Description

Sighisoara is quite a small city in the Transylvania with cobbled streets, colorful buildings, fairy-tale-like fortified and with contemporary activities and happy locals.

The city has a history dating back to the 1100s and has a lot of storied regarding Saxons, kings, German craftsmen and artisans and everything in between. All these transformed Sighișoara in a UNESCO World Heritage site.

The entire day you will be guided through the city, see the Vlad Dracul's (Vlad the Impaler's) birthplace, the favorite places in the town of Prince Charles and spend the rest of the day like a local with our Transylvanian guides in Sighișoara and the Sibiu - the most romantic city in Romania.

Lunch and dinner will be served in the tastiest and local restaurants in Sighișoara and Sibiu!

 

The 2nd day will be at the fortress that guarded the entry to Transylvania from an extinct volcanic cone, and you'll visit the Corvin Castle to see where Vlad the Impaler was imprisoned for several years!

 

The first stop to is one of the most impressive & iconic castles that we know of: a gothic architectural appearance of 7000 sqm where Vlad the Impaler was imprisoned for several years - The Corvin's Castle.

After leaving the scary (but stunning) castle behind and have lunch, you will head to Deva fortress.

 

This is not your typical medieval fortress, but the fortress that guarded the entry to Transylvania from the Mures Valley!

Located on an extinct volcanic cone and with a strategic position, it has a rich history: at first, it had a military role and, over time, it has been ruled by princes and duchesses. It was both used a defense location, but as a luxury house with private dwelling too. It was given as a gift, sold, bombed, and so it became one of the most important fortresses in Transylvania that dates back to the 13th century.

 

After these charming fortress and castle, you will head to Alba Iulia Citadel, where our guides will immerse you into a place where history goes back 2,000 years to the time when the Roman Empire conquered the Dacian Kingdom!

 

And you will discover the most exciting stories of this spectacular citadel: its star shape history, the Roman castrum, the medieval fortification and the power of the defense moat surrounding the fortress (which now constitutes a dendrological park thanks to the over 70 species of plants and shrubs growing there), the royal happenings and you will also see the prison cells of our heroic figures, Horea, Cloșca and Crișan who were executed on a breaking wheel for leading a revolt.
