Top 10 Best Cities in Romania

As you begin your journey through the fog-laden Carpathian Mountains, into the colourful streets of lively metropolises, and around the fortified towns that seem frozen in time, each Romanian city has its own unique character that sets it apart. From the richly decorated Orthodox churches to the Neo-Renaissance architectural wonders, and the bohemian street arts to the well-preserved medieval old towns, Romania's cities are a manifestation of its fascinating history and dynamic present.

Now, let's not forget about the people. Romanians are known for their warmth and hospitality, and their cities reflect this. Each place tells its own story and is filled with locals who are eager to share their culture, traditions, and cuisine with visitors like you. Be ready to be welcomed with open arms and hearty meals. Be prepared for enticing stories that transport you back in time and into the future. Yes, it's more than just about the places, it's about the experiences that these cities promise.

Romania isn't just about its cities. It's also about the splendid natural beauty surrounding these cities. Nestled among mountains, enveloped by lush forests, or flanked by serene rivers, each city is a gateway to nature's grandeur. Be it hiking in the great outdoors, soaking in the tranquillity of its serene villages, or revelling in the hustle and bustle of urban life, the cities of Romania offer the best of both worlds.
The Top Ten
1 Brasov
2 Cluj-Napoca

Easily the best Romanian city. Some tourists prefer Brasov and Sibiu because these cities are more visually appealing, but Cluj is more interesting and has a diverse architecture and a cosmopolitan vibe. It is a very young city due to its large number of students and it hosts numerous festivals. Do not be deceived by the heavy traffic and immerse yourself in the historical yet modern atmosphere of the city. Some landmarks you should definitely check out are Saint Michael's Church, Statue of King Matthew, The National Theater, the Banffy Palace, the statue of Saint George killing the dragon, and, last but not least, the two most charming places: the Cetatuia hill, which offers a mesmerizing panoramic view over the city, and the cobbled streets of Museum Square, an area full of beautiful terraces and cafes.

3 Bucharest

Is one of the worst. Dirty, polluted and way to much traffic. Lets not forget the (poor) stray dogs or kitties, nobody cares (authorities or just people). I saw o horse ones super skinny that I got scarred. And I can not forget the parks too. The parks are for relaxation people not garbage bins (does anyone see the garbage I see around the benches or hidden in bushes? ). Are people in Romania fined for littering? I won't recommend Bucharest. Is pity because the nature is gorgeous. You do have a beautiful and diverse nature but...

4 Timisoara

I've been to this town 12 times in 10 months. I have never seen sexier weman than in timisiora. These girls are smart, sexy, and know what they want. Definitely worth visiting.

5 Craiova

One of most open minded cities in romania with a lot of cool young people

6 Iaşi
7 Oradea

Small cities, but cosmopolite, with rich people.

This is my city. It's small but who cares when there are parks,a lot of swimming pool it has a forest nearby, a lot of restraurants, shops

8 Ploiesti
9 Pitesti

Is mostly a moden city very developed because off automotive industry. Main Dacia Renault plant is located here. People speak fluently english and french.The pubs and resto are nice and safe.1 bootle off beer 1,5 euro medium price. Nice girls too.

10 Constanta

Nice beach - go to Mamaia. It's the summer hub of Romania. Very sexy young people.

The Contenders
11 Sibiu

The costumes there are simply beautiful. Not to mention how cozy the city can get during the summer! It. Is. Awesome.

Clean, Safe, Friendly. Was a cultural capital of Europe a few years ago. A gem in RO, the best city to live in.

Most underrated city in Romania for sure.

12 Targu Secuiesc (Kezdivasarhely)
13 Targu Jiu
14 Zimnicea

It's fine if you want a close view to Bulgaria.
In other cases,it's still pretty good.

15 Piatra Neamţ

Beautiful city, close to many landmarks of national importance.

16 Suceava

Suceava is a nice city and restaurants are nearby and cheap. No obese people especially when there is a McDonald's.

17 Sinaia
18 Sighișoara
19 Deva
20 Târgu-Mureș

By far the cleanest city in Romania, appreciated by it's residents as well as by the neighbouring cities and counties. Fortunately, not a big attraction for the mainstream tourist. Well preserved medieval citadel in the middle of the city, plenty of beautiful baroque buildings, excellent restaurants and pubs. 100% safe. It is, probably, the only city in Romania without any type of gangs. Gypsies and beggars are not allowed in the city by the City council and the local police (this is unofficial but true)
