Transylvania Round Trip
- Bus tour
- 3 days
- Perfect for small or middle sized groups
For travelers who might be interested in well-preserved medieval vestiges, Transylvania is, without a doubt, a priority among cultural tourist destinations. The Saxon settlers, craftsmen, and merchants (who came here in the mid-12th century at the invitation of the Hungarian kings) lived mainly in southern and south-eastern Transylvania, leaving an indelible mark on this region. Beautiful romantic medieval towns and citadels, precinct walls, towers, ramparts, bastions, bridges, staircases, narrow streets, vaults, squares, private and public buildings, and many fortified churches were raised in order to protect the town inhabitants from the frequent raids of the Mongols or Turks during the Middle Ages.
Day 1: Sibiu – Cluj-Napoca
In the morning we drive to Alba Iulia, where we visit the Orthodox Cathedral with mosaic images, the Roman-Catholic Church, and the former fortress of the city. In the middle of nature we find the Râmețului Gorge. Here, we visit the Râmeț Monastery and one of the most traditional villages in Transylvania, Remetea. Afterwards, we drive to Cluj.
Day 2: Cluj-Napoca – Sighișoara
Visit of the historic center of Cluj with the Orthodox Cathedral, the opera house, the university, the birthplace of Mathias Corvinus and St. Michael’s cathedral that was built after the Gothic model. We drive to Târgu Mureș, a city widely inhabited by Hungarian people. The city was once a capital city of a kind of Hungarian self-governed region that was dissolved by Ceaușescu in 1967. Here, we can see the ruins of the former star-shaped citadel, the Reformed Church and the Orthodox Church. Afterwards, we drive to Sighișoara where we admire the most beautiful medieval townscape in the country, which is often used as a film set. We visit the Clock Tower, the Church on the Hill, the Citadel, the fortified walls and towers of the town, as well as the birthplace of the Wallachian leader Vlad Dracul, who later became known as Count Dracula in Gothic literature and film. Dinner and accommodation in Sighișoara.
Day 3: Sighișoara – Brașov – Sibiu
In the morning, we start our trip on the ‘road of the fortified churches’ (Feldioara – Rupea) towards Brașov. The German settlers obtained the so-called Golden Charter from King Andrew II in 1244. This was their guarantee for democratic self-government for more than five centuries. In Prejmer and Hărman, we visit two of the most remarkable fortifications in Transylvania. 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 find a large collection of Oriental carpets, which is unusual for a Protestant church. Return to Sibiu.
