Transylvania is located in central Hungary. It is known for its historic castles, fortified villages, and churches, which are include in two UNESCO World Heritage Sites

One of these is Transylvania’s villages and with their fortified churches. The seven villages inscribed, founded by the Transylvanian Saxons, are are dominated by their fortified churches, which illustrate building styles from the 13th to the 16th century.

The other is the historic center of Sighişoara.  Founded by German craftsmen and merchants known as the Saxons of Transylvania, Sighişoara is a fine example of a small, fortified medieval town which played an important strategic and commercial role on the fringes of central Europe for several centuries.

Transylvania is also home to Bran Castle, commonly (but erroneously) known as “Dracula’s Castle.”

Overall Atmosphere: Combination
Combination Atmosphere destinations combine elements of both cultural and natural destinations, where this combination is itself essential to the travel experience. Common examples are Archaeological Sites (where culture is usually experienced outdoors), Scenic Local Markets (where indigenous cultures interact outdoors), Hotsprings and Vineyard Areas (where nature provides the raw materials but humans create the surroundings), and Unique Cultural Landscapes (where humans and nature interact in innovative ways, as in the elaborate rice terracing systems of Asia).

Combination Interests typically fall somewhere in the middle of the three types of primary interests in terms of
(a) how climate-dependent they are
(b) how accessible and physically demanding they are.
Featuring both cultural and natural attractions.
