Bucharest, the national capital, is located roughly 220 miles (354 kilometers) to the southeast of Padis.
Savvy travelers often use Padis as a launch pad for further explorations. This sought-after tourism region is home to a wealth of wonderful attractions. If you're looking for other places to check out, you'll find Vartop, 20 miles (32 kilometers) to the northwest, and Belis 25 miles (40 kilometers) to the southwest.
When it's time to spread your wings, visit the nearest center. Cluj-Napoca sits 50 miles (80 kilometers) away and features visitor attractions such as Babes-Bolyai University, Matthias Corvinus House and Dormition of the Theotokos Cathedral. Unirii Square, National Theatre and Avram Iancu Square are just a sample of the other interesting sights in Cluj-Napoca that should be on every visitor's list.
For a budget outdoors activity that will interest the entire family, be sure to check out the region's popular gardens. You'll find a few moments of tranquility in Transylvania 's cathedrals.
For those leading a fast-paced life, the ideal vacation is often all about making time to breathe deeply. When it's time to unwind, copy the locals and try shore fishing or bird watching. If you are after something a little different from seeing the sights, why not check out the local watersports? Water skiing and canoeing are available here.
As your time here draws to an end, spend your last Romanian lei on last-minute keepsakes and bid a fond La revedere (farewell) to the people you've enjoyed getting to know and the spots you've been.
