Adela With: Adela 50
Romanians, Saxons and Hungarians have lived in the villages around Sibiu for centuries. Let's see how different cultures, religions and traditions have created a fascinating way of life. We will go in the villages and visit historical sites, meet locals and learn about their lives. A lovely walk in the picturesque countryside of Sibiu! For an authentic experience we can have a home-cooked lunch!

    Dating back to the 12th century, this is among the first fortresses built in Transylvania. Though an amazing construction for its time, it is now in ruins. Nevertheless, there is much history to be learned here and an amazing view over the surrounding area.
