      Transylvania Beyond is a not for profit organisation dedicated to promoting the region of Transylvania both locally and around the world. Transylvania Beyond is inspired by the centuries-old name of the region: “trans-silva” means “beyond the forest” in Latin. In modern times, Transylvania has always been positioned somewhere between myth and reality.   Transylvania means 'the land beyond the forest.'
