Itinerary of your trip Top Attractions Of Transylvania In A 4-Day Tour

  • Day 1 Bucharest-Curtea De Arges-Transfgarasan-Sibiu
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Bucharest-Curtea De Arges-Transfgarasan-Sibiu

      We will start our journey early in the morning, leaving Bucharest and heading to Curtea de Arges City, the first capital of Wallachia, Romania’s southern region, a truly charming place full of history and surrounded by the curious legend of master Manole. Here you will see a piece of Romanian history by visiting one of the most famous monasteries in Romania:Curtea de Arges Monastery, where are buried the great rulers of Romania. We will continue our journey on the Transfagarasan Road, which is 90 kilometers (56 miles) long. The road has more tunnels and viaducts than any other road in Romania. In September 2009, the British television show Top Gear was filming along the road. Host Jeremy Clarkson claimed the Transfagarasan as the best road in the world. As you continue, you will see a waterfall and some great scenic spots. On the highest point of the Transfagarasan, near Balea Lac (Balea Lake), is located the longest and highest tunnel in Romania. This tunnel is the connection between Transylvania and Walachia. Balea Lake is a glacier lake with clear and icy water. Our final stop on this day is Sibiu, where you will be staying overnight. The town was the largest and wealthiest of the seven walled citadels built in the 12th century by German settlers known as Transylvanian Saxons. Sibiu's Old Town retains the grandeur of its earlier days, when rich and powerful guilds dominated regional trade. Sibiu is a city with two easily accessible levels: the Lower town, lined with colorful houses on cobblestone streets and bounded by imposing city walls and defense towers, and the Upper town, home to most of Sibiu's historic sights.

  • Day 2 Corvinilor Castle-Alba Crolina Fortress
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Corvinilor Castle-Alba Crolina Fortress

      After breakfast, we will go to see one of the seven wonders of Romania, as many call it: Corvinilor Castle, also known as Hunyadi Castle or Hunedoara Castle, with Gothic architecture and recognized as being one of the biggest and most impressive buildings in Eastern Europe. The Corvin family had a great impact on Europe during the 15th century and was related to the family of Vlad the Impaler. The castle played a significant role in defending the region against the Ottoman Empire, and it was a vital military stronghold for the Kingdom of Hungary. A fairytale castle for some, a Gothic masterpiece for others, and even a haunted-looking place with great backgrounds for Hollywood movies It has three large areas: the Knight's Hall, the Diet Hall, and the circular stairway. The halls are rectangular in shape and are decorated with marble. The Diet Hall was used for ceremonies or formal receptions, while the Knight's Hall was used for feasts. Next, we'll explore the grandeur of the Alba Carolina Fortress, a stunning example of Vauban-style military architecture that is remarkable not only for its architectural elements and the beauty of its gates, which reflect unique military structures, but also for the rich history surrounding it. Built between 1715 and 1738 under the rule of King Carol the 6th, at a time when the Austrian Empire established its rule in Transylvania, the citadel had the purpose of protecting it against Turkish invaders and consolidating their power position. In 1918, Alba Iulia played a pivotal role in the unification of Romania and is associated with the Great Union of 1918, being the place where it was declared the unification of Transylvania with Romania. This event is considered one of the most important moments in modern Romanian history and is celebrated every year on December 1st as Romania's National Day.  In the evening, we will be back in Sibiu.

  • Day 3 Sighisoara Fortress- Brasov Old Town
    • 12:00 am - 11:59 pm

      Sighisoara Fortress- Brasov Old Town

      We leave in the morning for Sighisoara, one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. Designated a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, it is a perfectly intact 16th-century gem with nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses, and ornate churches. The Clock Tower, the house where Vlad Dracula (Vlad the Impaler) was born, the Church of the Hill with its 500-year-old frescoes, and the Church of the Dominican Monastery, known for its Transylvanian Renaissance carved altarpiece, baroque pulpit, and Oriental carpets, are just a few things really worth visiting here. Last but not least, on this day,Brasov is home to one of the narrowest streets in Europe—the Rope Street (Strada Sforii). Take a peek inside the Black Church (Biserica Neagra), the largest Gothic church in Romania. Though its name, Biserica Neagră (the Black Church), may seem dark and foreboding, the building is nothing to fear. Brasov is the city where you’ll spend the night.
