Complete Guide and Itinerary

Welcome to Romania!

You will start the day with a short walk to the Astra Museum, where you will get to know the rural life in Romania by admiring a collection of houses and households from different areas of the country. If you are lucky, you may participate in one of the countless events that are organized within the museum.

After that, you’ll be having lunch at a restaurant in the park, and leave for the old center afterwards. Initially inhabited by Saxons, Sibiu was the capital of Transylvania between 1692-1791 and 1849-1865. It preserves many examples of authentic Saxon architecture, and due to its vintage look, with cobbled streets, baroque buildings, and idyllic surroundings, Sibiu has been included in a list of the most beautiful places to live in Europe. In 2007, Sibiu gained the title of “European Capital of Culture”.

Continue towards Sighișoara and make a stop at Biertan to visit the fortified church. Sighișoara is regarded as the most magnificent and well-preserved inhabited citadel in all of Europe because of its distinctive medieval architecture. The lower Town is located in the valley of Târnava-Mare river, while the medieval stronghold was constructed atop a hill.
