Transylvania. A real beautiful myth.

Transylvania is famous for being the land where Dracula enjoys himself (and others) the most. But there's so much more than vampires and mystic lore to Transylvania. The real magic comes from the untainted nature and the unique cultural legacy. Situated in the heart of Romania and surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains, Transylvania is an enchanting invitation to wild adventures, cultural explorations and old-fashioned good time.

The land of the living history.

Transylvania has won the race against time. And great wonders of Gothic architecture stand witness. One such wonder is Brasov City, which kept most of its medieval looks and icons, including the imposing Black Church, the Old Town Hall and the Ancient Citadel. Near Brasov is the famed Bran Castle, better known as Dracula's Castle. Another fascinating edifice close by is the Peles Castle, built in Sinaia by King Carol I. But nothing surpasses the charm of Sighisoara - the only inhabited medieval fortress in Europe. Sighisoara is the birthplace of Vlad the Impaler aka Dracula. Secret passageways and a spectacular 14th century Clock Tower. These are just two of the reasons why tourists love Sighisoara.

For those who value Saxon art and culture, Sibiu City has much to offer. The Brukenthal Art Museum, the Museum of Folk Technology and the dreamlike Gothic architecture are pure joy and inspiration. Further away, in Hunedoara, lies yet another magnificent icon of Transylvania: the Corvin Castle, which was rebuilt in gothic style in the 15th century by Prince Iancu Corvin.

As you roam across the mountains in search of local authenticity and mystery, you can find real magic in small villages that seem to defy time. Here, people have found meaning in arcane customs, legends and a genuine traditional way of living. So, don't be surprised if you see shepherds selling by the roadside large rounds of cheese or young women wearing colorful, traditional costumes.

Mountains of wild beauty.

Transylvania's natural beauty lives up to its historical legacy. With four national parks protecting more than 300 species of flora and fauna, two biosphere reserves and three natural parks, Transylvania has huge areas of untouched, wild nature. So, don't miss Retezat National Park, Piatra Craiului National Park and Bucegi Natural Park. What's more, tourists can have fun in any season by enjoying a variety of sports such as horseback riding, rafting, hiking rock-climbing, biking, skiing, skating and snowboarding. All in world-renowned mountain resorts like Poiana Brasov, Predeal and Sinaia.
