We will start the day with a short drive to Humor Monastery, a small cross-shaped church built here in 1530, and it was dedicated to the Dormition of Virgin. Red hues dominate the exterior frescoes showing scenes from the lives of saints, as well as significant moments from the locals’ lives, such as the wars with the Turks.
Moldovita Monastery is the next stop on our itinerary. The outside frescoes of the church were painted by Toma of Suceava in 1537, and they contain strong nuances of gold and blue. The last judgment covers the entire surface of the western walls, and it includes several other scenes such as the Siege of Constantinople or the Tree of Jesse.
The highlight of the day is Transrarau Highway. With a total length of 28 kilometers (17 miles), it is known as the Treasury Road. You will be amazed by its curves and the scenery. It goes up to 1400 meters in altitude, and from there we will have a hike through the Rarau Mountains. We will have the chance to see the rock formations that emerged from the ground millions of years in order to give birth to these mountains.
After we filled our lungs with fresh air its time for lunch. Today will try the fish in Pojorata village, at a fish farm.
After the delicious lunch, we will head back to Cluj Napoca where the tour will come to an end.
