English Székely Land - Székely Land or Szekler Land refers to the territories inhabited mainly by the Székely people, a subgroup of the Hungarian people, living in eastern Transylvania. Accordingly to recently scientifical studies Seklers are massively seklerised /maghiarised Romanians (genetical studies published in 2007 în Acta Biologica Hungarica of the Hungarian Academy, and the advanced comparative studies conducted between 2005-2007 by Prof. István Rasko, University of Szeged). The Seklers are living in the valleys and hills of the Eastern Carpathian Mountains, corresponding to the present-day Harghita, Covasna, and parts of Mureş Counties in Romania.
