The Transylvania Trust is a registered charity, set up by conservation professionals and volunteers in 1996. Our principal aim is to conserve and promote Transylvania's rich and diverse built heritage, to encourage society to be receptive towards the built environment. The Trust is active in all fields of conservation: data recording, inventory, survey, building restoration, maintenance, training, and also scientific research.
