One week trip in Covasna, Romania
Hi, everybody, I want to share with you, one of the most outstanding week of my life spent in a trip to Covasna. Covasna is situated almost at the center of the country, about 500 km from my hometown Oradea. It was a trip what a got from the university like a bonus for my good marks as many other students.
I had the glad to go in this vacation with one of my best friend Dan who also got this trip ticket. We traveled with the train about 10 hours, and we can’t sleep because of some peoples in our compartment, so we arrived really tired but extremely happy to Covasna.
The town is just amazing, designed for tourism, all the shops, restaurants, hotels was built just around the center of the city. About the population what can I say it’s that the 90% of the people are Hungarians however we are in the center of Romania, everywhere you go, you are free to talk in Hungarian everybody will understand.
We was accommodated in a 3 star hotel room, not the nicest hotel I ever seen but it was enough for us.
After a good sleep we just find out the other students in that hotel and we became really fast a happy and always joking gang. After this day all we do we do together. We had some nice trips near Covasna, but in Brasov and Saint Anna Lake also. In every evening we played mime and other stupid games just to have fun, till 4 o’clock. It was an amazing trip, at the beginning of the week, nobody knows nobody, at the end of the week we made really strong friendships.That was just a short introduction, if you interested in please read my other articles related with this vacation about the places we visited.
