Fill your polished boots with a Romanian Christmas

Romania has a great deal to offer both culturally and panoramically and at this festive time of year, the Christmas scene would be fit to appear on any Romanian postcard. Tradition prevails at every village and town, with the community at the heart of every event.

Although their Christmas’s may be traditional, do not be fooled into thinking that Romania is behind the times. It is evolving to become a popular choice for holidaymakers looking for something different and having a climate in the southern regions similar to that of the Mediterranean, it is an attractive country to visit. As well as appealing to tourists it is also about to join the EU, thus making it a much more secure and stable environment to invest in. The back drop of sandy beaches and sparkling seas are a haven on which striking and contemporary new builds are being developed.

For a truly delicious Christmas this year try joining the traditional Romanian festivities. In Romania, the celebrations of both Christmas and New Year are merged together with religious and family activities combining the Christian faith with the hopes for a prosperous New Year.

Some of the many traditions include the singing of carols by the children, the cooking of walnut and raisin cakes, the decorating of the tree on Christmas Eve and early on in the celebrations on 6th December, children polish their boots and place them by the window so they can be filled with gifts. Christmas Day itself is spent with friends and family.

Throughout the year there are many other festivals to enjoy such as the annual National Pop Music Festival held at Mamaia beach resort. Mamaia along the Black Sea Coast, hosts an abundance of elegant resorts such as Eforie-Nord, Neptun, Venus and Costinesti so you can remain close to the action!

The Cronos Residence in Olimp Resort, Constanza is an outstanding development of luxury apartments situated only 150 metres from the clean, sandy beach. The town of Olimp has a lot to offer with nightclubs, bars, spas, and restaurants along with the culture, traditions and festivities to feast yourselves on.

Romania as a whole is fast becoming a blend of the traditional and modern so you really can have the best of both worlds at all times of the year.
