Route: Sibiu – Sighişoara – Biertan Fortress – Alma Vii

Sighişoara is a beautiful UNESCO citadel, the only fortress still lived in Europe. It is said that Dracula was born in here so, it will be the perfect place to discover who the threatening prince really was…

We’ll learn about the famous vineyards, the fortification system, listen to great stories about the Bacon Tower, the married couples prison, the famous sacristy door and so many others…
