Description

Our projects in Romania are available for anyone interested in volunteering in the developing world, including those on a college summer break, gap year, career break or volunteer vacation. Projects Abroad Romania has its office in the historic city of Brasov in the capital of Transylvania. A wide range of international volunteer work is available such as Teaching, Care, Journalism internships, Veterinary Medicine internships, Sports, Archaeology and Drama projects.

Set in the Carpathian Mountains and with a ski resort nearby, Brasov is an unusual combination of impressive historical squares and palaces, sandwiched between former-Communist tower blocks. While volunteering abroad, you’ll be living with a local host family in town, and you will find that spending time with a Romanian family and their friends is an entertaining and enlightening experience in itself!

Your Romanian hosts will make sure that you eat heartily, and there will be plenty of local wines to try – it’s common to find yourself sitting down to Sunday lunch at 1pm and not getting up until 5pm! They may feed you mamaliga, a corn bread which seems to come with every meal or ciorba, a spicy soup. There is also sure to be lots of good conversation during meal times.

Highlights

The ancient city of Brasov has many sights and museums, and a full cultural program of theater, music and puppetry performances. The town center contains a wide range of restaurants within walking distance, and it’s also easy to explore more of the city with frequent buses and trolleybuses.
It’s only an hour from the town to Dracula’s castle, or the medieval home of Vlad the Impaler. Indeed, there are plenty of attractions in Transylvania, but it’s also easy for you to visit Bucharest, the Black Sea or the Danube Delta. Other volunteers have even explored Hungary, Bulgaria and the Ukraine after finishing their volunteer placements.
