Transilvania (Transylvania) is the large region situated in the centre of the country, enclosed by the Carpathians. The high mountains in the East and South of the region are a real challenge for climbers and hikers, while the lower and more populated Apuseni mountains in the West and North-West offer delightful landscapes and a unique experience for travelers of any age.
Many of the cities in this region have always been important cultural or economical centres and the hard-working people around here have kept their skills and their pride over time. Since the end of the 11th century most of the region was under Hungarian rule on-and-off until World War I, so there is no wonder the communities here have changed their ways under the Austro-Hungarian influence and administration, but their Romanian soul has perpetuated the traditions and customs over this whole period of time and Transilvania is today a kaleidoscope of traditional art.
