Transylvania Round Trip
Transylvania (Latin for ‘the land beyond the forest’) is the Romanian region with the most significant cultural diversity. A breathtaking scenery enhances the beauty of this region. There are plenty of tourist attractions, from the well-known Dracula’s Castle to the medieval cities (Cluj, Sibiu, Brașov) and the fortified Saxon churches.
Day 1: Cluj – Bran
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. We then take the ‘road of the fortified churches’. Apart from the cities and fortresses there are a lot of Saxon (German) villages that remind us of the past. We stop in Viscri, listed by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site, a village with beautiful landscapes, a fortified church and the typical white and blue Saxon households. Afterwards, we go to Bran for our overnight stay.
Day 2: Bran – Sibiel
In the morning, we will visit Bran Castle, also known as Dracula’s Castle. It was built in 1377 to safeguard the trade route between Transylvania and Walachia and it has been expanded and restored several times since then. This castle is known as the homestead of Vlad the Impaler and it is the most visited attraction in Romania. We then go to Brașov for a tour of the city and we visit the central 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. We will then travel along the most beautiful side of the Carpathian mountain range to get to a historically valuable monastery called Sâmbăta de Sus; a shop with glass icons will be open here. Our final destination for the day is Sibiel, a typical Romanian village, where we are invited at a farm where we will have dinner and stay for the night.
Day 3: Sibiel – Cluj
After breakfast we go to Sibiu. During our city tour we will see the Evangelical Church, the Council Tower, the Large and the Small Square, the Liars’ Bridge, the Peasants’ Market and the historic buildings that create that special medieval atmosphere. Our next stop is Alba Iulia, where we visit the Orthodox Cathedral with its mosaic images, the Roman-Catholic Church, and the former Habsburg fortress. Then, in the middle of nature we find the Râmețului Gorge. Here, we visit the Râmeț Monastery and a typical Hungarian Transylvanian village in Transylvania, Rimetea. Afterwards, we drive to Cluj.
