Transylvanian Medieval Castles & Fortified Churches Tour – 4 days

The Saxon villages appeared in Transylvania around the XVIIIth century when the Hungarian kings settled here German colonists. Their cultural identity was preserved thanks to the multitude of crafts and traditions despite the constant threat of the Ottoman Empire. Thus, the Saxons formed a strong community in Transylvania and managed to protect their land by creating fortifications around their churches. Nowadays, among 150 medieval fortified churches, 7 are part of UNESCO world heritage. This tour is the perfect way to discover their story and step back time for only three days in the mysterious Transylvania.
