A Romanian little town is popular among the Japanese tourists. Jata tourism company which specializes in trips to Europe has asked its members to create a list of best little towns in Europe that are worth visiting.

The list includes 30 towns and villages and includes towns such as Berat, from Albania, Civita di Bagnoregio, Italy, Lech from Austria and Lefkara from Cyprus. The Japanese have chosen Gura Humorului as the best town to visit.

Gura Humorului is situated in the north of Romania, 35 km from Suceava city. The town is surrounded by forests and has been well known for its healing waters and clean air since the 19th century when it became a spa town.


The town is indeed great for tourists as it has many interesting places to visit, such as the Voronet monastery which is considered the sixtine chapel of East of Europe. Additionally, those who love to ski can enjoy the Soimul ski slope which is 1478 metres length.

        So they are definitely on to a good thing. I thought about going up that way and then over into Ukrainian Podolia which has interesting castles etc too
