The Galaxy of Transylvania

While on my recent mammoth road trip across Europe, I drove through Transylvania in Romania.
Contrary to popular belief, there weren't any vampires, sweet transsexuals or Sylvanian Families (not that I remember encountering, anyway), but I will acknowledge that there are a number of noteworthy places in the region.
One such example is Turda, which definitely lives up to its name and looks like a really shitty little town.
At one point, I also fancied taking a detour, but having realised that leaving the pot-holed single-carriageway main route would probably add an extra day to the trek east, I had to make do with childishly giggling at the two signs, one above the other, indicating the way to both Cunta and Spring.
