Where we are based in Romania

Brasov

Our Romania volunteer opportunities and the Projects Abroad Romania offices are based in Brasov.


Located in central Romania, this historic town is surrounded by lush greenery, and the rolling hills and peaks of the Carpathian Mountains. Home to spectacular gothic and medieval architecture and historical sites, Brasov is also located near a ski resort and several castles.


Make the most of living with a local host family, share traditions and stories, and we encourage you to try some of the delicious traditional food they cook. Eat foods like sarmale (meat, rice, and herbs wrapped in cabbage) and plăcinte cu brânză dulce (fried dough filled with sweet cheese and sprinkled with powdered sugar).

AIRPORT PICKUP, FLIGHTS AND VISAS

When you arrive at your respective airport, a member of Projects Abroad staff will be there to meet you. You can find more detailed information on arrival airports, orientation, and visas on our Romania Arrival Procedures page.
