Romania has a temperate continental climate with four distinct seasons, characterised by hot summers and cold winters, with intermediate spring and autumn.
After years of study abroad, I returned to Romania to help my father complete a ‘small’ project on the wild orchids of the Bucegi Mountains Natural Park, which surrounds Sinaia, my birthplace. Pretty soon, I realised that orchids were growing everywhere around the country, not only in my father’s ‘little corner of paradise’, the Bucegi Mountains.
