  • Highlights

Transylvania (in Romanian Transilvania or Ardeal)  is rich in myth and misty medieval sites: there about 100 castles and fortresses and about 70 fortified churches. Romania‘s greatest and best preserved castles and fortresses are to be found here. But for the more curious traveler, there are many small villages with old houses and fortified churches. 

The nature is protected through natural and national parks like Apuseni, Grădiștea Muncelului or the Gorge of the upper Mureș.

Most big cities are very western Europe like, and the infrastructure is generally good, making it easy for travellers.
