Focusing on the picturesque Transylvania, we are visiting & taking photos in the cities and villages founded by the german settlers here. Our photographer will teach you tips & tricks to caption the best moments of our trip.

 


Day 1: Arrival in Sibiu

Arrival in Sibiu and transfer to the hotel. Dinner and accommodation in Sibiu.

 

Day 2: Sibiu and Surroundings

Photography learning course (50min).

During our city tour in Sibiu we see the Old Town, namely the city church, the Upper City and the Lower City; we also see the historic buildings which create that special medieval atmosphere and a surprisingly unique orthodox cathedral. Afterwards, we go to Sibiel where we can visit the Museum of Icons on Glass with the largest exposition of icons on glass in Transylvania. We suggest you have dinner here. The meal will consist of traditional Romanian dishes. In the evening, we return to Sibiu. Accommodation in Sibiu.

 

Day 3: Sibiu – Sighisoara

Photography learning course (50min).

Today, we drive through the picturesque Hârtibaciu Valley, an area forgotten by mass tourism. We visit a small traditional house in the village of Alțâna. Then, we visit the fortified church in Biertan that served as Bishops’ residence for more than 300 years. The fortified church stands under the protection of the UNESCO World Heritage list. Afterwards, we drive to Sighișoara on the ”Road of the fortified churches”. Dinner in a restaurant in Sighișoara and accommodation in a hotel in Sighișoara.

 

Day 4: Sighișoara – Viscri – Brașov

Photography learning course (50min).

We start our day with a city tour in Sighișoara. We visit the city and see the main touristic objectives of the so-called ”Pearl of Transylvania”: the Clock Tower, the Covered Staircase and Dracula’s birth house. Afterwards, we drive to Viscri where we find a village that is being restored. The project is sponsored by the Mihai Eminescu Trust, a foundation dedicated to the conservation and regeneration of villages and communes in Transylvania and Maramureș. In the project are also included other villages where young people are trying to bring back to life old buildings. As royal patron of the Trust, Prince Charles himself came to Transylvania on numerous occasions to lend support to this cause. Finally, we drive to Brașov. Dinner and accommodation in a hotel in Brașov.

 

Day 5: Brașov and Surroundings

Photography learning course (50min).

During our tour in Brașov we see the market place and the historic monuments of the city. The main attraction is the Black Church, built in the 14th century in Gothic style. Here, we also find a large collection of Oriental carpets which is quite unusual for a Protestant church. On the South Carpathians mountain pass, we head to Transylvania towards Bran. Here, we visit a grandiose palace where the legendary figure Count Dracula is supposed to have lived for a certain time. Dinner in a restaurant in Brașov and accommodation in a hotel in Brașov.

 

Day 6: Brașov – Sibiu

Photography learning course (50min).

Today, we drive from Brașov along Făgăraș Mountains towards Sibiu.
