But why travel to Transylvania at all? No matter if you are interested in culture, nature or the countryside there are opportunities in Transylvania. Transylvania is a great mix between city, wild nature and countryside. In Sibiu, you can experience an old European University town with old buildings, art and life. You can also go to the largest city in Transylvania, Cluj-Napoca. Both Sibiu and Cluj-Napoca have an international airport.
We have had a brilliant week in Transylvania and we left with memories for life. In addition to having seen and experienced lots of excitement, it was of course, very special to see the places my grandfather grew up and meet our relatives in Targu-Mures.
Maria and Alexandru were great guides and have done a great job for us all week! All in all, both kids and adults had an unforgettable holiday, and we would highly recommend Romania as a holiday country to others we know.
We came back from Romania today, full of impressions from an amazing trip. Everything has worked out splendidly, from when we landed until we went home. We were also very surprised at how sensible it is for us tourists, how clean and pretty it was all over the place and how “modern” country has become in just few years. Just happy people and beautiful nature!
