Where to eat
Transylvanian food is hearty and stick-to-your ribs fare. Try the Etno Bar, where ancient Transylvanian farming artefacts adorn the walls for a rustic vibe.
We also ate at Casa Maramureseana in Cluj Napoca, a traditional restaurant with classic food such as sarmale, which are cabbage leaves stuffed with rice, herbs and meat and cozonac, a sweet bread flavoured with nuts.
Transylvanians are generous and will often offer you a shot of tuica, a plum brandy which is highly alcoholic and will knock your socks off (but warm you after a cold day in the haunted woods!)
