We invite you to enjoy our 11 days tour through breathtaking Transylvania, with its magnificent landscapes, such as Turda Gorges, Fagaras Mountains, Olt Valley, cozy accommodation in medieval cities like Sibiu, old city of Alba Iulia, historic center of Sighisoara, part of UNESCO heritage, always surprising Brasov, or wonderful traditions inherited and well-kept by friendly people from Marginimea Sibiului and Bran.
There is no doubt that Transylvania gathers cultural and historical heritage from Romanian, German and Hungarian people, creating a unique mix of cities, traditions, crafts and lifestyles. But let’s not forget about landscapes, some of them found only here: gorges created by naughty rivers, high plateaus sprinkled with sheep and cows that will provide you milk or other natural products, hills caressed by the gentle sun and many others!
This is only a little part from our proposed experience into this fascinating Romania country.
A great adventure is waiting for you! Don’t miss our tour in Transylvania!
