Sibiu

The cobblestone streets, the eyes of the roofs that watch your every step and gesture, the impressive churches with their elegant towers, the famous Bridge of Lies, the smart cafes, all make Sibiu one of the most fascinating romantic and medieval city of Transylvania. No wonder that in 2007 was rightfully endowed with the title of the European Capital of Culture.

Brasov

A charming medieval town with loads of history behind, Brasov is home to various festivals, hosts the largest gothic church from Romania and is surrounded by massive stone walls. Very close to Brasov, lie two very important royal palaces: Bran, often referred to as Dracula‘s home, and Peles, the summer residence of Romanian royalties. Another point of interest is Râsnov, medieval fortress and the trade route connecting legendary Wallachia with mythical Transylvania.

Sighisoara

Sighisoara, the only fortress in the world where people continued to live constantly to this very day, is associated with the birth of Vlad Tepes, the Romanian ruler who inspired Bram Stoker‘s famous novel of Dracula. The very refined mechanisms of the Clock Tower with the human figurines continue to strike every hour for centuries, and the annual Festival of the Medieval Arts brings together tourists and locals.

The northwestern Romanian region of Maramures is home to many villages where century-old traditions are still part of daily life. The inhabitants of this area have preserved the rural culture and crafts of their Dacian ancestors: wood-carving, ceramics, eggpainting. We dare you to try some of these, in our artisan session! The traditional costumes, the special cuisine, the beautiful landscape and the simplicity of life will definitely conquer you!
