Transylvania is certainly the most famous region of Romania, which includes the counties of Alba, Bistrita, Brasov, Cluj, Covasna, Harghita, Hunedoara, Mures as well as Sibiu. Transylvania is certainly the most famous region of Romania, . Here tourists & travelers from all over the world follow the traces of Dracula, visit some of the historic centres and explore the fantastic nature in Transylvania.
But let’s face it, who doesn’t think of Dracula first when he/she hears the word Transylvania. So it is not surprising that tourists & travelers from all over the world still follow the traces of Dracula in Transylvania. But Transylvania offers much more than spooky stories and vampires. Among other things, the region offers beautiful nature reserves, which are still home to wild animals such as the brown bear and the lynx, but also picturesque town centers and various sights, including castles, palaces, churches, monasteries or statues. Furthermore, in Transylvania you will find a variety of leisure activities and recreational opportunities, a wide selection of restaurants and various accommodations for almost every budget.
“Beyond the forest”, that’s how you could explain the name Transilvania, which already makes clear that the region is characterized by beautiful forests, in which you can hike extensively, but also bike and climb. Furthermore, there are magnificent mountain formations and numerous lakes, which also invite you to spend time in nature. In short, Transylvania is a paradise for nature lovers, who will find hiking trails and mountain climbing, among other things. I was also immediately fascinated by the numerous castles and palaces, as well as the picturesque city centers of the cities of Brasov, Sighisoara and Sibui, to name only the most important ones.
Whether it is a hiking vacation, a family vacation or a city break, Transylvania has everything to offer. Moreover, in winter the region is a great place for skiing and snowboarding.
