While Transylvania may be known in popular culture as the home of Dracula, the incredible lanscape and rich history of this region are not to be overlooked.

Further, the medieval towns and architecture scattered throughout the region are some of the oldest and best preserved in the country. As host of many festivals and events, Transylvania is a cultural center for foreigners and locals alike. It's the country's largest and most well-known region, and the majority of tourism within Romania exists in this historic area.
