Visit Transylvania

In terms of the international tourism potential, Transylvania benefits from several medieval cities, located in the plains or on mountains. These cities include Sibiu, a historic German city built by Romanian Saxons, with wide streets and very old houses. The Black Church, the most important monument of ancient architecture in Romania, can be visited by tourists. The Transylvanian countryside is the most frequented tourist area of Romania. In the last decades, Transylvania was visited by millions of tourists, of whom 80% were foreign. Nevertheless, most of the tourists in ancient times had an abstract interest in spending holidays near Dracula.
The landscape is very fascinating, formed by mountains and creeks, with snow-covered peaks and deep rivers routing to the Black Sea.
In the second half of the last century, tourism became the most important part of Romania's economy. Originally a beach holiday destination, the region attracts now increasing numbers of responsible visitors, visiting the Transylvanian country, and additional adventure and activity holiday-makers. The main tourist attractions include the Castle of the Romanian kings in Sinaia, Dracula's Castle in Bran, the bear reserve in Zarnesti near Brasov, a number of national parks, the Mocanita railway in Maramures and the historic city of Sibiu. Tourism has created new markets for local suppliers and for hotels and travel agencies. A spin-off from the increased tourism has been the visitation of big parts of the land by foreigners, often as a contrast to prestige rather than for recreation.
