Day 1: Airport*- Sibiel – Museum of Painted Glass Icons

Welcome to Transylvania! Soon after your arrival at the airport you’ll be transferred to the rural area of Sibiel, a delightful place at the foot of the Carpathian mountains. Sibiel is a unique place where traditions have not changed, where locals are still seen wearing peasant clothes created by their own hands. After reaching your accommodation – a boarding house in the center of the village- we will visit the Museum of Painted Glass Icons, the largest of its kind in Romania.

On our second day, we’ll delve into the medieval history of Transylvania. First we’ll visit the fortified church of Biertan, a place of worship, refuge and prison all at once. Then we’ll take a stroll on the winding cobblestone streets of the picturesque Sighişoara, up to the Clock Tower. Interestingly, Sighişoara is the only fortress in southeastern Europe which has been constantly inhabited for almost 1000 years. In the evening, your hosts will organize a party including meals, music and Romanian traditional folk dances.

Day 3: Hiking in Mărginimea Sibiului, one of the most beautiful rural areas in Europe

After breakfast you’ll try a means of transport that disappeared from Europe a long time ago, the cart pulled by horses, a means of transport that is actually still used in the Romanian countryside. Our beautiful journey will take us through the Carpathian forests and we’ll pause for a picnic in a meadow offering a panoramic view on the surrounding villages. All products served are organic, the result of a natural process that has remained largely unaltered for decades.

(Sibiel -Alba Iulia –Calnic –Sibiel)
Mornings in Transylvanian villages are full of hustle and bustle, as right after sunrise the work day begins and the streets are animated with people and animals. We leave the busy morning atmosphere behind and head to the Alba Carolina Fortress, the largest fortress in Romania, whose history begins with the Roman Empire and continues to this day. Our next tourist sight is Câlnic Castle, a monument listed under the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, an ancient noble’s dungeon turned into a defense fortress.
