Weekend getaway: Alba Iulia


 It's the middle of the week, but let's take 10 minutes to remember the weekend, shall we? I hope yours was relaxing and pleasant, I know mine was, even though I suffered a bit from the cold - I even got the flu, no surprise there! 

We decided to take advantage of the last free few days we had before starting our jobs again, so on Friday, we booked a room at a hotel in Alba Iulia for the weekend, and on Saturday morning we embarked on this little exploration tour. We had the opportunity to stay just a few meters away from the citadel - which is the main attraction in Alba Iulia (see photos bellow with our view) so it was nice to stay in cozy and not walk like 3 km just to get there. I was really impressed by the citadel, I know it is very appreciated by tourists, but I have to say that I never actually entered a place like that and expected to see like a little small town within. There were cathedrals, museums, a Univeristy, caffes and even a skating rink. It was a very nice place to walk around, on the grounds and the terraces, which are quite big, I mean it really takes a while to make a full tour around the place. And the view is really something.
 I bet that it is one hundred times more beautiful during the Summer. I can already imagine gardens filled with flowers and another set of pictures taken while wearing a long feminine dress around the castle.
If you ever decide to make a tour of  the Western part of Romania, Alba Iulia is a must see!

 I hope you enjoy the photos!
