Top 2019 events to attend to in Transylvania

Transylvania is more than the setting for what is most likely the most famous horror story in the world. Bram Stoker's Dracula has instilled fear in the bravest of hearts since it was written in 1897. The region offers more though, even if the fame of the book has led many to travel to these parts of the world, hoping to get a glimpse of the Count himself. Perhaps you're thinking about creating a good nest egg for the trip by using Ladbrokes sign up offer or maybe you already have your travel budget in order. Either way it's always good to get some suggestions as to what to do when you reach your destination. Especially if it is the first time you travel to Transylvania.
