ABOUT THE EVENT / Important information

As we are going through an unprecedented global situation, we decided to have a unique edition of Eurorando, marked by two events: Eurorando 2021, which took place between 26th of September – 03rd of October 2021, as an icebreaker event, and the final event Eurorando 2022 between 11th of September – 18th of September 2022. We came to this decision as we wished to give everyone the opportunity of being part of this experience and get the chance to discover Sibiu – Transylvania, keeping the same Eurorando structure and high standards on each year’s event.
