Presentation Transcript

  1. Bucharest • The Arch of Triumph Initially built of wood in 1922 to honor the bravery of Romanian soldiers who fought in World War I, Bucharest's very own Arch of Triumph was finished in Deva granite in 1936. Designed by the architect, PetreAntonescu, the Arch stands 85 feet high.

  2. The Parliament Palace The Palace of the Parliament in Bucharest, Romania is a multi-purpose building containing both chambers of the Romanian Parliament. According to the Guinness Book of World Records, the Palace is the world's largest civilian administrative building, most expensive administrative building, and heaviest building.

  9. Transfăgărășan • DN7C is the second-highest paved road in Romania, and considered by some to be the most dramatic. Built as a strategic military route, the 90 km of twists and turns run north to south across the tallest sections of the Southern Carpathians, between the highest peak in the country, Moldoveanu, and the second highest, Negoiu. The road connects the historic regions of Transylvania and Wallachia, and the cities of Sibiu and Pitești.

  10. Bâlea Lake • The Bâlea Lake is a glacier lake situated at 2,034 m of altitude in the Făgăraş Mountains, in central Romania, in Sibiu County. There are two chalets opened all the year round, a meteorological station and a mountain rescue (Salvamont) station. It is accessible by car on the Transfăgărăşan road during the summer, and the rest of the year by cable car from the "BâleaCascadă" chalet. • In 2006, the first ice hotel in Eastern Europe was built next to the lake.

  11. Black Sea • The Black Sea Coast stretches out for 244km/153 miles and is the main tourist area of Romania. It has fine, soft sand and safe, gently sloping beaches. On most days during the summer the sea is calm. The medium latitude and the low altitude are favorable to a dry climate and determine a long season, lasting from May to September, whilst the eastern exposure of the coast provides for spectacular sunrises and maximum luminosity.

  12. The Muddy Vulcanoes • There is a spectacular place in Romania, at Berca, near Buzau, called the Muddy Volcanoes. This is a natural reservation very scarce in vegetation, where the soil is made of dried mud coming out from small volcanoes mouths. The land is soft, but it is possible to walk on it.

  13. Bucovina • Bucovina is a historical region on the northern slopes of the northeastern Carpathian Mountains and the adjoining plains. It is currently split between Romania and Ukraine.
