What is Transylvania?

The name for Transylvania is

Erdély in Hungarian,
Ardeal in Romanian,
Erdel in Turkish,
and Siebenbürgen in German.

To learn more about Transylvania,
there are two castles you can visit:
The first is the Dracula Castle in Romania,
but it's a fake, a tourist trap.
The much preferred and recommended one is
Castle Horneck in Gundelsheim (Germany) .

Gundelsheim is famous for its Sauerkraut
and its Transylvanian Saxon Museum.
