Cluj-Napoca where Transylvania College resides is in the western region of Transylvania tracing its origins back to the Dacian settlement of Napuca in the 2-nd century A.D. With one of the most vibrant economies in the country and a population of around 330,000, Cluj, is today a vibrant cultural and educational city. The six state and several private universities located here also make Cluj Napoca the city with the largest percentage of student population in Romania.
As part of the catalyst you will visit either the beautiful Băișoara or Sânnicoară.
The Băișoara is situated at 60 km from the city, in a beautiful mountain area. Mountain of Baisoara is developing from a beautiful and full of traditions mountain village into a touristic resort. This is who the Transylvania students ran their project with. The team identified the need to raise awareness related to this traditional heritage and encourage the young generation of people in the region to go back to their roots, be proud and do not let them fade and be forgotten.
This year they are expanding and enriching their project with 2 more villages, one of them being Sânnicoară – a village situated in the proximity of Cluj, but which has not lost the traditions. There is a group of support for keeping the customs alive, for educating the young generation to explore and value our roots. Our project aims to provide books and reading activities for the youngest, but in the spirit of the old village gatherings, with traditional stories and old songs while working together. We will also give them financial support for extending and enriching their village museum.
