Transylvania Round Trip
- Bus tour
- 3 days
- Focusing on Transylvanian heritage
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: Brașov – Sighișoara – Cluj-Napoca
In the morning, we start our trip on the ‘road of the fortified churches’ (Feldioara – Rupea) towards Sighișoara. Here, we see the most beautiful medieval townscape in Romania. 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. We continue our journey 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. We then drive to Cluj. Dinner and accommodation in Cluj.
Day 2: Cluj – Alba Iulia – Sibiu
Visit of the historic center of Cluj: the Orthodox Cathedral, the opera house, the university, Matthew Corvin’s birthplace and St. Michael’s Cathedral (built in neo-Gothic style).
At noon, we continue our trip 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 evening, we reach Sibiu through Sebeș and Miercurea Sibiului. Dinner and accommodation in Sibiu.
Day 3: Sibiu – Brașov
After breakfast, we visit Sibiu. During our walk through the city center, the German architecture – best illustrated by narrow alleys, old bargain houses, palaces, churches and towers – will take us back to the times of the crafts. We also visit the historic center: the Evangelical Church, the Council Tower, the Large and the Small Square, the Liars’ Bridge, the Peasants’ Market etc. Upon our return to Brașov, we visit the Cistercian abbey of Cârța, whose ruins alone are very impressive.
