Via Transilvanica is a 1,400 km trail that reveals 2,000 years in the history of Transylvania, from Putna to Drobeta Turnu-Severin. It is a Tăşuleasa Social project, which is an NGO that deals with environmental, educational, social, cultural, and more issues. The campus can be found in Piatra Fântânele, in Bistriţa-Năsăud County. This trail can be done in stages, or fully, by foot, by bike or even by horseback, depending on what works best for each traveler. The travellers guide provide general information about food and accommodation, places and objectives of touristic interest.
Via Transilvanica is all about diversity, from the green grass at the shores of the Danube river, all the way to the mountain peaks, the scenery is as different as the people we hope will walk this road. Thus, the trail allows us to discover important elements about Romania and the people who live here.
The trail is composed of 7 segments. Until now (may 2021), 4 of them are completely finished.
