Property in Transylvania

Transylvania lies in the centre of Romania, surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains [view map]. It is perhaps the most attractive region in Romania home to mountain peaks, wooded valleys and legendary castles (Transylvania served as the backdrop to the Hollywood movie ‘Cold Mountain’).

Transylvania also boasts ski resorts, health spas and a growing interest in property from overseas investors. Encouraged by the selection of Sibiu as the 2007 European city of culture, the region had started to undertake a process of modernization with some property prices starting to rise before the global recession of 2008. Savy property investors will continue to look for longer term investments in this region.

Transylvania is Romania’s greatest tourism asset. Evoking visions inspired by the legend of Dracula, the region offers numerous medieval villages, skiing in the resorts of Poiana, Brasov and Sinaia, and a culture rich with traditional customs and festivals. Key cities include:

  • Cluj-Napoca - the capital and economic centre of the region. Home to 6 state funded universities, the city is a young and vibrant. The local infrastructure is undergoing major improvement with the Bors - Cluj-Napoca - Brasov motorway project eventually to link the Atlantic Ocean to the Black Sea.
  • Oradea – a small city, it is famous for its large open spaces and wide boulevards.
  • Sighisoara – a fascinating city - the last inhabited medieval citadel in Eastern Europe. Built in 1280, many of the original towers and fortifications are still standing.
  • Sibiu - a delightful town, with cobbled streets and pastel coloured houses. Selected as the 2007 European Capital of Culture, the city is currently undergoing enormous gentrification.
