Sighișoara, Transylvania. The birthplace of Dracula

I love Romania, especially Transylvania area. Its forested valleys and Gothic castles are forever embedded in people’s imaginations. During my trip in this land of dark fairy-tales, Sighișoara is definitely my favourite stop. It’s located deep in the middle of Transylvania. It‘s known as the birthplace of Dracula (Vlad Tepes).

Timisoara in Transylvania, Romania

Timisoara is a colorful and vivid city in Western Romania. It has a history of over 1000 years and the city has the perfect combination of traditional and modern culture. It’s also Romania’s famous university city, making this little city vivid and energetic, featuring a buzzing nightlife.

When I was in Timisoara, people told me it’s often referred as Little Vienna because its beautiful architectures and art activities. Back then I was not that interested in museums and art galleries. But I did notice there were a lot of amazing architectures with different styles: Baroque, Roman Catholic, Serbian Orthodox cathedrals. etc.
