One of Europe's last medieval landscapes

His Majesty saw the importance of raising awareness of this beautiful landscape, rich in meadows, with flora that is extremely rare and vulnerable to changes in farming methods. The Transylvania Florilegium is a means of drawing wider attention to an environment described as ‘one of Europe’s last medieval landscapes’.


Over six years in the making

In a project that took over six years, and has been contributed to by a team of the world’s finest botanical artists, 124 botanical illustrations were completed; the species recorded include campanula, crocus, gentian, geranium, hepatica, hellebore, iris and orchids.
