The month of Ramadan has arrived, and what better time to celebrate Eid Al Adha 2021 than during this festive season. The first day of Ramadan falls on the ninth month of the Islamic calendar, which falls on the ninth month of the lunar calendar. This year, the celebration falls on the first day of Ramadan, on 28th August. Since Islam is practiced by almost all of the Christian population in Romania, there are a number of places throughout Romania where you can observe the fasting while listening to traditional Muslim music and also participate in the festivities.
Eid Al Adha celebrations are celebrated with great vigor throughout the country. The main Eid celebration takes place in the largest city, Romania, which is Transylvania. Throughout the country, from the mountains of Bucharest to the beaches of Southeastern Romania, there are a number of places where Eid celebrations take place. Some places have special nights for Eid celebrations exclusively, and some other places have them as part of a larger celebration.
With a country that is ethnically Romanian, and with an Orthodox Christian majority, the celebrations are not without controversy. Many Christians deem it to be a pagan festival and a celebration of the old myths regarding the Fall of Adam and Eve. While some Muslims consider it to be a religious festival and place the Eid Al Adha on the same day that the Pilgrims landed in America, some Muslims view it as symbolic of the migration to Egypt when Muhammed was born.
In Transylvania, which is Muslim based, the only Eid celebration that takes place is Eid Al Adha at the Greater Mosque. This is located in Sighisoara, a city in Romania’s South Mountains. Muslims in Transylvania gather to take part in the celebration before the sun sets for the day. They break their fasts and celebrate with food and drink, dancing, games, poetry reading and storytelling. It is a great place for a family outing as both the kids and adults can enjoy the fun filled atmosphere.

The Bucegi Mountains provides the perfect setting for a memorable Eid celebration in Romania. Sitting high in the mountains above the quaint village of Bucegi, which is also home to the Bucegi Orthodox Church. A spectacular view of the Danube can be seen from the church. This traditional village celebration is held on Fridays, at sunset, and is a great opportunity to see villages like Cernavoda, Gereba, Kintra and Sibenik, which are all very photogenic. If you don’t make it to Bucegi for the festival, you may try to book a trip to the Peles Castle, which is a World Heritage site and one of the most popular tourist attractions in Transylvania.
