Tour of Transylvania's Countryside: Sighisoara Citadel & Fortified Villages

Florin With: Florin 12
Join me on this day trip to discover Transylvania's medieval heritage! We drive from Cluj-Napoca through the beautiful countryside and go visit 500-year-old Saxon (German) settlements to admire how beautifully preserved they are: the fortified city of Medias and the UNESCO settlements of Biertan and Sighisoara Citadel! A fascinating history and cultural trip with scenic landscapes!


Moments to expect during the tour to Sighsoara Citadel and Transylvania:

  • City of Medias - part of Siebenburgen

    Our first stop will be in the Saxon town of Medias which has a tower 69 m tall but is tilted over 2 meters! 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 settlement.

  • The 500-year-old church in Biertan

    The Saxons settled in South Transylvania 7-8 centuries ago and their heritage is still with us. Their influence on Romanian culture is extensive - 400 hundred years ago they invented couples' therapy (maybe you want to try it?). But all things aside, the fortified church in the village of Biertan is massive, impressive and jaw-dropping!

  • Sighisoara Citadel

    Finally, we go visit Sighisoara Citadel, the best preserved and few remaining inhabited medieval citadels in Europe, part of UNESCO heritage. We go on a tour of old, narrow and cobbled streets, admire the famous colorful houses with small details and learn about its impressive history and cultural importance. We can stop for lunch in traditional Saxon houses if you like.
