We will reach Biertan, the largest fortified church in Transylvania, built by the Saxons in the sixteenth century and nowadays listed as UNESCO monument. From Biertan, our Romania Tour continues to Copsa Mare, a unique unspoiled Saxon village, and get a glimpse of the local life.
An important highlight of the Classic Romania Tour is Sighișoara, the only inhabited medieval fortress included in UNESCO's World Heritage Sites. Walking up the winding cobblestone streets lined with historic buildings, we reach the Clock Tower, a symbol of the city, atop which you can admire the breathtaking views. The Tower shelters a museum of medieval weapons and a torture chamber. After visiting the tower we’ll climb the three hundred wooden steps up to the Church-on-the-Hill, built in the XIV century.
We’ll visit Saschiz, a small settlement, structured around the hundred-year-old churches. You will enjoy the peace and quiet of the countryside and you will be seduced by the archaic rhythm of life and uniqueness of the place.
Fascinated by life in the countryside and the peaceful atmosphere of this Transylvanian village, His Royal Highness, Prince Charles, restored one of the traditional houses, making it the place where he returns every year in May. Besides admiring the specific architecture of Viscri houses, we’ll visit the small church surrounded by thick walls and the tower where the locals traditionally keep their pickles and preserves.
We will reach Brasov, a city founded by the Teutonic Knights, located at the foothills of the Carpathian Mountains.
Overnight in Brasov.
