Join me on this interesting tour to learn about Romanian history and the fascinating legends surrounding 2 major attractions: Corvin or Hunyadi Castle, a genuine 15th century Gothic architectural beauty, and Alba Iulia, former capital of the historic province of Transylvania. And while I exercise my storytelling skills you can relax and enjoy the sights of Transylvania!
