Try something diffrent, try romania, try Craiova. Craiova is one of the largest cities in Romania and is situated in the south-west of the country, close to Bucharest (220 km). In Craiova, the landforms are not spectacular because is situated in a plain, but at approximatively equal distance from the Danube river (to the South) and Carpathians mountains (to the North). It is an historic, commercial and cultural center thats worth visiting. I grew up here and would love to show you my hometown.
