TRANSYLVANIA

Its name derives from the Latin word „between forests”, this area rich in history and diversity still holds the charm and mystery of past times. Romanians, Hungarians and Germans have thrived together here, each preserving their own culture, but influencing each other, the result being a unique blend that is enchanting to this day.

Transylvania is best known as the mysterious land of blood thirsty vampires and howling wolves. Some may think it’s fictional, but this central Romanian region is a real place. And it’s pretty special, too.

Transylvania is so stuffed with attractions of all types of adventurous, cultural, historical and natural interest that there really is something for everybody.

Those wanting to ski will find slopes that suit all from the beginner or families with young children to those wanting to ski off-piste or try cross-country skis on rugged mountain plateau. Those who would like to hike, cycle or just ramble through stunning countryside, track bear, lynx or fox, watch birds or admire wild flowers in the unspoiled landscape can find many places where they can wander undisturbed on a journey back in time.

Culture vultures will enjoy discovering the Saxon villages, each guarded by a magnificent fortress church, and beautifully restored historic town centers crammed with museums, galleries, bars and restaurants.

Horror fans can pursue the legend of Dracula and his inspiration Vlad III Tepes. Spa holidays are becoming increasingly popular and Transylvania is home to a number of fun resorts.
