New York Times published the list of 52 places to visit in 2020. Among them, on the 50th position, the Transylvanian Alps, as they call the the Southern Carpathian mountains, are recommended by the New York Times specialist as a place “to experience a piece of real wilderness without having to go to the ends of the Earth“.
It is not the first time New York Times praises Romania as a marvelous destination to travel to. This time the journalists talk about the wild life and about the old growth European primary forests, out of which 65% are in Romania. In the same time, the post reminds its readers about the efforts for nature conservation, some of these efforts being undertake by Prince Charles of Great Britain.
As compared to other travel destinations from Romania, “Transylvanian Alps” are within reach, as the tourists can drive on Transfagarasan, once called by Jeremy Clarkson of BBC Top Gear “the best road in the world”.
Transylvanian Alps are something Romanians can be really proud of and which offer them an additional reason to praise their country.
