A place for your tastebuds

Music travels well

Amongst this beauty and magic lies a fortress that was never conquered. Until now. Considered one of Europe’s largest castle and the second most impressive castle from the entire world (according to Hopper), it is the perfect place for you to visit this summer. And because travel goes hand in hand with beautiful experiences and emerging music, here is our suggestion: discover beautiful Transylvania through electronic music in a summer festival. Combining local traditions, history and authentic customs with vibrant electronic, deep house and live music, this festival will emerge you in an authentic Transylvanian delight. Appropriately named Murmur (meaning a gentle whisper, both of nature and history), the festival is the perfect place for you to emerge in a summer journey. Here are 4 reasons:

1.The citadel was once a military post, a prison (not lacking inventive ways of torture), a place of governing and balls. Its massive walls, 4 towers and the river that surrounds it are filled with authentic stories, traditions and myths. And let’s not forget about the scenery which is unique all year long.
