What does "Lonely Planet.com" say about this special destination?
“Transylvania is best known as the mysterious land of bloodthirsty vampires and howling wolves. Some may think it’s fictional, but this central Romanian region is a real place. And it’s pretty special, too. Bordered to the east by the Carpathian Mountains, ‘the land beyond the forest’ still feels undiscovered. So, pack your garlic – here’s the lowdown on one of Eastern Europe’s most captivating regions” (LARA BRUNT- Lonely Planet Writer)
- Land of wild life: we have the biggest population of brown bears in Europe
“It’s great for bear-spotting - The Carpathian Mountains are home to wolves, lynx and Europe’s largest population of brown bears. Around 5000 bears roam the oak and beech forests. The Libearty Bear Sanctuary in Zarnesti, near Brașov cares for more than 70 bears rescued from cages and circuses.” (Lonely Planet.com)
Here are some highlights of Transylvania:
Fagaras Fortress - your unconventional conference in a medieval fortress
Fagaras Fortress is the most important monument of Fagaras and one of the largest in the country and even Europe.
The Fortress is an impressive stronghold originally built in 1310 and expanded from the fifteenth to the seventeenth century to create a square castle surrounded by a further thick curtain wall with five towers. Much of this later work was carried out during the reigns of Transylvanian Princes Gabriel Bethlen and György Rákóczi I.
Fagaras Fortress also has a moat which was used in times of conflict or unrest, all of which adds up to make it the most robust defensive structure in Romania.
In the 1950’s, during the communist era, Fagaras Fortress became a prison for political dissidents. Today, it serves as the Fagaras County Museum, exhibiting an array of artifacts ranging from Roman to medieval.
