Foreign or Romanian, if you want to explore the destinations, sights and culture of Romania, the Travel Tweaks team strongly recommends you to get Leif Pettersen’s Romania Traveler’s Guide app for iPhone / iPad and Android. For those of you who don’t know who Leif is, it’s important to add that he used to write Lonely Planet guides and Romania is one of the countries he covered. To say he knows what traveling in Romania entails and which are the most beautiful and interesting places to visit is a bit of an understatement.
Back to the app, I’d like to share Leif’s very own explanation for it, as it’s the best reason ever to buy and download it:
“Unlike many Romania travel apps, this app was not compiled at a desk, written by a nameless researcher with information copied from Wikipedia and travel websites. This app was researched on the ground by me, Leif Pettersen, Romania guidebook author and former Romania resident.”
The app offers you everything you need when traveling to some of the most popular destinations in Romania - Bucharest, Brasov, Sighisoara, Sibiu, Cluj-Napoca and Suceava, from accommodation and restaurant ideas to top attractions and fun activities. It is a highly portable and very thorough guide to help you experience the people, the culture and the places without needing tons of research beforehand. It has GPS locations, pictures and all the information you could ever need.
The Romania Traveler’s Guide smartphone and tablet app is available for both iOS and Android and costs only 3.99 US dollars. Download it, let us know what you thought, and while at it, we strongly recommend checking out Killing Batteries, the author’s blog. We’ve been reading it for years and just love it.
