Transylvania has become a well-known name and everyone knew it was in Romania. This was due to the story of Dracula, to the stories of the actual so-called Dracula Vlad the Impaler and of course, due to all the Hollywood movies about the blood-sucking demon.

Instead, try roaming about Translyvania and you could meet up with plenty of ghostly apparitions and you might even get scared to death.
