Transylvania

Unspoiled natural wonders and beautiful people

Situated in the central part of Romania, Transylvania, “the land beyond the forest, is a region well-known for the beauty and the peacefulness of the Carpathians and for its rich history. And we really believe that here, more than in any other place, you can find and feel the true spirit of Romanian people.

The timeless unspoiled nature coupled with beautifully preserved centuries old architecture and a lively contemporary cultural scene, with so many festivals and events, promise rewarding memories for anyone who wishes to explore it.
