Papa bun!

When talking about traditional Romanian food, there are basically two very known options: mititei and sarmale (there are some other dishes, but those two are simply the most known). Since I talked earlier about mici, now is the time for sarmale: minced meat rolled in pickled cabbage leaves, served with sour cream, mămăliga, some smoked meat and hot peppers. Red wine on the side, of course!

The summer of poppies

Near the end of May, is almost summer here, the time of the summer flowers. And you don’t need to go too far, fields of poppies are also inside the city (if you know where to look for them, of curse):

Râșnov citadel

The Râșnov citadel in pretty much in ruins, but still some parts of it are somewhat functional, like this little alley leading to a couple of souvenir shops. Too bad for the modern ice-cream sign, otherwise one may have a medieval feeling.
