Back in time. A medieval trip through Romania.

If I haven’t posted for more than two weeks is because I was away, first in Dubai for work and then in Romania for holiday (where I still am at the moment). When I planned my trip to Romania I really wanted to do something different, so I took my parents on a trip across the medieval cities of Brasov, Sighisoara and Sibiu. They host some of Europe’s most preserved medieval towns, located in the Saxon part of Transilvania. If Brasov was already a town close to my heart – this is where I did my university studies – it was for the first time I visited Sighisoara and Sibiu, and it was worth every minute of it. I have more than one hundred photos and some more info I would like to share, but I will start with just three view over shots from the three locations.


Brasov. View of the old town from ‘Drumul Poienii’ – a road linking Brasov to the most popular and beautiful mountain ski resort in Romania, Poiana Brasov, situated at 1,020 meters altitude.


Sighisoara, view from ‘Turnul cu ceas’ (The Clock Tower). Sighisoara is the most popular and the best preserved medieval town in Transylvania, founded in the 12th century by German craftsmen and merchants.


Sibiu, European Capital of Culture in 2007, view from ‘Catedrala Evanghelica’ (Evangelical Cathedral of Sibiu), from its tower, the tallest in Transylvania (73 meters).

And just to give an idea about where the three towns are located:
