Other than looking like a fairytale, there is a lot of magic & mysticism surrounding the ancient area of Transylvania. Not only stories of Dracula and the Pied Piper, but I dare say Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks & the Three Bears amongst others originated in these areas. We hear of wolves, lynxes & bears in the forests: howling on a winters night, or dew sipped from the hollow of a bear’s footprint, ancient forests of tree nymphs and wood sprites.
It has not changed much since medieval times, with the background sounds of the clip clop of horses, church bells tolling, bees humming, cuckoos and woodpeckers. The occasional all-purpose tractors are the only motor noise!
