Every time before my trip I make a list of places that i like to see ,food that i want to try, things that i want to do, its very helpful especially when you travel with a baby. I also want to say that most of the time its impossible to visit everything you planned, if you have a baby travelling with you. So make your list as big as it can get.
Travelling with a baby is not as hard as we all think. Just prepare yourself in advance for any possible situation. First thing I like to recommend to travelling moms is a stroller (must have) Yoyo if you ready to spend $500-600 ,personally me I think its too much so what i got is kiddopotamus, its a copy of Yoyo and four times cheaper.
I think the best and most convenient thing to do is renting a car from avis ,we were lucky enough to have a family there so we lent a car for our stay.
We visited beautiful mountain side, the Carpathian mountains, we stayed in the hotel which was hidden in the forest, Gura Diham ( Busteni city ) the rooms where not so fancy,but it was super cheap and the views where just worth to see ,plus the restaurant with traditional Romanian food was just on point.https://www.tripadvisor.com/Hotel_Review-g656863-d3258695-Reviews-Cabana_Gura_Diham-Busteni_Prahova_County_Southern_Romania.html We stayed over night and the next morning headed to see a famous Dracula’s Castle ,it wasn’t as big as I thought and honestly it wasn’t very interesting inside ,so if you are with a baby and not interested in seeing furniture and rooms where Dracula used to live you can definitely skip it. You can go and see it from outside plus visit a market with a lot of Romanian goodies in it situated just right next to the Castle.
You also can enjoy skiing ,depends on what month you are there. We were not able to do it,because of my son , but definitely next time when he gets bigger.
I think we saw enough on the mountain side time to go and see the capital. It’s a long ride, so buckle up and just enjoy the nature while in a car.
You can base yourself in the Old Town which is in the middle of the city ,
The National Bank of Romania
Beautiful architecture, it’s built in neoclassical French style .
St. Nicholas Russian church
I love Russian churches. They are so colorful,considering how grey and dull Soviet buildings are.
Something you should definitely see plus its located in the Old Town.
This quiet and peaceful monastery lies right in the middle of the Old Town . It’s built in Romanian style with a beautiful garden
And here is my favorite -food! Famous place to eat and just to feel Romanian ambiance of 18 century is Caru cu Bere, ask any local on the street and they will tell you where it is. Food is just so delicious that you will be coming back again and again. I did , four times.
You also would be fascinated by the Palace of Parliament house,its second largest in the world after Pentagon in Washington DC. You can also have a tour around the building . I didn’t really care to see it inside, and they charge you too much to go in.
We also had a chance to see Triumphal Arch which is smaller than one in France ,so it’s not something that you really have to see being in Romania.
To summarize all our stay , if you want to see Transylvania(the Carpathian mountains) and Bucharest, while traveling with a baby you will need some extra time for afternoon naps and just resting , make it from 5 to 6 days trip.
