Transylvanian traditions and heritage
Transylvania strikes an exquisite balance of ancient history and alluring landscapes. Visit the gothic fairytale city of Brasov and roam past medieval Saxon walls, churches and a 13th-century old castle. Leave fairytales for folktales hiking through villages in Transylvania’s Eastern Carpathian borders. Here observe ancient traditions such as wool and cheese making. All whilst being awestruck by the Zarnesti Gorges and Piatra Craiului National Park.
Well preserved architecture and timeless traditions reside in Transylvania. Surrounding this region is Europe’s last true wild mountain range, The Carpathians. Inside lay villagers unphased by time living off the land. Nature spreads even further into the biodiverse Piatra Craiului with 32 unique species and 100 different types of butterflies.
Time hasn’t progressed much outside of the rural areas. The cities of Brasov and Sighisoara arguably look somewhat the same since the XVIth century. These areas have captivating baroque architecture and a rich multicultural heritage.
Travel to nature-filled areas in Transylvania hiking offbeat trails in Piatra Craiului and meeting artisans. Likewise, visit a handloom and commute like a local via horse and cart. Explore the ancient history of medieval Brasov dating back to 1211. Have traditional dinners and village lunches with eco products. Whilst being blessed by the stunning natural landscapes of the Transylvanian Carpathians.
