Hello Transylvania was born from the idea of an Italian gone on traveling and reader of the famous Arthur Frommer guides ("How to travel in Europe with 50,000 pounds per day"), American lawyer also gone on traveling and author of several travel guides. Later, he wanted to turn his passion into a job creating a travel agency based in Bucharest to make known to tourists from all over the world the capital Bucharest and all over Romania.
Hello Transylvania is specialized in city tours in Bucharest, one day tour to visit the main attractions of the capital (the Palace of Parliament, the Roman Atheneum, the Palace of the Free Press, the National Theater, the Arc de Triomphe, the University Palace, etc) or tours by night (with dancing, shows in the best clubs and restaurants of Bucharest, folklore evenings etc), one-day tours to the Prahova Valley (to visit the most famous castles in Romania) or around Bucharest (monasteries of Snagov, Mogosoaia, Cernica, Caldarusani) and also tours to discover the places where Dracula lived, traditional areas such as Transylvania, Bucovina, the Danube Delta and others still under the banner of flessibilià ...
Why Bucharest? The Romania capital has become, thanks to the numerous links from from many Italian and European cities, goal of a major influx of tourists and, therefore, the starting point for all other touristic destinations that Romania offers. Bucharest has become the centerpiece of the new dynamic Romania and is presented to the tourists as a city full of cultural attractions (magnificent museums, almost three hundred Orthodox churches, buildings of the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century, the majestic Palace of the People, an old town almost completely restored, theatres and cinema) and also distractive (a host of bars and trendy restaurants, great shops and malls).
Romania in general has the characteristics of a territory whose places have maintained until today, a style of medieval life. Few European countries have a territory so tied to ancient traditions and of this fact there are witnesses all the foreigners who are affected by the simple lifestyle of Romania (both mountain inhabitants as plain or towards the Black Sea and the Danube Delta): characteristic are the horse-drawn wagons for farmers, the open-air markets where farmers gather to sell the products of the earth (taste markedly biological!). Quite often we have witnessed, during the four seasons, craft and agricultural products with traditional methods such as plowing with oxen plough, wheat harvest with the sickle, wagons carrying the colorful beehives sellers of honey, men selling natural juices down the street (elderberry, always organic berries ...), wood working with antique instruments, egg painting handmade by the women of Bucovina and whatnot ... Not to be overlooked the enchanted castles, the fortified saxon churches, the wonderful Danube Delta. A trip to Romania is never trivial and and promptly provides a starting point of reflection on different aspects of life.
