Bran Castle

Bran Castle

Represents one of the most important heritages of our country, known worldwide for its beauty and Dracula's legend - the vampire feeding with human blood who lived in this castle, as presented in Bram Stoker's novel. The castle is very well preserved, now a 4 floor museum, a great exhibition of ceramics, weapons, wooden genuine furniture. Also, the secret tunnel may be visited.

Rasnov Fortress

Rasnov Fortress

Rasnov Fortress (Rosenau in German), is located on a rocky hilltop in the Carpathian Mountains, 650 ft. above the town of Rasnov. Strategically located on the commercial route linking the provinces of Transylvania and Walachia, Rasnov differs from other Saxon fortresses in that it was designed as a place of refuge over extended periods of time.

Brasov city

Brasov city

Voted the most visited city in 2013, a very well preserved Saxon city, at the foot of Tampa Hill.

Saschiz

Saschiz

The village of Saschiz has some very distinctive features. In a region where the myth of Dracula is exploited on his full potential, Saschiz can offer tourists a unique alternative: the beautiful gothic church with its clock-tower and the famous Saxon houses. In fact, those houses were included by UNESCO, in 1999, on the list of world’s heritage, together with six other Romanian sites.

Sighisoara

Sighisoara

Founded by Transylvanian Saxons during the 12th century, Sighisoara (Schassburg in German) still stands as one of the most beautiful and best-preserved medieval towns in Europe. Designated as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, this perfectly intact 16th century gem with nine towers, cobbled streets, burgher houses and ornate churches rivals the historic streets of Old Prague or Vienna for atmospheric magic.

Biertan village

Biertan village

If the idea of medieval time-travel has ever appealed to you, one of the closest experiences you can have is to visit the authentic village of Biertan, a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Sibiu

Sibiu

Was the largest and wealthiest of the seven walled citadels built in the 12th century by German settlers known as Transylvanian Saxons. In 2007 the city had the once in a generation opportunity to hosts the European Capital of Culture designation.
