In rural areas of Transylvania, you might encounter bears or sheepdogs. The chances of encountering a bear in the wild are quite slim, but if it happens, maintain your distance, don't feed them, and be aware of your surroundings. We don't recommend bear-watching as it impacts their natural life. Sheepdogs may bark loudly when you approach, but they're generally not dangerous. It's good to have a stick or something else from nature at hand. Speak softly to the dogs, maintain a confident posture, and calmly move away. Do not hit the dogs or use pepper spray.
