Transylvania and Romania have a growing economy at the moment. However it should be noted that there was only one way to go after the fall of communism. The economy still relies strongly on the services sector in Romania.
In particular this is true when it comes to tourism in Romania, and this has an effect on Transylvania. Most people come to Transylvania to see its ancient castles. One of them is the well-known Bran Castle, but another is Hunyad Castle that, like Bran Castle, was restored in the last few years.
Chances are that this story is only a legend but the part says Vlad Tepes III was disposed is true. It certainly makes a good tourist story.
The castle was built in 1307, and it became the property of Johann Hunyadi later, and from him it got its name. This is one of many castles in Transylvania and Romania which tourists can go and visit.
Castles like this one have helped to build the tourism industry and it seems that European visitors enjoy the sites of Transylvania a lot. Bran Castle and Hunyad Castle both rank high on the list of places tourists frequently visit in Transylvania.
Tourism creates much needed jobs and capital in Transylvania, which generates about 35% of Romania's GDP. Transylvania's castles play a large part in this role of GDP producer.
