The Hungarian airline Wizz Air has just launched a new twice-weekly service from Berlin Schönefeld to Cluj-Napoca in Romania. The flight departs from Berlin Schönefeld every Wednesday and Sunday at 13:25 and flies direct to Dracula’s home country. The return flight is on the same day at 12:00 and lands in Berlin at 12:55. The flight time is just under two hours. Wizz air is operating the service with a modern Airbus A320. Since March, the airline has been flying from Berlin to Skopje (Macedonia), and on 23 September it will be adding a service to Kutaisi (Georgia).
Cluj-Napoca is a charming city in western Transylvania. Situated on the Somesul Mic River (Little Somesh), Cluj-Napoca has roughly 320,000 inhabitants, making it the second-largest city in Romania. It is one of the most important cultural, business and academic centres in the country. The almost entirely preserved historical city centre is studded with beautiful architecture. The botanical gardens, the city park (Parcul Central) and the central cemetery with its magnificent memorials and tombstones are tranquil places to escape the bustle of the city. Cluj-Napoca was European Youth Capital in 2015 and has launched a bid to become European Capital of Culture in 2021.
Transylvania, which lies between Central and Southeast Europe, is a popular destination for hikers and climbers. The densely wooded slopes of the Carpathian Mountains surround the region, and the mountains and their foothills give the region its unique character. This pristine landscape has a unique beauty. Picturesque villages and towns, many of which have well-preserved fortified churches and walls, and numerous romantic castles attract many tourists every year.
A trip to Transylvania is an absolute must for all Dracula fans. Count Vlad III Draculea who lived here in the 15th century is believed to have inspired the Irish author Bram Stoker to write his famous book, Dracula.
