My Life

Perfect Reading for a Tourist in Romania


When I was in Stockholm in May, my friend Carro recommended me to read the book The Historian by Elisabeth Kostova since much of the story takes place in this region. When I read on the back of it, it turned out to be a modern story about Vlad Ţepeş, or Dracula, chasing the legend around in England, France, the Balkans, Turkey, Hungary and of course Romania. So when better to read it than on my vacation in Romania? The story is really good and exciting, even a bit scary under the roof top in Transylvania. I still haven’t finished it, but I wanted to recommend it anyway as the perfect travel literature when travelling in Central and Eastern Europe. And I want to thank my Cara Carro for recommending it!



In Swedish, but the translation is really good.
