This was a mere example of the real touristic treasure hidden within the heart of Transylvania.  There are thousands of people that visit this area and want to know where to go and what not to miss. Considering that the list of touristic attractions is quite lengthily, you will have to choose just a couple of them, depending on how much time you have on your hands. Use your time wisely. This is a good way to gather important information on all objectives worth visiting.

Cluj-Napoca, Targu-Mures, Sighisoara, Sibiu, and Brasov could be some of the main points to check if you plan on making a tour of Transylvania. There are the major attraction points in this region, but they only cover a very small percentage of the whole natural, cultural and historical legacy kept in this land. With attention and patience, you will be able to create an itinerary which will bring you incredible touristic experiences. Why not discover a new town to explore with those that you love? It is easier than you think these days.

Most of the cities in Transylvania have a strong medieval background and you can expect to find pretty much in any of them at least one majestic castle or a fortress. They were key points in planning the strategic military, and in present day you can still visit some of the most impressive constructions ever built in Romania.

On top of all that, you will be bewildered by the magic of the mountains. The Carpathians are real jewels of nature and their forests are like a gate towards a completely different land with sights which our minds cannot fathom. The mountains are without a doubt a source of pleasure and delight.

Szeki Palace in Cluj Napoca is a real architectural masterpiece. It was built following neogothic influences and many of its decorations are carved in stone. Here, you can also spend some time in the Union Square, a place where revolutions were ignited. Also, you can visit Cetatuia, a beautiful fortress built at a 400 m altitude which will provide a panoramic view of the city.

If you’re passionate about medieval constructions, then you will simply love Sighisoara and Sibiu (with over 900 years of history). Pretty much every street has a story to tell and you could spend hours walking and still be amazed at the beauty hidden in these locations.

On the way, you will also find some really special places with an unexpected turn. For instance, in Sapanta, there is the only “happy” cemetery in the world. All the graves are unique, with handmade crosses, carefully painted and each one of them as a special inscription. Usually, these are short verses that encompass the personality of the deceased. It’s a different approach to spirituality and it’s a beautiful way to mark the essence of a life.
