Transylvania Open WTA250 is a magical tournament that takes you through the wonderful world of tennis. A part of this magic is made possible by the fect that Cluj-Napoca is the only European city with two WTA licences
Located in the heart of Transylvania in a legendary realm, Cluj-Napoca is a cosmopolitan city where important events happen. The entire land is full of wonderful sights and fascinating history ready to be discovered by anyone who visits it. And the stories about Transylvania and Count Dracula fuel the mysticism surrounding the area.
The second tournament hosted in Cluj-Napoca in 2021 got its name as a homage to this beautiful region. Another reason is that we believe in hard work turning into magic for anyone who is willing to believe. This is how you can break records and reach incredible milestones like two WTA licences in one year for the same city!
