There are nearly not enough words to describe the breath-taking, awe-inspiring and truly beautiful scenery of Romania. The picture-perfect snow capped mountains lead down to acres of alpine forests, which in turn looks out over the valleys and plains littered with cute villages and majestic castles. It's no exaggeration to say it is some of the cutest scenery in Europe, and makes for the ultimate winter wonderland.
