Overview

Covasna is a county of Romania, in eastern Transylvania, with the county seat at Sfantu Gheorghe

Covasna, as a permanent balneoclimate resort in Covasna county, at an altitude of 550-600m it is known for its natural mineral waters and mofettas

The official nickname of Covasna County is the Land of Mansions.

Besides sounding absolutely regal and badass, this name is well earned – there’s almost 200 mansions/castles clustered in this small county, many of which have been given new life as swishy boutique hotels and intriguing museums about local life.

In Covasna, those who enjoy museums have plenty of opportunities to museum hop and learn more about local culture and history.

Both the Museum of Transylvanian Life in Micloșoara and the Székely National Museum in the capital, Sfântu Gheorghe (Saint George) were really interesting visits for me.

That said, some of the best moments of the trip revolved around cultural learning on a much more personal level, from meeting local artisans to travelling with local guides.

Get in

The national roads DN11 (Brasov – Bacau – for those coming from Bucharest, from the west or from Moldavia), DN12 (BrasovMiercurea Ciuc – for those coming from northern Transylvania) and DN10 (from Buzau and the Black Sea Coast) are the main entries to the county.
