    Our first stop will be in the Saxon town of Medias which has a tower 69 m tall - tilted like the Leaning Tower of Pisa! We'll spend 1 hour here to go for a walk and coffee while learning some fun stories and legends about the history of this important settlement part of the Saxon Siebenburgen.

  • The 500-year-old church in Biertan

    Saxons colonists came to South Transylvania in the 14th century and their heritage, culture and way of life is still with us today. The fortified church in the village of Biertan is massive, impressive and jaw-dropping! It's where an original couples' therapy was practiced 400 years ago - maybe you want to try it? :)

  • Medieval Sighisoara Citadel

We go on a tour of the old cobbled streets and main squares, admire colorful and built-to-last medieval houses and learn about the impressive history and cultural importance of the citadel, now part of UNESCO heritage.
