Why you should go

For all the culture vultures looking for a weekend break in a city filled with art, history and museums, Craiova is a beautiful and busy city in southwestern Romania. Depending on the duration of your stay, it’s advisable to plan an itinerary before your trip – there is so much to see and do!

The beautiful Ethnographic Museum is a must-see; this fairy-tale-like exhibition is based on folk traditions in the Oltenia region surrounding Craiova. It all starts downstairs with bread making (who doesn’t love bread?!) and progresses through to pottery, clothing and folk art, amongst other activities. The Craiova Art Museum is also worth a visit; it is most famous for the wonderful collection of sculptures by Brâncuşi, including The Kiss, The Thigh and Miss Pogany.

The city is also home to a large number of religious buildings, many of them dating back to medieval times. The Church of Cosuna Monastery is the oldest building in Craiova, dating back to the 15th century, and the Madona Dudu Church is also worth a visit. It is famous for its awe-inspiring mural paintings, completed by Romanian painter Gheorghe Tattarescu.

When you should go

Craiova’s weather is relatively mild between March and October, with summers being particularly warm. No matter what time of year you choose to visit, there are countless things to do and places to visit, so you’ll never be short of something to do!

Where you should stay

Don’t miss!

Looking for something a little different to do during your stay in Craiova? Why not try one (or all!) of the following:

  • The Botanical Garden – definitely worth a visit if the weather is suitable. Take a picnic, and a few snaps for Instagram of course!

  • Temple Bar – an Irish pub named after the infamous tourist region of Dublin sits in the heart of Craiova. Head down for a pint of Guinness and some traditional Irish music.
