Visit Romania, one of Europe's greatest treasures. With its charming towns and fairytale landscapes, it's hard to deny the allure of this historical location and, as such, it's no surprise that so many of us are drawn to the idea of volunteering in Romania. Here you can find world-class national parks, which are home to such incredible species as wolves, brown bears, lynxes, golden eagles and elks. All of this, amongst a backdrop of breathtaking scenery, makes Romania a magical place to volunteer.
In addition to taking part in conservation work in Romania, why not take some time to explore other cultural and historical gems that this country has to offer? Explore the wonders of Transylvania, the birthplace of horror icon Dracula, and soak up the ancient mysticism of the country's numerous gothic castles and UNESCO sites. These include the Painted Monasteries of Bucovina and the Monastery of Horezu – both unforgettable sites well worth a visit.
