Here’s why you should spend your autumn in Transylvania!

Transylvania has a lot of beautiful landscapes, but during fall it looks like an impressive fairytale land. Or like a perfect wallpaper.

No matter if you plan a week or just 3 (three) days trip to Transylvania, you will see why fall is a good season!

And this article will showcase our favorite destinations to visit during autumn in Transylvania: mountains, castles, rural areas, deep valleys, and memories to keep forever.

1. Transfagarsan

The Transfagarasan Highway is also known as the Transylvanian Alps’. And is the most amazing road you will see: it is a 90km paved mountain road crossing the southern section of the Carpathian Mountains of Romania. 

There are not enough words to describe this rare view and type of road, but we can assure you that you will love its fall colors and view and the beautiful glacier crater lake nearby!

2. Dracula’s Castle and Brasov city

Autumn is a colored season, but it is the Halloween and spicy pumpkin latte season as well.

While the vampires may wander around for their prey, we cannot promise you any legendary meeting with them; But we can definitely assure you a visit in the famous Dracula’s Castle, a walk around the mountains and small villages for unforgettable landscapes and an amazing autumn foliage.

After a castle visit, a stop in the heart of Transylvania, Brasov, is much needed and appreciated!

3. Balvanyos

Balvanyos is a stunning area with a spa resort that lies at an altitude of 840–950 m close to the ruins of the 11th century Balvanyos Citadel and it has hydrothermal and volcanic features.

The spa has been known for its health properties for centuries but has only been commercially exploited as a spa since 1938.

You can easily have a good time in this spot of tranquillity surrounded by the mountains and forests, and its amazing autumnal colors all around!
