Murmur Festival – Fagaras Citadel

– Music travels well

Amongst this beauty and magic lies a fortress that was never conquered. Until now. Considered one of Europe’s largest castle and the second most impressive castle from the entire world (according to Hopper), it is the perfect place for you to visit this summer.

And because travel goes hand in hand with beautiful experiences and emerging music, here is our suggestion: discover beautiful Transylvania through electronic music in a summer festival. Combining local traditions, history and authentic customs with vibrant electronic, deep house and live music, this festival will emerge you in an authentic Transylvanian delight. Appropriately named Murmur (meaning a gentle whisper, both of nature and history), the festival is the perfect place for you to emerge in a summer journey.

So, what are your plans for this summer? From rural villages to medieval places and castles haunted by stories, the occasional vampires and beautiful customs, you can experience them all in Transylvania. And if music runs wild inside your veins, you can have a taste of electronic and live concerts right in the heart of Transylvania, in a castle that unites all it’s beauty.
