Transylvania - The Land of Fairy Tales
Transylvania - its name derives from a Latin expression meaning the land beyond the forest - is a
unique place, home to nearly two hundred villages with fortified churches, built by German craftsmen and
merchants known as Saxons, between the 13 and 15 centuries. Having to withstand constant invaders, the
villages were fortified with defense walls, having the capacity to shelter a large number of people. Seven of
these fortified churches were designated by UNESCO as World Heritage Sites.
