Other Need-to-Know Information about Romania
Romania may be stereotyped as slightly archaic compared to some of western Europe, but it is actually the seventh most populous member of the EU, with nearly 20 million citizens! The total area it comprises is 238,397 square kilometers, or a little less than half the size of France. The countryside is gorgeous, and quite expansive. In fact, it is one of the largest areas of undisturbed forest in all of Europe! You would be foolish to exclude Romania from Balkan motorcycle tours. Once you’ve experienced its charm and beauty, you might even rank it amongst the best global motorcycle tours!
The wonderful geography of Romania is obviously dominated by countryside, and the Carpathian Mountains and Danube River Delta are two features that are not to be missed. What could be better than carving through the twists and turns of 2,000m peaks and cruising amongst the fertile fields of the river delta? During your Romania motorcycle tours, you might even glimpse one of the brown bears, wolves, or hundreds of other unique species that inhabit the country.
While there are some regional differences in climate, much of the country is quite similar. There are four distinct seasons, with average summer temperatures in Bucharest around 28ºC and the southern parts of the country around 35ºC, and average winter temps dipping below 2ºC. Rainfall can average over 750mm in the high mountains, but is only around 600mm, on average, in Bucharest. Late spring through early fall would be the ideal times for any sort of Romania motorcycle tours.
Travel to, and entry into, Romania is quite easy for most citizens. Schengen country citizens, as well as U.S. and U.K. citizens can enter Romania without a visa and stay for up to 90 days. There are a total of 17 civilian airports throughout Romania, and 12 of those have regularly scheduled international flights.
