9 daysThere is no doubt that Transylvania gathers cultural and historical heritage from Romanian, German and Hungarian people, creating a unique mix of cities, traditions, crafts and lifestyles. But let’s not forget about landscapes, some of them found only here: gorges created by whirling rivers, high plateaus sprinkled with sheep and cows that will provide you milk or other natural products, hills caressed by the gentle sun and many others!
We especially designed this tour for persons with special needs and we are sure that this is a very nice and warm special tour!
