There were times in this land when mystical creatures crawled out of dark places. Then, the heroes faced them. It is said that once every 500 years those heroes will rise again. That time has come!
The prophecy says: "35 brave warriors of the light will come again to defeat the darkness. They will go through great challanges to prepare for the final battle: learning about the culture, mining the gold mines, testing their bravery in the adventure park, visiting the trolls in the salt mines and all the great kings' castles. But apart of these there will be the night gatherings, full of pure romanian wine and music of the ancestors."
It is destiny you read these words! Join the story, show your heroism and your legendary party moves, while being surrounded by the Carpathian paradise and its ancient tales. You will walk the path of old through the lands of Cluj-Napoca, Rosia Montana, Hunedoara, Sibiu and Brasov.
So, tell me, hero: What are you waiting for?
Breaking stereotypes and Romanian tradition
Cluj-Napoca"Cluj-Napoca, the unofficial capital of Transylvania and the European Youth Capital in 2015, is the gathering point of heroes who want to change the world. The city can bewitch you in no time with its baroque architecture, bohemian café society and vibrant nightlife. There are over 100.000 brave students living here because of the city’s well-known universities and opportunities."
Rosia Montana"A legacy from Roman Empire, Rosia Montana shelters the largest precious metal deposits in Europe. Hiding over 100 kilometers of unique roman and medieval galleries and aproximately 314 tons of gold, Rosia Montana projects the core of Roman history. In 2009, Rosia Montana entered the Guinness Book of World Records with the biggest number of gold seekers. Also, starting 2016 it is a part of UNESCO Heritage Site."
Hunedoara"Hunedoara was renamed Iron Fair from the time when the industry was linked with the mining activity in the region. There, from ancient times, metals and coal have been exploited and it represented a major trading site in the region. The city includes the most important Gothic-style secular building in Transylvania: the Hunyad Castle, which is closely connected with the Hunyadi family. Near by, Sarmizegetusa was the capital and the most important military, religious and political centre of the Dacians prior to the wars with the Roman Empire."
Sibiu"Designated European Capital of Culture in 2007, Sibiu retains the grandeur of its earlier days when rich and powerful guilds dominated regional trade. The medieval citadel, the old city center lined with colorful houses on cobblestone streets, the famous Bridge of Lies and the chic cafés, they all make Sibiu one of the most fascinating and romantic medieval cities in Romania."
Brasov"Fringed by the peaks of the Carpathian Mountains and filled with gothic, baroque and renaissance architecture, the medieval city of Brasov provides a great introduction to the region. It is closely linked to Bran Castle, known for the Dracula myth, and Peles Castle, considered to be one of the most beautiful castles in Europe."
