When to go 

There are benefits to each season in Romania. 

Summer has nice warm weather making it great for outdoor activities in the mountains and exploring cities and countryside. Great for hitting the beach. It also has the highest prices and most crowds. 

Spring and fall offer the warm weather benefits without as many crowds making it ideal for visiting but fall also brings rainy season. 

Ski slopes aside, winter has the fewest tourists making it the cheapest. But closures for some activities due to weather or not enough people to participate. Also hard to find people to split costs on various activities with. The Christmas markets are outstanding .
