Transylvania (Hungarian: Erdély, German: Siebenbürgen or Transsilvanien, Latin: Transsilvania or Transsylvania) is a historical region which is located in central Romania.
Bound on the east and south by its natural borders, the Carpathian mountain range, historical Transylvania extended westward to the Apuseni Mountains. The term sometimes encompasses not only Transylvania proper, but also parts of the historical regions of Crișana and Maramureș, and occasionally the Romanian part of Banat.
The Western world commonly associates Transylvania with vampires, because of the influence of Bram Stoker's novel Dracula and its many film adaptations
