  1. :

    The Transylvania Live Halloween costume party from Sighisoara was fantastic.
    If you enjoy Halloween, history interwoven with Dracula folklore and wonderful people, then this is for you.
    The entertainment and staff were wonderful.
    My wife and brother kept repeating, “Best Halloween — ever!”
    The only drawback to this tour: how does one top “best Halloween — ever?”

    The Halloween party was the highlight of the tour for us. Not only was it fun dressing up and relaxing away from the bus, but there was plenty of entertainment & we were well fed.
    All of the entertainment was well suited to the occasion, the ritual killing was actually one of the weirdest things we’ve ever taken part in (and we can be quite weird), we loved it!
    The tour staff at the party looked after us very well, including us & cheering us on while dancing, nobody was left out.
    They took pictures with & for us and the competitions were great fun.
    Getting print outs on the night from the selfie booth was a great way of making sure we all had at least one decent photo of ourselves.
    We won’t ruin the surprise for future visitors, but there were a number of little touches that someone out there put a lot of work into and we really appreciated the time & effort afforded there, it really added to the fun atmosphere in an already amazing setting.
    The only thing that could put us off is that no party will ever be able to live up to the standard we experienced here.
    We all agreed the private Halloween party was the best night out we’ve ever had!
    Our daughter was the only child on there as it’s not really recommended as a “kids” party, but she is very mature 12 year old so coped with everything just fine & got on really well with everyone she chatted to.
    Nobody talked down to her & she felt like she was being treated as another adult, which added to the experience for her.
    If you’re thinking of going to Romania then we highly recommend you book a tour with Transylvania Live, or a party; they made it so easy to enjoy.
    Big “THANK YOU!” to everyone who made this holiday so special!

In Romania electric power in use is of 220 voltages, AC, usually 2 pronged.

Romania enjoys warm summers and cold winters. In summer, cool cottons are best and in the winter a warm jacket or alike is recommended. Autumn is dry and cool, with fields and trees producing beautifully colored foliage. The weather in October-November is very unpredictable, with daytime temperatures between 6°-17° Celsius (42.80 - 62.60 Fahrenheit), and night time temperatures between 3° - 10°Celsius (37.40 - 50 Fahrenheit); but it is very much possible that you will see some snowfall especially in the mountain areas.

Romanian time is EET (Eastern European Time, two hours ahead of GMT, seven hours ahead of New York and ten hours ahead of Los Angeles. Check right now what time is in Bucharest, the capital city of Romania: https://time.is/Bucharest

The dress code in Romania is the same as all over Europe (think France, Germany, UK or Italy). Wearing jeans, t-shirts/sweatshirts and athletic shoes is standard casual in Romanian. Plenty of designers’ shops are to be found in major cities: Bucharest, Cluj, Brasov, Sibiu, where people are a bit too pretentious when it comes to their outfits. Dorobanti Boulevard in Bucharest can easily be compared to Chaps Elysees in Paris when it comes to “fashionists” (costs are similar too). The malls are well supplied with designers’ clothes and with respect to the prices, a great deal of our clients found the Romanian costs to be more acceptable then the ones in US.
With regards to the restaurants’ dress code, something casual is sufficient. You can wear whatever you would wear at home.
To satisfy dress codes for churches and monasteries, men and women are requested to cover their arms and legs (no shorts above the knees or sleeveless garments).
