Day 1

For day 1, there are two options to choose from: a wonderful landscape in the Olt valley which is an all-year route option or the Transfăgărașan Pass which is open only during summer.

 

a.) We leave Transylvania behind and discover a beautiful landscape in the Olt valley on our way to the Cozia Monastery. The church is decorated with frescoes from the 14th century in the narthex and with frescoes from the 16th century in the small church. Then, we visit the former capital of Wallachia, Curtea de Argeș, located in the heart of the Carpathians. Here, among episcopal churches and royal churches, we find two of the most important Romanian churches. The construction of the first church in the 14th century reflects Constantinople and its image; the fabulous frescoes date back from the time of the final Byzantine ‘Renaissance’. The beautiful counterpart is the Episcopal Church. Filled with lavish grey-gold-green decorations, the church paintings establish a connection between the stories from One Thousand and One Arabian Nights and the Bible stories. So, it comes as no surprise that Paul of Aleppo considered this church the eighth wonder of the world. Dinner and accommodation in Curtea de Argeș.

b.) Today, we head directly to the highest mountains of the South Carpathians: the Făgăraș Mountains. After leaving behind a mountain road full of twists and turns, we reach the Bâlea glacial lake. After a short hike, we go to Curtea de Argeș, the former capital of Wallachia, which is located in the heart of the Carpathians. Here, among episcopal churches and royal churches, we find two of the most important Romanian churches. The construction of the first church in the 14th century reflects Constantinople and its image; the fabulous frescoes date back from the time of the final Byzantine ‘Renaissance’. The beautiful counterpart is the Episcopal Church. Filled with lavish grey-gold-green decorations, the church paintings establish a connection between the stories from One Thousand and One Arabian Nights and the Bible stories. So, it comes as no surprise that Paul of Aleppo considered this church the eighth wonder of the world. Dinner and accommodation in Curtea de Argeș.

Day 2: Curtea de Argeș – Brașov
Through the South Carpathians mountain pass, we make our way to Bran. Here, we visit the famous Dracula’s Castle where Count Dracula is supposed to have lived for a short time.
We discover the most beautiful part of the Carpathians on our way to Brașov. During our city tour in Brașov we visit the city square and the historic monuments of the city. The main attraction is the Black Church, built in the 14th century in the Gothic style. Here, we also find a large collection of Oriental carpets, which is unusual for a Protestant church. Dinner and accommodation in Brașov.

Day 3: Brașov – Sibiu
In the morning, we visit two of the most beautiful and best preserved fortifications from Transylvania: Prejmer and Hărman. When we return home, we visit the Cârța Cistercian abbey, whose ruins alone are very impressive. Return to Sibiu.
