Travel to Transylvania

In Europe there are a lot of places that we can visit and that can make our vacations a unique experience. One of the most fascinating places you can visit is Transylvania , a region of Romania that is well known for being the birthplace of Dracula , the famous Earl from Bram Stoker’s novel.

Its landscapes are spectacular and you can find a lot of nature thanks to its mountains and forests. There are also many castles, all of them spectacular and each with a story to tell. It is one of the richest areas in the country and one of the ones with the greatest historical content in all of Europe. Take note of some of the sights of Transylvania :

Bran Castle : It is one of the greatest attractions in the region since it was the place where Vlad Tepes lived, which was the inspiration for Stoker to create Dracula as a bloodthirsty prince who died fighting against more than 120,000 Turks that besieged him and 200 of his soldiers. He tortured his enemies and all those who betrayed him, always doing it with a blunt stick and nailing it to that person so that he would die slowly.

Lake Rosu : It is a red lake that was formed as a result of a landslide and that is red because, according to legend, the hikers who died during the landslide bled to death, passing that blood to form part of the water forever.

Salina Turda : It is a salt mine that became a very popular tourist destination in 1992 and that maintains a constant temperature of between 10 and 12ºC thanks to having been completely renovated a couple of years ago.

What all those who have been to Transylvania recommend the most is to do one of the routes of Castles that there are throughout the region since you will discover spectacular places.
