Transylvania is a historical region in the central and northwestern part of Romania. The region attracts tourists with a rich history, a variety of cultures and peoples and an atypical mentality. On this mysterious land there are many famous medieval churches and castles and no less interesting villages with fasteners.
The value of transylvania in the modern world
In the antique era, the territory of the transylvania was the center of the state of Dakov (Dakia). Already then (in the second century BC), the Romans, whose empire bordered with Dakia in the northeast, called this territory for the lane of deciduous trees, "Tom Silvana" sounded in Latin.
Later, the entire upland inside the Carpathians began to be called that. It is believed that modern Romanians are descendants of the Dacians.
Since the XII century, the region was part of the Kingdom of Hungary, and in the XVI century (already becoming a principality) Transylvania was captured by the Ottoman Empire. During the XVII-XIX centuries, the region passed either to Hungary or to Austria, until in 1920 it was transferred to Romania.
Today, Transylvania is the heart of Romania, occupying an elevated plain (the Transylvanian Plateau), along which the tributaries of the Danube flow.
Transylvania borders on:
- Ukraine - in the north;
- Hungary - in the northwest;
- Serbia - in the southwest.
The area of the country is 100230 sq. km. Transylvania receives its main income from developed agriculture, winemaking, mining, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, and tourism. Historically, the core of Transylvania included 9 counties (districts). However, since 1919 the region has included 16 counties.
A Romanian visa is required to visit the country, visiting the area with a Schengen visa is acceptable. At the same time, it is impossible to enter the Schengen country with a Romanian visa. There are several ways to get from the Russian capital to Transylvania.

Transylvania is located in Romania, but its unique location, rich history and the multinational population allocate the area against the background of other territory of the country.
Transylvania surrounds the chains of the Carpathian mountains whose branches are spreading inside the region. This, coupled with a high location of the plateau above sea level, causes the severity of the local, moderate continental climate.
The winter here is long, from the middle of the autumn in April, the snow lies from December to March (in the mountains - until April). The average low temperature on January is -7 degrees. Spring is warm and short, May is rich in the rain. Summer is soft, lasts from June to August, the average high temperature in July - +24 degrees. In the fall, the temperature decreases to +10 degrees, and the rains are small.

The cities run from 5:30 to 23.00 on weekdays and from 6:00 to 22.00 on weekends.
Tickets for buses, trolley buses and trams are the same, the difference will be only in the number of trips:
- 1 trip - 0.44 euros (during the day) and 0.66 euros (at night) - acquired in the machine;
- 2 trips - 0.88 euros - you can buy in the kiosk;

The temples of St. Bartholomew and Nicholas
These churches are located in Brasov, outside the central district. The appearance of the Church of St. Bartholomew is characteristic of Lutheran churches - a simple white temple with a red roof and clock tower.

Today is the most old city building. St. Nicholas's Church is the oldest Orthodox Temple of Brushov, located in the Romanian Quarter, on Square to Unich, 1 (historic center of the city).
The appearance of the church of the XV century does not cause associations with Orthodoxy - the architectural solution combines the elements of gothic, baroque and the Byzantine style. In the XVIII century, the building was rebuilt and expanded, largely due to the Russian imperial family name. The temple museum you can see gifts made by Elizabeth Petrovna and Catherine II.
The interior decorates many untouched frescoes. For many years, the church was the center of Romanian Orthodoxy, Enlightenment and Topics - there is a unique library, and the Museum of the First Romanian School is located nearby.

The modern appearance of the gate is significantly different from the medieval defensive building - the gate was repeatedly damaged during fires and earthquakes.

They were allowed to enter the city only through the Gate of Catherine at a certain time.
