The Saxon Heritage from Transylvania dates back more than 900 years. Fortified Churches, Peasants Fortresses and Castles – this is what we'll discover in our Private Tour in Transylvania. Here, the ways of life have remained unchanged after hundreds of years. With the help of „Mihai Eminescu Trust Foundation” that functioned under the patronage of Prince of Wales, many of the traditional houses from the Transylvanian villages were carefully restored and are now ready for us.
