Transylvanian Hills - cycling over the hills in the Saxon villages and fortified churches

One year ago we did a great MTB tour through the so called Transylvanian Hills. This area contains many Saxon villages delimited by the cities of Brașov, Sighișoara, Mediaș and Sibiu.

The people living here understand the importance and benefits of sustainable tourism and Romanian and foreign tourists love it here due to the beautiful fortified churches, the house's architecture, traditional way of living and unspoiled nature 😊

Viscri - Prince Charles in the Transylvanian hills

We finally got to write about the already famous Viscri village in Transylvania. As you may know, this village was made famous by Great Britain's Prince Charles who bought a house here and who promotes maintaining Saxon traditions, houses and an authentic and sustainable way of life. He found all these here in Romania, Transylvania. 

Prejmer Fortified Church

In the summer of 2012 we did a tour of Transylvania. In the second part of this tour we scheduled several visits at the fortified churches near Brașov. Today we'll write about Prejmer fortified church.

Biertan Fortified Church

In the heart of Transylvania, in the village of Biertan in Sibiu county we found on of the most beautiful fortified churches in Romania. Just 10 km away from the national highway linking Mediaș to Sighișoara, Biertan is usually unknown to tourists and many don't know that this treasure exists.
