Overview

Complete Guide and Itinerary

Cluj-Napoca – Sighisoara – Turda – Cluj-Napoca

A land out of a fairy tale, encircled by untamed mountains, verdant valleys, and medieval settlements. Transylvania is the beating heart of Romania, cradled by the Carpathian Mountains, a land of mystery and magic where time seems to stand still. Shepherds gracefully tend their herds as horse-drawn carriages rumble around the cobblestoned streets, and villagers may even make hay in the warm rays of the sun.

Even the most curious minds start to wonder if time travel is real when they experience the joyous interactions between the past and present.

It gets under your skin and makes you want to put your dancing shoes on when you experience Cluj Napoca’s vibrancy. Once your emotions have settled, you can let your mind and body relax and reconnect with the past.

Letting your curiosity take hold of yourself, you end up being flabbergasted by the last truly medieval town in Europe, Sighisoara. The pastel-hued buildings, the picturesque streets, and the stillness of time bring one question to mind:

How does Vlad the Impaler and his ways fit into this tranquil setting?

I suppose this is the right time to just sit down, take a deep breath, and appreciate the moment. Enjoy the fact that we may stroll peacefully around Sighisoara’s magnificent streets without worrying that Vlad might ambush us from a shadowy corner of the castle.

Set your time travel machine and teleport right back into the present time. Where?

Underground.

Yes, you heard that right. We want you to teleport right into the ground to one of the oldest salt mines in the world.

Turda’s salt mine, shaped by people, will truly make you question the unfathomable capabilities of humankind.

By exploring this salty maze, you can experience the true magic of it. You’ll thank yourself later, because your health, your inner child, and your insatiable curiosity will all be satisfied.

Why, you may ask?

Due to the air’s high salt content, this magical world has wonderful health advantages. At the center of it, there is an amusement park that is just waiting for you to enjoy it.

Yeah, we know, you just want to pack your bags and come already, right?

No rush.

Remember, it’s like you travel not just to a destination but also back in time.

Turda Salt Mine.

The walls of the mine are pattened with salt deposits, making the surroundings a spectacular display of the unexpected beauty of the underground world. Today, the mine still holds more than 38 million tonnes of salt, more than enough to meet the salt needs of the entire world for at least the next 60 years!

Sarea-n Bucate. Surrounded by the beautiful rolling hills of Transylvania, Sarea-n Bucate is the perfect place to connect with nature and get a taste of the local cuisine. You will enjoy a fantastic lunch complemented with a wine tasting here.

OPTIONAL – Visit to a Rroma family in Brateiu. You have a unique opportunity to visit a typical Rroma family. Victor, the head of the family who is a traditional artisan, will tell you more about their history, culture and lifestyle, including some personal stories. He will show us his workshop and products maded of copper, brass and silver. You will also meet his wife and children. This is a perfect stop for those who want to learn about this heavily discriminated ethnic minority in Europe, wrongly called gypsies, subject to many prejudices and misconceptions.
