When to go to Romania

Back to the Romania index

Just like most of Europe, any time between May and September are prime times to be in Romania. However, if you wanna avoid the heat and crowds, aim for May and June or September and early October. The only drawback during these high-season extremes is that you may occasionally run into closures, but this is only in the more obscure areas. Spring and autumn are also the best times for birdwatching in the Danube Delta. Romania’s winters really stink, making getting around a bit perilous, no matter what form of transport you choose. Moreover, you’ll run into a lot of locked doors at museums, sights and even hotels outside of Bucharest and ski centers in Transylvania. Snow lingers as late as mid-May and even later at higher elevations. As such, the hiking season usually doesn’t begin until June-ish. The resorts along the Black Sea coast are overrun between late June and mid-August. Plan ahead or consider visiting during the high-season fringe.
