An idyllic Transylvania, far from the madding crowd…
Transylvania – a multicultural land. It is the land of endless stories, where sometimes your imagination transcends the reality.

Why You'll Love This Trip

Visiting Sibiu and the villages around, you’ll discover a place in which, during the centuries, three main ethnic groups (Saxons, Romanians and Landlers) have lived together, through good and hard times. Join us and meet amazing people, explore the architectural heritage and enjoy the beautiful landscape!

An idyllic Transylvania, far from the madding crowd…like travelling in time… Carriages pulled by horses are still a means of transport and, in the morning, you may be woken up by the cows’ bells as they idly walk along the little streets heading towards the pastures.
This tour is perfect if you are curious to discover our culture, history and daily life. As our region values, this tour will combine the stories of three main ethnic groups: Saxons, Romanians and Landlers.

In Cristian we’ll visit a beautiful fortified church (in the Bacon Tower, we’ll taste some delicious home-made products) and we’ll learn more about the “town of storks”.
