Odorheiu Secuiesc (Székelyudvarhely)

A small, picturesque city set in the rural hills of eastern Transylvania's Harghita County, Odorheiu Secuiesc (Székelyudvarhely - "Place of the Székely Court" - in Hungarian) dates from the early 14th century. Over 95% Hungarian, it is a stronghold of Magyar culture in Romania and an attractive base for exploring the Ţinutul Secuiesc.
