Do you think that everything should make money? I believe it is important that each part of a country makes money for the country. It is important to keep the economy going. Each area, such as Transylvania as a part of Romania, should create jobs and money.
Tourism is a big generator of money, and you can see that money has been spent on the restoration of Bran Castle as an investment in that tourism industry.
So how much money do you think Transylvania makes for Romania? Think about writing, especially about novels and authors and how they generate money that Transylvania gives for Romania.
This might also include Hungary and the Austrian Empire when Transylvania was a part of these territory, but money was not a factor at that time. What was a factor was the power that came with the territory that each country had.
Factoring in tourism and the royal places and information, the GDP Romania generates from Transylvania is about 35% of the GDP of Romania. That is the important thing to know. This makes the fact that Transylvania makes money for the country it is in all the more important.
