TRANSYLVANIA PHOTOGRAPHY TOUR/WORKSHOP

Landscape and Culture Photography Tour

Lying on the north-west of Romania with its many fortified churches and medieval landscapes, Transylvania offers much more then the story of Dracula.

Surrounded by jagged peaks of East Carpathian Mountains curving from north east to south, and bordered with Apuseni Mountains (West Carpathian Mountains) glazing like a hood towards north, Transylvania is a region knows with its medieval landscapes and ancient stories.

With its dense and ancient forests and rolling green hills, Transylvania is perhaps one of the very few regions in Europe with an unspoiled medieval landscape that offers unique opportunities to photographers and photography lovers whether you are interested in landscape photography or people photographs.
