Transylvania is located in the central-north-west of Romania and is surrounded by the Carpathians. Transylvania is the largest region of Romania and probably the best known one. Transylvania is home to some of Europe’s best-preserved medieval towns. Colorful centuries-old traditions are alive and well in the small villages of Transylvania. Its very name brings to mind visions of mountain peaks rising up to the sky above wooded valleys, visions of high-roofed wooden churches and legendary castles. In Transylvania new vistas and leisure activities appear wherever you go.

Bucovina is worth visiting not only for its wealth of religious art and the beautiful monasteries, but also for the natural beauty and simplicity of the region.

Maramures villages are distinguished by their unique wooden churches with tall spires and shingled roofs.
