Last week, I wrote a post about some affordable countries in Europe that you may not have considered traveling to. One of those was Romania — one of my favorite countries I’ve been to in Europe so far. Writing that post got me to thinking about my time in Eastern Europe last summer; it was difficult for me not to add other countries like Hungary and Bulgaria to that post, because I loved them, too.

Eastern Europe has been a fascinating part of the world to me for quite some time, and getting the chance to explore a bit of it for a few weeks last summer only solidified for me how underrated and awesome it is.

Today, therefore, I wanted to share with you some highlights of my time in Eastern Europe — in postcard form.

Hungary

In Hungary, I fell in love with the Budapest, was charmed by the small town of Eger, and had a fleeting glimpse of colorful Debrecen.

Romania

Romania took me by surprise and made me fall in love with it almost immediately. From the rolling farmland and wooden churches in Maramures, to colorful towns like Sighisoara and Brasov, to tiny villages like Viscri, I was captivated by it all.

Bulgaria

Of these countries, Bulgaria was perhaps the most surprising to me. From the mountains to the Roman ruins to the amazingly friendly locals, Bulgaria had much more to offer than I originally anticipated.

Alrighty, who’s ready to book a trip to Eastern Europe now? I’m ready to go back.
