Welcome to Southwest Transylvania

But on southwest Transylvania’s timeline, these castles are youngsters. The gold-rich hills have been mined for nearly 2000 years (you can admire glistening remnants at the gold museum in Brad), and ancient Dacian civilisation has left traces at mysterious Sarmizegetusa Regia. Contemplate this vast history among southwest Transylvania’s most enduring features, the Retezat Mountains, where hiking trails climb to lofty glacial lakes.
