“Great four day/three night trip in Transylvania”

I had been wanting to visit the old Saxon cities and villages in Transylvania for years

Reviewed September 13, 2015

 

I had been wanting to visit the old Saxon cities and villages in Transylvania for years. My wife Linda, not so much, but she's a very good sport and went along. George was an outstanding guide, very knowledgeable and good company. Our destinations were pretty standard for three nights/four days - Sibiu, Sigisoara and Brasov, with stops in several castles and fortified churches as well. Our high point was a lunch with a very nice farm family in Floresti. I highly recommend George for anyone wanting very attentive and caring service, as well as very good driving.

Our favorite day tour was a drive from Sibiu - a real gem - to Sigisoara - another gem. It included an open air museum of over 50 traditional style homes and churches imported from all over Romania and located along a lake near Sibiu. It was really amazing. We followed this by visiting two fortified churches in old German villages, topped by the above-mentioned lunch with a farm family in a third village. We got to Sigisoara at 2pm and had a good guided tour there as well. It could not have been a better day.

  3. Discover with us the Fortified Churches from Transylvania!

    Without a doubt, Transylvania's treasures are the Fortified Churches. These churches look more like fortresses and were built 8 centuries ago by the german colonists settled in Transylvania. In the 12th century, a germanic population came into what is today Transylvania and started a new life. This part of Europe was often attacked by invaders such as ottomans or tartars and this is why these churches were built with one, two or even three defensive walls around. This is the concept of a Fortified Church: a place where locals took refuge in case of an invasion. [...]
