This trip will take you to the magic space of Transylvania – the land beyond the forests, as Romans used to call it. It will show you the rural Romania, a sort of timelessness that still exists and cannot be found anymore anywhere in Europe.
Most of the villages in Transylvania have built fortified churches in the Middle Ages, for defense purposes. Today, there are about 150 of well-preserved churches, in south-eastern Transylvania alone, out of which seven villages founded by the Transylvanian Saxons are part of UNESCO patrimony.
Make no mistake though. This is not just about seeing some village churches. It is about the whole experience in the countryside, as these Transylvanian villages are probably Europe’s last medieval landscapes basically unchanged for hundreds of years. So, if you decide to make this trip, do not ask where the church is. Take a walk, see the village, see the people and how they work, have a look inside their houses, learn about their customs.

 

The seven villages part of UNESCO patrimony are: Biertan, Câlnic, Dârjiu, Prejmer, Saschiz, Valea Viilor and Viscri. The tour will take you to all these villages and little bit more.
