So, in my mind yes, there are many points people need to learn about Transylvania.
Transylvania is a part of the country of Romania, and to compare it to anything would be to compare it to say a state or a province of another country. The population is about as large as some states in the United States. The size is also comparable to a smaller country in Europe, but it is a part of Europe, like Romania.
There is so much to learn about this land.
