Sibiu – Biertan – Sighisoara – Sibiu

Biertan Fortress
Biertan Fortress

The Saxon villages in South Transylvania were built hundreds of years ago when the Saxons arrived in these areas.

Our tour suggests a trip in this picturesque area. We’ll discover a wonderful heritage, old Saxon communities, architectural patrimony and such a diversified landscape.

Of course, we’ll also talk about Vlad Tepes/ Dracula. It is said that he was born in Sighisoara. Many and mysterious are the legends linked to the frightening prince, but all of these are more enjoyable when told up on the fortress or even on the alleys of the graveyard…

*As options, we could visit the fortified churches in Malancrav, Alma Vii, Mosna, Saschiz, Axente Sever, Viscri or the little old town, Medias.

 

Sibiu – Bran – Brasov – Sibiu

Bran Castle
Bran Castle

Brasov is one of the most beautiful cities in Transylvania, former medieval town built in the 13th century .

A walk through the historic area of Braşov is like travelling in time. We shall visit the old defensive walls, the Weavers’ Bastion, the Graft bastion, the Blacksmiths’ tower, the Black and the White Tower, the Ecatherina Gate and the Schei Gate. Quite impressive is, of course, the Black Church, the greatest Gothic monument in South-East Europe.

Bran needs no presentation – it is one of the most famous castles in Europe, the place that is always associated to…Dracula. Is it a myth or the reality? Nobody knows exactly…

*As options, we could add to our visit the medieval fortress Rasnov, the stunning Peles Castle, the medieval Fagaras Castle (the best preserved medieval castle in Europe) or the fortified churches Prejmer/ Harman.

 

 

 

Sibiu –  Transfagarasan Road –  Balea Lake

Transfagarasan Road
Transfagarasan Road

One of the greatest places to visit in Romania is, definitely, the Transfagarasan road. It was built in the ’70s, during Communism, at the highest altitude in Romania, in the heart of the Carpathians (at about 2000 m altitude). The road was built with so many life sacrifices, initially being a military strategic road. Today it is considered one of the most spectacular roads in the world.

In September 2009, the British television show Top Gear shoot a TV show along the road. TV host Jeremy Clarkson claimed the Transfagarasan as “the best road in the world”.

*As extra visits, we can add the Poienari fortress, the former Cistercian Abbey or the Fagaras Castle.

 

Sibiu – Corvini Castle – Alba Iulia – Sibiu

Corvini Castle
Corvini Castle

The tour includes a visit at one of the most beautiful and mysterious castles in Romania – the Corvin Castle. It is, probably, one of the most stunning medieval castles in Europe, built in the 15th century.

Built in a Renaissance-Gothic, the castle is a large and imposing structure with tall towers, bulwarks, an inner courtyard, colored roof and a myriad windows and balconies adorned with stone carvings.

On our way back, we’ll have a tour in Alba Iulia. Alba Iulia is like an open book and each chapter represents a new, fascinating story. The first fortress was built here about 2000 years ago and, ever since, it remained a symbol of Transylvania and Romania.

*As options to our tour, we can add Sarmisegetusa ruis, Deva Fortress, Densus old stone church and the Calnic Saxon fortress. 

 

Sibiu – Marginimea Sibiului  area
Sibiu, the essence of Transylvania

Not far from Sibiu, at the bottom of the Carpathian Mountains, there lays a picturesque area called Marginimea Sibiului. 18 traditional Romanian villages form this idyllic area.

This tour is perfect for those who do not have time enough to visit the county of Sibiu but are interested in culture, history and our daily life. As our region is famous for its multiculturalism, this tour will combine the two elements: Saxon and Romanian. In Cristian we’ll visit a beautiful fortified church (in the Bacon Tower, we’ll taste some delicious snacks) and we’ll learn more about the “town of storks”. In Sibiel we’ll visit the Icon Glass Museum and we’ll learn more about this craft. In Cisnadioara we’ll climb up on the Michelsberg hill to visit the old fortress and have a great view of the surroundings. In Cisnadie we’ll visit a Lutheran Church and the first tower with a lightning rod in Transylvania.
