Romania: Come for the swamps, stay for the pointy rooftop things.

Perhaps you prefer a land of choice? Romania! (Logo scandal be damned.) It’s the change the perception thing with some of the country’s more famous names, and it’ll have n uphill battle here in the U.S. After all, Hollywood’s been the ultimate anti-tourism leader for years portraying places like Romania in a negative light. (You never see a horror film set in Disney World.) Us dumb Americans think this is the country that brought you vampires and Hostel, not beaches with frolicky models on overcast days. Shit, wait, that was one of the set-ups to lure the backpackers in the second one, no? On second thought, go see a monument or national park here—we have lots. Just stay away from the edge and you’ll be fine.
