About Transylvania

Thousands of years of cultural heritage and garlic as a life saver.

 

Lying within the Carpathian arc, Transylvania, „the land beyond the forest”, is surprisingly, one of the regions with the most unspoiled scenery.

It is a special place with historic, ethnic, cultural and ethnographic characteristics that set it clearly apart from the other Romanian provinces.

A journey through Transylvania will take you into the heart of a different world, with citadels and fortresses from the Middle Ages, with Germanic burgs, fortified churches, numerous examples of Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque architecture, and old traditions.

Thousands of years of cultural heritage  and garlic as a life saver.

The Carpathians offer one of the best hiking possibilities in Europe

The Carpathian Mountains are never far away in Transylvania, and for anyone fond of walking, this is one of the most beautiful, least exploited regions in Europe. Hikes can last several days, but it’s perfectly feasible to make briefer, yet equally beautiful forays in the Piatra Craiului and Bucegi mountains.
The scenery is breathtakingly dramatic
