Lonely Planet has chosen Transylvania as top region to visit in 2016. The travelling guide stated

“Transylvania is experiencing a renaissance. Cluj-Napoca was dubbed an art city of the future by Phaidon, and Braşov is attracting as many nightlife lovers as vampire hunters. Horses and carts still rattle through the countryside, but they’ll soon share the roads with Uber cabs, as the app-based transport network sets up a new office in Bucharest. Meanwhile, Transylvanian Airbnb listings are slowly amassing, excellent news for fans of social accommodation”

Lonely Planet also pointed out Romania’s rich fauna:6,000 bears, wolves, lynx and the fact that bisons are introduced again in the Carpathian mountains. Moreover, Cluj-Napoca is great for artists as it is seen as one of Europe’s emerging art hubs, Brasov is excellent for skiing and you can visit many fortified churches across Transylvania.

The top ten list includes West Iceland, Valle de Vinales, Friuli’s wine regions,Waiheke Island, Auvergne region, Hawaii, Bavaria, Costa Verde, st. Helena.
