Description

In the morning, your tour guide will pick you up and you will take a road trip to the city of Mediaș, where you will visit the Citadel of Light as part of a short walking tour.

Your next destination is Biertan, where you will visit the Biertan Fortified Church. The religious edifice surrounded by thick medieval walls was built in the 15th century, and the front door is equipped with no less than 19 locks and bolts.

The main attraction of the day is the Sighisoara Medieval Citadel, the only inhabited citadel in Europe. The narrow cobblestone streets surrounded by colorful buildings reveal the beauty of this place, and you will take be impressed by the numerous street performers and craftsmen.

Since Transylvania was home to isolated villages rather than to large urban settlements, here we will find traces of the medieval life in one of the villages that we will visit on our way back. Today we will visit some of their villages, and a stop at a local craftsman will teach us about smithing methods used in medieval times.

On our way back to Cluj we will take a different route in order to explore some of the stunning landscape of Transylvania.

Great tour of the Communist Era
This tour was really great. I visited all the main sigths of the communist era in Bucharest, including the Palace of the Parliament (about 1.5 hours tour) and Ceaușescu's house (about 45 mins). I asked my guide about a snack lunch and was taken to the local market, where I had traditional small sausages and a beer with the locals, which was great.
