About this book

Transylvania is a wild, wooded, intensely romantic region, filled with mountains, gorges, myths and legends, dragons, wolves and vampires. This new edition of the hugely popular and personal guide to the romantic Transylvania region covers a whole range of attractions from creepy castles to medieval landscapes populated by vampires, bears and wolves.

Updated throughout with all the practical information that the independent traveller needs, "Transylvania" is an invaluable companion for anyone wanting to explore its breathtakingly beautiful nature reserves, forest reservations and parks, as well as its historic castles, medieval towns and preserved folk villages.

'Mallows brought with her a defined sense of the historical and cultural context of all the places she wrote about.'
- The Oldie

'If there is one word, which characterises this guide to Transylvania it has to be 'enthusiasm'.
- Lucy Mallows

' ... passion for the place shines through the pages of her guide, generating interest and curiosity on the part of the reader'.
- The Budapest Times
