Zalan Valley (Zalánpatak, Valea Zălanului) is located north of Brașov in Covasna county.
How to get there?
We offer transfers from all airports and train stations in the region.
Shortest way from Bucharest or Brașov is driving through Sfântu Gheorghe – Olteni – Malnaș sat – Malnaș Băi. The last few kilometres of this itinerary, between Malnaș Băi – Zalánpatak / Valea Zălanului is a dirt road with a steep slope, suitable for 4×4 cars or determined drivers.
Driving from Bucharest or Brașov in a normal car, pass through Braşov in the direction of Târgu Mureş until the E60 main road. In the centre of Feldioara leave the main road and turn right towards Sfântu Gheorghe. Once you have passed through Feldioara, you will cross the railway, followed by a bridge across the Olt River. The next location you arrive to is Hăghig. At the entrance of the village there is a crossing where you turn left in direction of Baraolt.
The villages before Baraolt are: Arini, Belin, Aita Mare, Micloșoara, Căpeni. Cross Baraolt to Biborțeni, then Bățani Mari where you turn right, to Aita Seacă. From here a 6 km gravel road leads to Zalánpatak / Valea Zălanului. Don't turn right at the bridge or at the charcoal burner's site.
Driving from Târgu Mureș or Sighișoara on the road E60 pass through Saschiz – Rupea – Măieruș. At Măieruș you turn left and cross the railroad and bridge towards Belin. The villages you'll have to pass through will be: Belin – Aita Mare – Micloșoara – Căpeni – Baraolt – Biborțeni – Bățanii Mari – Aita Seacă – Valea Zălanului / Zalánpatak.
Please note the maps show another possibility to reach Zalánpatak, through the village of Apaţa, but the bridge across the Olt River is temporarily closed due to poor condition.
The Prince of Wales hopes that his guesthouse will encourage more people to visit Transylvania and in this way promote sustainable development. Proceeds from the guesthouse go to The Prince of Wales Foundation in Romania, member of The Prince's Charities.
