About Location

Arad, the capital and base of Arad County, is situated in the western extremity of Transylvania. The city could be considered as a tourist stopover if you are coming to Romania from Hungary, or leaving the country. But not as a base as it lacks the same interest as other Transylvanian cities. Arad is one of the most prosperous cities in Romania, with a high income per capita.
