The fortified church of Biertan, in Transylvania. Though now officially in Romania, the region has about a thousand years of Hungarian history, too.

On maps, and officially, Transylvania is a region in central and northwestern Romania. But for nearly a thousand years, it was part of Hungary.

This week on “Going Places,” KNKX travel expert Matthew Brumley introduces us to two brothers who are working as merchants in the Grand Market of Budapest.

Their roots are in Transylvania and they tell him about visiting the region and about trying to keep Hungarian traditions alive there.
