Transylvania is `the land beyond the forests`. The name of this magic Romanian land flanked as a fortress by the Carpathian Mountains, originates from Latin.

Transylvania is "the land beyond the forests". The name of this magic Romanian land flanked like a fortress by the Carpathian Mountains, originates from Latin. Surrounded by mysteries and legends, riddled with fortified churches, peasant fortresses and castles, blessed with breathtaking landscapes, Transylvania is one of the most attractive tourist Romanian destination. Many UNESCO objectives are here: Dacian Capital from 2000 years ago - Sarmisegetuza Regia, Fortified Churches - Valea Viilor, Biertan, Viscri, Prejmer, Saschiz, Darjiu, Calnic or Sighisoara Medieval Citadel.


Prince Charles discovered here what the West  lost – the still living rural culture, the virgin forests, people who still keep their traditions, organic food. By the foundation he owned, he brought to life few villages which had fallen into ruin after the massive exodus of the Transylvanian Saxons. In Viscri or Malancrav Villages, Prince Charles bought and renovated houses built during the 18th – 19th centuries, he supported the locals to renovate the Saxon houses in a traditional style, so that they offer really special conditions of accommodation and meal. The communities got life. And it is a delight to walk around their lanes made of river stones, among geese and ducks, under the vigilant gaze of the village’s old women who stand on the benches in front of their houses, always ready to talk to you.

 



You'll be amazed by the Transylvanian castles, towns, and medieval citadels or fortified churches. Sitting on a high rock, strategically controlling the road between Transylvania and Walachia,  Bran Castle is one of the most famous castles in the world. All around this mysterious aura castle, it was woven the legend of Count Dracula, imagined by the Irish novelist Bram Stocker. Another famous Transylvanian castle is  Corvin Castle, belonging to Iancu de Hunedoara, Transylvania’s Grand Prince, a Christianity’s defender. On the road to Transylvania, from Bucharest, you have the opportunity to admire the great Peles Castle. Sighisoara citadel shines between the cities and the castles registered within UNESCO World Heritage.
