Meal not included but we can stop along the way for lunch, I know a couple of good local places.
Bring comfortable clothing and shoes.
Starting our trip from Sibiu we will travel in the countryside to Corvin Castle, also known as Hunyadi Castle. We will learn about its agitated history, visit its courtyard, old towers and interior rooms. Hear about the legend surrounding the crow that represents the owner family seal. Then - admire the landscape and nature.
We continue our trip to the city of Alba Iulia which hosts a beautifully restored 300 year old fortified citadel, built by the Habsburgs on Dacian and Roman (our ancestors) settlements. This is where the Great Romanian Union of 1918 took place - so you can imagine its historical importance. We will visit some major landmarks and enjoy the splendid walking area. Great photo opportunities by the way!
If there's a fortification there must be guards nearby! During the summer and every day at noon a wonderful and ritualistic moment takes place: changing the guards. An old tradition that goes back into historical times and atmosphere. It's a "must" during our visit!
Ulpia Traiana Sarmizegetusa was the political, administrative and religious center of Roman Dacia in the 2nd and 3rd centuries, after these lands were conquered by the Roman Empire. Today the archeological site known as Sarmisegetusza Ulpia Traiana consists of ruins of a well-preserved forum, amphitheater, and remnants of several temples.
