Hey! Thank you for visiting my page. My name is Florin I am a passionate, optimistic and dedicated travel guide. I graduated in history in the beautiful city of Cluj-Napoca, the unofficial capital of Transylvania. I also volunteer as mountain rescuer in the Apuseni Mts. Natural Park. I traveled to different European countries and lived abroad in countries such as Spain or Greece. By meeting and understanding different nationalities and cultures, I have learned that the identity of a country, expressed by history, traditions, legends or superstitions, is the most important thing to be valued and promoted at the same time. Let me provide you a local perspective and an unforgettable travel experience in Transylvania.

Florin was a fantastic guide. He was very knowledgeable about all the locations we visited. I especially enjoyed the salt mine. We had an unexpected event come up and Florin was cool under pressure. I would absolutely recommend Florin as a guide for you.
