The meaning of the word transylvania is "the land beyond the woods" and the country is just as mysterious as its name. Located submontane the Carpathian Mountains and in the middle of Romania the seven "circles" of Transylvania were mainly inhabited by the Siebenbürgen Saxons of German descent.
Today the region is called a hidden treasure for a reason, the LONELY PLANET even pronounced it THE travel destination of 2016; Transylvania not only offers you its beautiful landscape with unique biological diversity but also historical, charming cities. The small villages also are one- of- a- kind. The time seems to have come to a halt- the residents' natural life, the signs of German influences and the scenery of green hills and wide fields have some kind of magic.
