About The Via Transilvanica
The Via Transilvanica is a new long-distance trail that crosses the whole of Romania from Putna (near the Ukraine border) to Drobeta-Turnu Severin (near the Serbia border). Via Transilvanica still isn’t fully finished, but right now, about 3/4 of the total trail has been finished and opened to the public. It’s a really great hike if you’re looking for a long-distance hike in a very remote area because Romania has vast amounts of untouched wilderness. That’s why it’s considered a fairly difficult trail, especially if you’ll be hiking alone, due to many shepherd dogs, bears, and other wild animals.
