Ivo Pereira, founder of Travel Romania

Hello! My name is Ivo, the driving force behind Travel Romania. I was born and raised in Portugal and have traveled to various countries including Spain, Poland, and the United Kingdom. In June 2020, I moved to Bucharest, Romania. My diverse travel experiences have enriched my perspective, but it’s Romania that has truly captivated me with its stunning landscapes, rich history, and vibrant culture.

Our Expertise

I’ve explored Romania extensively, from the Carpathian Mountains to charming historic towns like Sibiu and Brasov. My travels have given me a deep understanding of Romanian culture, cuisine, and nightlife. Whether you’re planning a trip to the capital Bucharest, looking to hike in the fairy-tale Transylvanian countryside, or want to experience Romania’s famous festivals like Untold, I’m here to guide you. Browse through our posts on topics like Bucharest nightlife, renting an apartment, and learning the Romanian language to get started.

Our mission is to inspire you to discover Romania, an underrated gem in Eastern Europe. We aim to be your go-to source for all things related to this beautiful country, helping you fully experience its magic.

How My Work Will Benefit You

I’m not just another local tour guide; I’m a seasoned traveler and a foreigner who has navigated the complexities of life in Romania. The central question driving my work is, “How can we make your Romanian adventure truly unforgettable, especially when you’re navigating unfamiliar territory?

What Sets Me Apart

  • Language Barriers: I moved to Romania without speaking the language and faced the challenge of daily interactions with non-English speakers. This experience has equipped me with invaluable insights into overcoming language barriers.
  • Cultural Integration: Marrying a Romanian has given me a unique perspective on the culture, traditions, and social norms, enriching the depth of the guidance I offer.
  • Legal Hurdles: I’ve successfully navigated the labyrinthine process of obtaining a residence permit and setting up a company in Romania. I understand the bureaucracies between Romania and other countries, and I can guide you through them.
  • Financial Complexities: Opening a bank account in Romania as a foreigner comes with its own set of challenges, which I’ve successfully navigated. I can guide you through the financial intricacies you might face.
  • Housing Challenges: I’ve gone through the processes of both renting and buying a house in Romania. I can offer firsthand advice on how to navigate these often complicated procedures.
