A historic region in central Romania known for medieval castles, Carpathian mountain landscapes, and tales of Dracula.

Tips from the community

While unbelievable from a bird’s eye view, the best way to explore Transylvania (AKA, Dracula’s hometown) is actually by car. But be wary, the winding road of the Transfagarasan Highway is filled with endless curves, dramatic drops, wandering sheep, and almost no barrier protection. You’ve been warned. Make a pit stop at the famous Romanian castle, Bran’s Castle, castle and explore one of the most mysterious places on earth.

Where better to spend October than in a mythical medieval neighborhood brimming with history and excitement?
