A new Disney theme park is being built in Transylvian land near the town of Krumov, about 10 miles south of the capital.
The $4 billion resort is expected to open in 2019.
The hotel is part of the new Resort Transylvaniana, or Resort Transylvania, project.
It’s being built at the site of the former Krumova Hotel, which was sold to Disney for $1.6 billion in 2016.
The resort will include the Krumo hotel, a spa, dining, and retail space.
It’s a big project for Transylvia.
About 20 percent of the region’s land is privately owned, but about half of the population is employed in the construction industry.
“The construction industry is important in Transyltania,” Transylvas governor Andrej Gajic said.
“The construction of the hotel will bring more jobs to the region and will also make a lot of money for Transylvania.”
Construction on the hotel began in 2015.
The hotel is expected open by 2020.
The resort is being paid for with a $3.6 million federal grant.
Disney announced the hotel in March 2019.
