Planning to spend some days in Romania? Are you curious why Prince Charles is so in love with our country? We have the best solution for you! We have designed a fabulous Transylvania Tour crossing the middle of Romania which will give you the opportunity to discover virgin landscapes, traditional ancestry villages and also a bit of our culture and history. The tour will give you the opportunity to analyze different periods of time and how things changed from century to century.
Point of departure: Bucharest (or city of arrival) – First destination: Sighisoara, the best preserved early middle age citadel in Europe and considered World Cultural Heritage.
During the day we will have a lunch stop, that will be settled according to your desires.
On our way to Sighisoara we will be visiting some fortified churches and citadels and also the famous Viscri, the place where Prince Charles has a vacation home.
First stop – Harman and Prejmer fortified churches near Brasov. Harman fortress church remains nearly unchanged, keeping its original 12th-14th century state. Prejmer fortified church is part of the UNESCO world heritage. It’s fortress dating back over 800 years when built by the Teutonic Knights.
After that, there will be a short visit at Rupea Citadel – 13th Century recently renovated medieval citadel.
We continue the day with Viscri, the place where Prince Charles of Wales has a vacation home. In the Saxon village we will visit the oldest fortified church in Transylvania, designated World Heritage Site and also some authentic houses.
Accommodation in Sighisoara where we will admire the beautiful landscapes, breath the clean air of Transylvania, enjoy a traditional dinner and end the night with a glass of Romanian tuica, rachiu or wine.
The wakeup call will be in the morning, when we’ll discover Sighisoara: Clock Tower, The Citadel Walls, Wooden covered staircase, The church on the hill, Vlad Dracul`s Home and Venetian Home. Walk through the old cobbled streets of the impressive medieval citadel, a citadel which dates from the 14th century and still remains inhabited until nowadays.
We will then be heading towards Sibiu, former European Cultural Capital, but not before visiting Biertan.
