Of all the historical provinces of today’s Romania, Transylvania is arguably the most diverse in terms of ethnic and even religious composition, and since that has been a fact of life for centuries, it makes sense that such diversity is also reflected in its rich cultural heritage, including arts, crafts, and cuisine, to name but a few. Understandably, cuisine attracts most of the attention.
