About Transilvania

Transilvania is a historical region in the central part of Romania

TRANSILVANIA SHORTS is held at various location from Transilvania, such as Targu Mures, Sighisoara, Sibiu, Brasov, Cluj. Transilvania is a historical region in the central part of Romania. Bound on the east and south by its natural borders, the Carpathian mountain range, historical Transilvania extended eastward to the Apuseni Mountains. The term sometimes encompasses not only Transilvania proper, but also the historical regions of Crișana, Maramureș and the Romanian part of Banat. The region of Transilvania is known for the scenic beauty of its Carpathian landscape and its rich history. It also contains major Romanian cities such as Cluj-Napoca, Brașov and Sibiu. In the English-speaking world it has been commonly associated with vampires, chiefly due to the influence of Bram Stoker's famous novel Dracula as well as the many later film adaptations.

  • Dracula is an 1897 Gothic horror novel by Irish author Bram Stoker, inspired by Vlad the Impaler who was a three-time Voivode of Wallachia.

  • Sarmizegetusa was the capital and the most important military, religious and political centre of the Dacians prior to the wars with the Roman Empire.

  • Alba Iulia, Cluj-Napoca, Sibiu, Târgu Mureș and Sighișoara (UNESCO World Heritage Site and alleged birthplace of Vlad Dracula)
