How Prince of Wales Fell in Love with Transylvania - Private Tour in 2018!

It is not a secret anymore that Prince of Wales is in love with Romania and especially with rural Transylvania. His Majesty visit Romania almost every year and spends few days in the saxon Villages from Transylvania.

In the late 80's, a british lady - Jessica Douglas-Home - visited Transylvania and learned about the distruction plan of the former communist dictator, Nicolae Ceausescu. The plan was to demolish the villages and instead to build factories and cities for workers. She went back in England and she started Mihai Eminescu Trust - a foundation aimed to save and restore the life of the Villages from Transylvania.

Ceausescu was finished in December 89 and in the early 90, Jessica came back and started the plan to save the Saxon Villages from Transylvania. Prince Charles became the patron of the Foundation and helped restoring lots of Saxon Houses in many villages in Transylvania.

This is how, Prince of Wales fell in love with Transylvania. Since then, he came in Romania almost 20 times and he bought many simple traditional houses in different villages from Transylvania and Maramures, the northwestern part of Romania.

Prince of Wales Houses in Transylvania are located in Viscri and Zalanpatak Villages. His good friend, Count Kalnoky restored few houses in the viilage and one of them became Prince Charle's favourite. Every time, Charles visits Zalanpatak, he stays at his house. Prince of wales's house in Zalanpatak is open for tourists aswell.

Viscri is another Saxon Village dear to Prince of Wales. The village became famous because of Charles. After  that everyone discovered what Viscri has to offer more - a fantastic Fortified Church ! Like in Zalanpatak, Prince of Wales owns a traditional house in Viscri Village. A simple blue house, open for tourists aswell.

Prince of Wales fell in love with the archaic way of life of the pasants from Transylvania. He went to Maramures, in the northwestern part of Romania and he discovered there the most traditional area of Romania. He choose Breb Village to by a wooden house, which is recently open for tourists.
