Bucharest, Bran castle, Pelles castle, Corvin castle... and Turda Salt Mine and amusement site... Easy to drive around, especially with Sat nav... Roads good. Parking cheap/free everywhere. romania far more developed than expected and food stops on route were all excellent. Strangely you get TEXT notices on your mobile to warn of impending dangers in your locality - brilliant.
