What to see in Transylvania – Romania: a long weekend

Transylvania land of vampires and castles.
It is the ideal destination for those looking for Dracula, but also for those who love nature, cities and good food!

We visited Transylvania in April for a long weekend.

Thanks to a cheap flight with WizzAir and car rental from Bucharest airport, we could visit a place that in the imaginary remains attractive, scary and intriguing.

Transylvania is a region of Romania which has become famous thanks to Bram Stoker’s novel “ Count Dracula” .
Here is our tour for a long weekend (4 days) In Transylvania:

Day 4:  Unfortunately the weekend is over and from Sibiu we return to Otopeni Airport.

How to travel around: ithe easiest way to visit Transylvania is renting a car. This will give you a lot of freedom and the possibility to exlpore “out of the path” places.
Accommodation: We booked all the accommodation using Booking.com It’s really easy to find cheap places but there’s a great choice for everyone.
Special advices: While driving from one fairy-tale city to another, deviate from the main route and wander around the little country villages… you will discover hidden treasures!
