Located in the middle of the Transylvania region in Romania, Sibiu is a medieval city that has so much to offer on a cultural level.

Potsdam is like a breath of fresh air in the northern part of Germany. Its closeness to Berlin makes it a perfect destination for a day trip.

Saint Anne Lake (Romanian: Lacul Sfânta Ana): the only lake in Romania that formed in the crater of an extinct volcano. As a Romanian girl, I found out about Saint Anne Lake at an early age, in my Geography classes, but because as a child I didn’t get to travel too much, I never got to see it, but that changed last year, when I planned to spend Easter in Balvanyos, a resort only 25 km away from the lake. If you’re thinking about visiting it too, here’s what you need to know about it:
