The whole trip was amazing! Romania in particular was my favorite. Make sure you give yourself a few extra days at the end in Istanbul because there's A LOT to see and do.

This trip offers a great combination of the region's major cities, smaller historical towns and cities plus out of the way rural areas demonstrating just how much this relatively little-known area has to offer.
