If you want to visit Transylvania in a slow pace, a tourist train is set to travel at the end of August through Transylvania.

Visitors will be able to visit Brasov, Sighisoara, Sibiu and Fagaras. The train is called Transylvania train and it is reserved only for tourists. The tour starts in Brasov and stops for a few days in Medias and Sibiu.

The tour is meant to introduce tourists into the atmosphere of Transylvanian traditions and experiences. The tour has a flexible schedule and has plenty of activities, such as wine tasting, workshops, live demonstrations and picnics.

The train has a bar-bistro and the rest of the wagons have chairs and tables. There are 180 places available.

Does the cover tell the story?

Din Liverpool în Carpati

Book cover, Din Liverpool in Carpati, Arabella McIntyre-Brown, Transilvania

So here it is – the book cover! Something a little different from the usual cover design in Romania? A huge thank you to Andra Penescu for such a bright and cheery statement of the book’s content.

I’m working on the back cover blurb, with the help of all your valuable feedback, so soon you’ll have both sides of the argument…

For now – what do you think, book clan? Imagine the book sitting on a shelf amongst other titles – would this cover make you curious enough to pick it up?

All about my life in Magura – how and why I came here, and why I’ve stayed – the book tells the story of why an English woman left a world-famous city for a remote mountain village in Romania.
