Durau is located approximately 180 miles (290 kilometers) from Bucharest, the country's capital.
Vacationing in just one place, regardless of its popularity, will only ever provide you with a narrow window into the wider textures and qualities of a region. So schedule in some time to tour Eastern Romania's other sights and attractions. Piatra Neamt, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the west, and Vanatori-Neamt, 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southwest of Durau are good spots to check out if you have the time.
When you come to Durau, why don't you make a day trip to Suceava. Approximately 50 miles (80 kilometers) to the north, this regional transport and shopping hub is where you'll find Putna Monastery, Dragomirna Monastery and Voronet Monastery. Humor Monastery and Suceava Fortress are also good spots for investigating while you are here.
If you're on the lookout for activities that won't blow the budget, why not take a little tour of Eastern Romania's popular lighthouses. Whether you're believer or an atheist, you're sure to find a little enlightenment in Eastern Romania's monasteries and other places of worship.
Breathe deeply and feel your stresses melt away as you enjoy some of the area's relaxing pastimes such as wildlife watching and cycling. Specialized tours are a fascinating way to discover the places most visitors never see. Join into one of the winery tours and city walking tours.
As the sun sets on your adventures, spend what's left of your Romanian lei on last-minute keepsakes and say La revedere to the people you've enjoyed getting to know and the places you've enjoyed.
