Romania’s Transylvania: Natural treasures and ancient fortresses on display at ITB China 2024

Nestled in the Carpathian Mountains, the Transylvania region of Romania has a host of natural treasures, including glacial lakes, the Scărişoara Ice-Cave, and the Piatra Craiului National Park, where bears are in their element.

The region is home to some of the most well-preserved medieval centres in Europe, such as Sighișoara, one of the world’s few inhabited city-citadels. Seven of the region’s fortified churches, including Prejmer, one of the largest fortified churches in South-eastern Europe, are UNESCO World Heritage Sites.

Transylvania is also well-known known thanks to the writer Bram Stoker and his famous Count Dracula, linked to one of the most famous castles in the region – Bran, which was built in the XIV century.
