aswell as a wealth of historical attractions, Brasov is one of the mostvisited places in Romania.Founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211 on an ancient Daciansite and settled by the Saxons as one of the seven walled citadels,Brasov exudes a distinct medieval ambiance and has been used asbackdrop in many recent period films.The location of the city at the intersection of trade routes linkingthe Ottoman Empire and western Europe, together with certain taxexemptions, allowed Saxon merchants to obtain considerable wealthand exert a strong political influence in the region. This wasreflected in the citys German name, Kronstadt, as well as in itsLatin name, Corona, meaning Crown City (hence, the coat of armsof the city which is a crown with oak roots). Fortifications wereerected around the city and continually expanded, with severaltowers maintained by different craft guilds, according to medievalcustom.Stroll around the old Town Hall Square (Piata Sfatului) where youcan admire colorfully painted and ornately trimmed baroquestructures. Take a peek inside the Black Church (Biserica Neagra),the largest gothic church in Romania.Nearby are towering mountains, rolling fields, thick forests andvillages with fortified churches.http://www.romaniatourism.comTOURS IN ROMANIABack to CONTENTSAGNESE (DMC)www.agnese.ro / contact@agnese.ro
    • SIBIUSibiu (Hermannstadt in German) was the largest and wealthiest ofthe seven walled citadels* built in the 12th century by Germansettlers known as Transylvanian Saxons. The riches amassed by itsguilds paid for the construction of both impressive buildings and thefortifications required to protect them.Sibiu’s Old Town retains the grandeur of its earlier days when richand powerful guilds dominated regional trade. Like Sighisoara andBrasov, it has a distinctly Germanic feeling. Sections of the medievalwall still guard the historic area, where narrow streets pass steep-roofed 17th century buildings with gable overhangs before openinginto vast, church-dominated squares such as Great Square and LittleSquare.* The seven walled citadels populated by the Saxons ofTransylvania were known in German as the Siebenburgen.The other Siebenburgen citadels are located in the towns of:Bistrita (Bistritz), Brasov (Kronstadt), Cluj (Klausenburg), Medias(Mediasch), Sebes (Mühlbach) , Sighisoara (Schässburg)http://www.romaniatourism.comTOURS IN ROMANIABack to CONTENTSAGNESE (DMC)www.agnese.ro / contact@agnese.ro
    • BRANSurrounded by an aura of mystery and legend and perched highatop a 200-foot-high rock, Bran Castle owes its fame to its imposingtowers and turrets as well as to the myth created around BramStocker’s Dracula.Although Stoker never visited Transylvania, the Irish author reliedon research and his vivid imagination to create the dark andintimidating stomping ground of Count Dracula, leading topersistent myths that it was once the home of Vlad Tepes, ruler ofWalachia.
