Transylvania. The name itself is enough to send an icy chill down the spine of even the most fearless adventurer. Now imagine being there, in person, when the clock clangs midnight on Halloween! At odds with its creeptacular reputation, Romania ranks as one of Europes most charming and underexplored regions, beguiling visitors with its stunning Gothic architecture, enveloping forests, and friendly people. But as idyllic as it is by day, the real fun happens at night particularly Halloween, when well treat you to a costume party in an authentic castle. Think youre not afraid of the dark? You will be.
