Transylvania via Wizz Air

| 0 Comments

I'm no Goth. Scarey movies aren't my genre. After seeing a few as a youngster quoth this less-than-brave-one, "Nevermore!"

But I have written here more than once that Transylvania holds some appeal and fuels a quest for reliable information on its accessibility. Robert Reid provided no new insights on inclusion in that part of the world but his recent report does reaffirm its appeal:

Most travelers heading to Transylvania envisioning wing-flapping vampires first think of Brasov, the cobbled Saxon town near the so-called Dracula Castle at Bran. Or Sighisoara, where the real Dracula (Vlad Tepes, or Vlad the Impaler) cut his teeth in the 15th century.

But lesser-known Targu Mures is Transylvania's new big gateway and up-and-coming highlight. Budget airline Wizz Air started direct Budapest-Targu Mures service in July (currently $22 each way), making the cool hub of Transylvania more accessible to all of Europe.

Targu Mures' location couldn't be better.
