Day Trip: Village Life in Sibiu Countryside

Adela With: Adela 39
Romanians, Saxons and Hungarians have lived in harmony 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 visit historical sites, meet local people, learn about their daily lives and Romanian rural culture. Come with me for a lovely walk in the picturesque countryside of Sibiu!

Moments to expect in the Sibiu countryside trip:

  • Cristian Fortified Church

    The village of Cristian is where Saxons and Landlers used to live. It is a multicultural place with so many nice stories. It will be our first stop and introduction into the history of Sibiu region and Transylvania.

  • Sibiel Icon Glass Museum

    Sibiel Icon Glass Museum

    This unique museum has the most beautiful and biggest collection of Orthodox icons in Romania, and probably Eastern Europe. You will learn about the important role religion played in Romanian history and culture and see how painting styles evolved over time.

  • Cisnadioara fortress

    Cisnadioara fortress

    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.

  • View above the village

    If the weather is nice, we'll have a relaxing walk on the hills overlooking the villages. We'll learn how our Dacian ancestors built here a fortress 2000 years ago, how Autro-Hungarian authorities built a customs and brought soldiers to guard the mountain passageways and, finally, how the Romanian and German troups fought on these hills during WWI. All this while admiring superb views!
