The perfect combination for getting to know Transylvania as a multicultural place, where
different communities had lived together in a perfect combination of influences from west and
east Europe, beautiful nature and a bit of history and royalty.
The journey starts with a visit to the Salt Mine Turda, ranked in 2013 by the Business Insider as
among the „25 hidden gems around the world that are worth the trek”, continuing with our first
contact with the sasi si saxoni culture and the heritage they left us, all of it part of the UNESCO´s
patrimony. First it will be with Sighisoara, the only citadel in Europe that is still inhabited,
followed by Viscri, made famous by Prince Charles of the British Royal Family, who visits it
often and makes many efforts for its preservation.
Symbols of Romanian royalty, Peles and Pelisor castles will surprize you with unique collections
of early 20th century Viennese furniture and Tiffany and Lalique glassware. While being in
Transylvania you can’t miss Dracula’s Castle (Bran), one of the most famous symbols of the
Count, Rasnov fortress built by the Teutonic Knights and enlarged later by the local Saxon
population and Brasov, one of the oldest cities in the country and the birthplace of the national
anthem of Romania.
Travelling without enjoying a little bit of nature it has no sense, so this day is dedicated to it. A
tour on the charming Transfagarasan Road, with a short stop to Balea waterfall and lunch at Balea
Lake. Relaxing time at 2034m altitude with amazing views will follow. A fairy tail experience in
the Clay Castle and its magical garden will end the day.
You will enjoy a city tour in the charming Sibiu, the largest and wealthiest of the seven citadels
built in the 12th century by the German settlers, the Transylvanian Saxons, where the noble
Saxon history emanates from facade and church. The next stop it will be in Alba Iulia, to visit the
largest citadel in Romania and center of Romanian nationalism, as it was in Alba Iulia that the
union of Transylvania with Romania was pronounced on 1st of December 1918.
