Next, you will visit Biertan, a village that was mentioned for the first time in official documents in 1224. Today, the settlement is known worldwide due to its fortified church restored with funds raised by former inhabitants of the village which are now spread all over the world. You will then enjoy a delicious lunch in a medieval restaurant.

Before heading back to Brasov, you will stop at Rumidava, a former Dacian settlement, where you will visit the Rupea Citadel. Your tour will come to an end in Brasov, where you will take a tour of the city center and discover the history of the Black Church.
