From Cluj: Diverse Transylvania – Day Trip to Sighisoara

1. From Cluj: Diverse Transylvania – Day Trip to Sighisoara

Your tour will start in the morning when you will be picked up from your hotel and taken on a 2-hour road trip to Medias. Take a short walking tour of the city and get a glimpse of the Citadel of Light and of the beautiful medieval buildings, most of which were built in the 15th century. You will then head to Biertan in order to visit the Biertan fortified church, a monument included in the UNESCO patrimony as part of Transylvania’s villages with fortified churches. The church is surrounded by thick medieval walls which were built in the 15th century, and the front door is equipped with 19 locks and bolts. Your next stop will be in Sighisoara. The medieval Sighisoara Citadel is the only inhabited citadel in Europe and it is surrounded by 9 towers, the Clock Tower being the most important of all. The Clock Tower was destroyed by a fire, but it was rebuilt in the 16th century, and it is now home to a history museum that includes a torture chamber. The Sighisoara Citadel was built in the 12th century, and it had a significant role throughout Transylvania’s history, Sighisoara being one of its 7 independent cities. In Sighisoara, you will also visit the Hill Church, a holy site that you can reach by climbing 175 wooden steps, as well as several other buildings such as the Stag House and a Venetian House. If Transylvania were to be described in one word, the word diverse would be chosen. This historical land was home to numerous isolated villages, and you will find traces of its Romanian, Hungarian, Gypsy and German communities, all living in harmony for hundreds of years. Gypsies first settled in Romania more than 800 years ago, after being forced away from their lands by the Mongol invasion. Today, you will visit an isolated community of Gypsies who earn their living through various crafts such as copper smithing. Because they are a slightly isolated community, the access is permitted only to those accompanied by someone they trust. On your way back to Cluj, you will take a different route in order to explore some of the stunning landscape of Transylvania. You will be back in Cluj by night, the duration of the trip being affected by traffic.

Our day trip across Transylvania was great! My friend and I really felt like we got a locals perspective on the region thanks to our guide Catalin, who was very knowledgeable about the region and had an answer to all our questions, no matter how off topic they were sometimes. My favorite part of the tour was definitely Sigishoara, just walking around the enclosure was lovely and the clock tower had great views! Additionally, Catalin went above and beyond after I left my water bottle in his car. He took time from his day off to drop it off at my hostel! His kindness was very much appreciated.

Outstanding Day. Eye Opening Experience. Highly Recommended.

Outstanding Day. Eye Opening Experience. Highly Recommended. Our guide, Catalin, was terrific, mixing, facts, history, humor, contemporary commentary and relaxed manner to create a memorable day. Obviously, a place like Sighisoara can't help but impress. But, visits to Biertan and Medias were off-the-beaten track and well worth the visit. The quick stop with the Roma family was unique. All-in-all a terrific day.

Meeting a local coppersmith was exciting. And Sighisoara was great. Our guide could tell an incredible amount about everything we saw.
