For centuries the capital of Transylvania, Alba Iulia (German: Karlsburg, Carlsburg or Weißenburg, Hungarian: Gyulafehérvár, Latin: Apulum in the Roman period) is located at the crossroads of the Apuseni Mountains with the Transylvanian Alps and the Transylvanian Plateau.
Alba location allows visits to the areas of ancient gold mining and traditional Romanian villages of the Apuseni Mountains, or that of the Saxon towns, villages, and fortified churches on the Târnava Valley, and not least to the magnificent landscapes of the Transylvanian Alps. This is the area with the richest and most diverse cultural heritage (from Prehistory to Modern times) in Transylvania.
