Chicago Tribune Features Bulgaria & Romania: Frescoes & Fortresses

A recent article in the Chicago Tribune’s travel section included MIR’s Bulgaria & Romania: Frescoes & Fortresses small group tour in its weekly roundup of travel trends. While “Bulgaria and Romania don’t show up on your typical European tour offerings,” the article still shows there are plenty of reasons to book the tour:

The 16-day itinerary starts in Sofia, Bulgaria, and includes the St. George Rotunda from the fourth century and the Rila Monastery, that dates to 927. In Romania, there will be explorations of Bucharest before moving into the countryside for highlights such as Bran Castle in Transylvania, the inspiration for Dracula’s home, and four painted monasteries in Bucovina that are World Heritage sites.
