Romania, a country located in the north of the Balkan Peninsula, on the western shores of the Black Sea, is best known as the home to the world-known Dracula’s Castle. If your path ever takes you to the country full of beautiful and untouched nature and cultural diversity, these are the souvenirs you should take home from your trip.

A Bottle of Țuică

Țuică, Romania’s national drink, is prepared only from plums. A bottle of Țuică is a great souvenir for drinkers, because it contains approximately 24–65% of alcohol. Taste, quality and age should be the most important criteria when purchasing a bottle.

A Jar of Green Walnut Jam

Picked in June, and turned into a delicacy, the green walnut jam is considered a traditional Romanian specialty. It takes quite some time to prepare it; the marination takes up to several hours, and the whole process contains a special boiling method as well.

Dracula-Inspired Souvenirs

When you think of Romania, what is the first thing that comes to your mind? We assume that it is the Count Dracula. In this country, everything is Dracula-inspired. Rubber duckies, T-shirts, magnets, bags, the choice is yours!
