We will begin the day tour with you being picked up from your accommodation, in or in close proximity to Sibiu.
From here we will travel to the heart of the Wine Region of Transylvania, Biertan, formerly known as Birthälm, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1993, a small village with a rich history having great photographic appeal. The home of the Church of Biertan, with elaborate towers and defenses, was constructed by the Saxons between 1486 and 1524 and was the see of the Lutheran Evangelical Bishops of Transylvania between 1572 and 1867 – the strongest fortified church of Transylvania.
Our next stop will be the main destination of this tour, Sighisoara, the last inhabited medieval citadel in Eastern Europe. Besides that Sighisoara is the only Unesco heritage protected town of Romania and the birthplace of the famous Vlad the Impaler who was to be associated with the fictional character Dracula in the late XIX th century.
Today its narrow streets with old houses, medieval churches and defensive towers recreate a very romantic medieval atmosphere that in most of Europe was lost long time ago. As it is my birthtown where I have spent whole my life I find it difficult to describe it in a few phrases. But I will offer you a comprehensive tour covering the symbols of the city, such as: The Clock tower, Church on the Hill, the house where Vlad Tepes was born and many others, presented to you from a local authentic perspective. At the end of this tour for sure you will be hungry so I will recommend you few local restaurants where you can treat yourself with Transylvanian authentic cuisine.
The tour will end with drop off at your accommodation in Sibiu but this day tour can also be used as a transfer to Sighisoara.
