Description:

Departure from Cluj in the morning, heading for Saxon Transylvania. The Saxons were colonized in Transylvania beginning with the 12th century in order to defend the southeastern border of the Kingdom of Hungary. All their settlements were organized around a central church, which, during war times, was used as a refuge for the local families. As during the Middle Ages Transylvania was often invaded by the Mongol tribes, the Saxons began fortifying their houses and mainly the churches. The fortified churches we can still see today are the result of several fortification stages that took place during the centuries.

First stop will be in Biertan to visit the fortified church which, for almost 300 years, was the Transylvanian bishop's residence. Lunch on the way in a restaurant.

Next destination is the medieval fortress of Sighisoara, one of the few of it's kind still inhabited in Europe. Still surrounded by 9 of the initial 14 defense towers, each one belonging to a local guild, the fortress shelters not only beautiful Medieval architecture, but also medieval legends, such as the one connected to Vlad Tepes 'Dracula” birthplace.

Back in Cluj in late afternoon.
