The main city in Transylvania is Cluj-Napoca, commonly known as Cluj, also the second largest city in Romania, after Bucharest. Brasov is another important tourist destination, especially for its historical and cultural sites. Sibiu, also included in our packages, is one of the most important cultural centres of Romania and was designated the European Capital of Culture for the year 2007. In Transylvania, there are many medieval smaller towns, the most renowned being, by far, Sighisoara. This is a popular tourist destination for its well-preserved walled old town, which is listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.
The Western world commonly associates Transylvania with vampires, because of the influence of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula and its many film adaptations. In the 2016 top by Lonely Planet, "Best in Travel 2016", Transylvania ranked first amongst the regions that should be visited. In the opinion of publishers, Transylvania does not just mean "vampire land", is also a region that still holds a lot of fortified churches and villages of a special beauty. This is the best place to rediscover hundreds of years old traditions and customs.
Looking forward to be being your trusted guide in Transylvania!
