Transylvania Complete Tour : Explore an enchanting region with fairy-tale castles and fortresses
Transylvania, with its name coming from Latin ultra silvam (beyond the forest), is one of the most interesting and surprising regions of Romania. Its German, Hungarian and Romanian cultural traditions play a great role in its cultural and ethnic diversity.
The Transylvanian plateau is surrounded by mountain peaks and sparkling rivers which makes it both a pleasant place for a relaxing holiday with a landscape pleasing to the eye and an exciting place for adventure-seeking travellers.
