  1. The one on the right would be my favourite.

  2. I was recently watching some travel show where the host was visiting Romania and now I'd love to go there to see the beautiful rolling hills and ancient churches.

  3. the Romanian fortified church is fascinating, and attractive. Must have been turbulent times there in the past.
