Sighisoara is also the place where Vlad the Impaler was born, the historical figure which inspired Bram Stoker’s fictional character, Count Dracula.
After a delightful lunch in a Saxon Restaurant we will head to Sibiu, the informal capital of Transylvania, “Europe’s 8th most idyllic place to live” according to Forbes, in 2007 Cultural Capital of Europe, considered one of the most romantic cities of the continent.

After breakfast in Sibiu we will cross the Carpathian Mountains from North to South heading to Bucharest. We will be driving along the scenic views of Olt Valley on DN 7 a former Roman commercial road between Wallachia and Transylvania.
We will stop at Curtea de Arges to visit maybe the most important Orthodox spiritual landmark of Southern part of Romania, Curtea de Arges Monastery. Built over 500 years ago the Cathedral has a unique architecture blending Byzantine and Ottoman styles. Resembling more with a mosque than with an Orthodox cathedral this site is a must see for the ones interested in centuries old religious sites.
