For travellers who may be interested in well-preserved medieval vestiges, Transylvania is no doubt a first hand cultural-tourist destination.

Transylvania, whose name derives from the Latin "TRANSILVANA" (the country beyond the forests) lies in the center of Romania, being surrounded with the Carpathian mountains.

Its very name brings to mind visions of mountain peaks rising up to the sky above wooded valleys and sparkling streams, visions of high-roofed wooden churches, legendary castles and a troubled history.
But there is much more to it: ski resorts and health spas, hiking trails and the Retezat National Park, fascinating medieval towns, art museums and good hotels.

Transylvania towns

There are 10 counties streching 96,837 sq. km and over 4 million inhabitants.

Throughout history, Transylvania's territory has been inhabitated by Romanians alongside Hungarians, Germans (Saxons), Szeklers, armenians etc.
That is the reason why architectural heritage bears the character of different cultures and civilisation.

The shepherd is honoured as a guardian of an ancestral rural heritage.
