The purpose of this paper is to present an analysis of the sustainable development of rural communities with a rich tourism potential in Transylvania, an important region that is well known for its culture, traditions and values. Rural well-being offers a sustainable approach to healthy lifestyles that are based on a balance of many complex components including social, economic, and environmental issues. This paper is based on the research of secondary sources namely data accessed online provided by the Institute of Statistics, the Ministry of Tourism, the Ministry of Agriculture and similar websites as well as on a primary research that targeted 33 mayoralties of the localities with a rich tourist potential in Transylvania. Under this paper, we analyse the current state of sustainable development of the region from the natural-ecological, social, economic, and cultural perspective. We also identified a few examples of good practice and ideas for the future development of the localities with a rich tourist potential.
