Transylvania, Romania


The reputed home of Count Dracula, Transylvania is a large region covering much of northwestern Romania.  Unlike some of the country's other regions, Transylvania was not part of the country when modern Romania was created in the 19th century.  Rather, it was part of the Austro-Hungarian Empire, electing to join Romania after World War I.  Contributor Alexgaflig used a drone to create a marvelous portrait of this magical land, situated on a plateau surrounded by the Carpathian Mountains.
