Despite its rich history, culture, landscape and personalities, Transylvania is often associated with Dracula, the film Hotel Transylvania, which takes place in Dracula's castle, or vampires. However, Transylvania is so much more.
Transylvania has a unique culture and history. The land of Transylvania is a melting pot of many peoples and has produced great personalities such as musicians, poets, scientists as well as Olympic champions. However, it is not only rich in culture, history and personalities, but also in a picturesque landscape, which is home to a great treasure of raw materials.
