Romania’s Transylvania region is again mentioned among the top holiday destinations for 2016, this time by CNN.
The publication has made a list of 16 destinations to visit in the upcoming year, and Romania is among them, with its well-known Danube Delta and Transylvania region.
“Central Romania is engulfed in the soaring Carpathian mountain range filled with green groves and ski and hiking trails for adventure-heads,” the travel journalist writes in the CNN story.
