Why You'll Love This Trip

Every country has its own way of telling the story of Christmas through its traditions, beliefs, and customs. Romanian traditions make Christmas a truly magical, festive occasion. Don’t just take our word for it – join us and see for yourself!

Christmas celebrations begin on Christmas Eve in Romania, when families hang baubles, candies, and coloured lights on the Christmas Tree. Traditionally, they gather around the tree to decorate it while singing carols, to really get into the Christmas spirit!

Be my guest!
Crăciun Fericit is how Romanians say ‘Merry Christmas!’
There are many traditions and customs that are still thriving, particularly in rural areas. These traditions can be discovered in the beautiful, breathtaking region of Maramureș, which is our top suggestion for your Christmas getaway.

Music plays an important role in Christmas festivities all over Romania. In fact, Christmas carols were first sung in Europe thousands of years ago, as part of the winter solstice celebration. On Christmas Eve, children go out carolling to different houses and perform their songs to the adults in the communities. The children receive sweets, fruits, traditional cakes called ‘cozonaci’ (similar to Stollen), and sometimes even money as a reward for singing well. You may be surprised to learn that in Romania, carolling isn’t just for children – many adults join in too! In the past, only young unmarried men could participate, but these days both men and women go carolling to get into festive spirit.
