Join the Summer University and visit:


An energetic, dynamic and fun city, Bucharest is the capital of Romania, known for the cheap nightlife and for the splendid 17th- and 18th-century buildings.


The city where the first oil rafinery was registered, Ploiesti is the county seat of Prahova County and lies in the historical region of Wallachia in Romania.


Under the German name Hermannstadt, Sibiu has always been the centre of Romania's German minority, ever since medieval times. The cobblestone streets, the eyes of the roofs that watch your every step and gesture, the impressive churches with their elegant towers, the famous Bridge of Lies, the chic cafés, they all make Sibiu one of the most fascinating and romantic medieval cities in Romania

Alba Iulia

In the middle of the country, there is a diamond shaped city, called Alba Iulia .In the early times, Alba Iulia was a Capital in the Roman Empire, a medieval capital of Transylvania, the first capital fort, the last act of unification of all Romanian lands and the place where Romania was born as a modern state in the 20th century


Timişoara is a special city. Everybody feels it, those who were born and live here and those who come here and then decide to stay. Timişoara is a city of parks and of heritage buildings, a city both cultural and sportive, a university city, and especially an offering city to those visiting it. Timişoara is the city of freedom, which in December 1989 becomes the first communism-free city in Romania.
