Welcome to Transylvania Cam, a site which aims to bring Transylvania closer to you, offering the unique experience of teleporting yourself through live images in the middle of a region full of history and stories. Once the distance is overcome, myths and prejudices disappear, revealing instead a vivid region which deserves to be known in its plentiful essence.

Just one click on the play button or on the galleries with aerial photographs, will bring you in a few seconds to the Union Square of Cluj-Napoca, or in other spectacular places in Transylvania.

This way, through the live images, even if you are thousands of miles away, you become the witness of customs, traditions and of everyday life in Transylvania. Participating at festivals, fairs, flashmobs, public protests, feeling the cool air of foggy mornings full of gothic mystery, or the silence of summer nights, you are witnessing history in the making.

Behind all those moments and emotions we find an outstanding technology without which the virtual travel wouldn’t be possible. Transylvaniacam.com is the first and only project from Romania which benefits of promotion, technical support and counseling from Earthcam – the global leader in the field of transmissions and promoting of live images through webcam.

Also, the partnership with Earthcam enrolled Transylvania on the walk of fame of the most well known sights from the entire world. Thereby, under the zoom of the camera, monuments like Saint Michael Church from Union Square Cluj-Napoca, representative for its gothic architecture, are standing beside the Liberty Statue, the Eiffel Tour or the Sidney Opera House, in the same virtual album. At the same time, cultural events transmitted by Transylvania Cam now become international, being followed by the public worldwide.

So far, our project succeeded to attract hundreds of thousands of visitors from all corners of the world. The fact that after only 7 months it was chosen one of the most interesting 25 places from the entire world, watched via webcam, proved to us that you didn’t arrive here by mistake. Because of this we are motivated to extend the project to other places from Transylvania.

We welcome the collaboration with other projects and initiatives which share the same goal as ours, and we would like to thank through this occasion all our partners and collaborators who shared brand images from Transylvania Cam and honestly mentioned their source (www.transylvaniacam.com).

We would like, as well, to send special thanks to our friends who created a community on our Facebook page, and especially to you, for visiting our site and for sharing its content in the virtual environment – a real support for promoting Transylvania in the world.

Bine ai venit pe Transylvania Cam, un site care si-a propus sa aduca Transilvania mai aproape de tine, oferindu-ti experienta unica de a te teleporta, prin intermediul imaginilor live, in mijlocul unei regiuni incarcate de istorie si poveste. Odata cu eliminarea distantei, dispar miturile si prejudecatile, dezvaluindu-se in locul acestora o regiune plina de viata care merita cunoscuta in adevarata ei esenta.

Un singur click pe butonul play sau pe galeriile cu fotografii aeriene te va duce in cateva secunde in Piata Unirii din Cluj-Napoca sau in alte locuri pitoresti din Transilvania.

Astfel, chiar daca te afli la mii de kilometri departare, prin intermediul imaginilor live, devii martorul obiceiurilor, traditiilor, a vietii de zi cu zi a Transilvaniei. Luand parte la festivaluri, targuri, flashmob-uri sau proteste publice, simtind racoarea diminetilor cetoase pline de mister gotic sau linistea serilor de vara, participi la o istorie in curs de scriere.

In spatele acestor momente si emotii reale sta insa o tehnologie de ultima ora fara de care nu ar fi fost posibila calatoria virtuala. Transylvaniacam.com este primul si singurul proiect din Romania care beneficiaza de promovare, suport tehnic si consiliere din partea Earthcam – liderul global in domeniul transmiterii si promovarii de imagini live prin webcam.

Totodata, parteneriatul cu Earthcam a inscris Transilvania pe un walk of fame al arhicunoscutelor obiective turistice din lume. Astfel, sub zoom-ul camerelor, monumente ca Biserica Sfantul Mihail din Piata Unirii Cluj-Napoca, reprezentativa pentru arhitectura gotica din Transilvania, se alatura Statuii Libertatii, Turnului Eiffel sau Operei din Sydney, in acelasi album virtual cu imagini. In acelasi timp, evenimentele culturale transmise prin Transylvania Cam, urmarite de publicul din intreaga lume, devin internationale.

Pana in prezent, demersul nostru a reusit sa atraga sute de mii de vizitatori din toate colturile lumii. Faptul ca la doar 7 luni de la initiere, proiectul pilot din Cluj-Napoca a fost ales printre primele 25 cele mai interesante locuri din lume, urmarite prin webcam, ne-a demonstrat ca nu ai ajuns aici din intamplare. Suntem astfel motivati sa extindem proiectul si spre alte zone din Transilvania.
