Viscri is part of the UNESCO group of Saxon villages with fortified churches and is one of the most representative villages for Transylvania local life and culture. Restored village houses are now guesthouses, locals continue their handicraft traditions, food is still plentiful and home made. Life is slow, charming and delightful.
