Besides the historic name of "Trei-Scaune" ("Three-Seats"), Covasna County is also known as the Land of Mansions.

Covasna County has more than 160 mansions and a few modest castles that used to belong to families with noble rank. Bicfalău is "the most mansion concentrated village" - 36 mansions adorn the streets here most of the 17th century, each retaining valuable architectural elements worthy of preservation and appreciation.

Even though a lot of them have totally disappeared in the 20th century, Covasna remains the Land of Mansions, thanks to its extremely valuable architectural patrimony. Some mansions have been restored and transformed into accommodations such as Daniel Castle from Tălişoara or Benke Mansion from Moacşa, others function as a museum, such as the Kálnoky Castle in Micloşoara, which hosts the Museum of Transylvanian Life.

We invite you to discover our castles and mansions and explore the secrets of these great edifices!
