Short route description

This is a long tour, an all day one. Just after leaving Braşov we will stop to the fortified church from Ghimbav, a Saxon village, representative for Transylvania, where time seems to have stopped. You will feel quiet and calm and you will be released of the city stress having passed a little of the history of these places. The next stop is at Şinca Veche Monastery, a religious place dug in the stone. The historians say that the temple is unique in the world. It was a refugee place used by the Orthodox monks harassed by Maria Teresa to become convert to the Catholic Faith. Făgăraş Citadel, the next point of interest, is on of the biggest citadels in Romania, even in Europe, having more destinations within the years that have past (including a communist prison). A special place follows, a restaurant-accomodation-trout lake complex, placed inside of the mountain, a place where you can have lunch, consisting in fresh fish taking from the basins among which you can have a walk. The aim of this track, Sibiu, is a medieval city, resembling to Braşov with an old center and medieval houses, probably the most important Saxon center in Transylvania. On the way back to Braşov we will have the last stop and visit the ruins of Cârţa Monastery, one of the oldest and most important monuments of the Early Gothic style in Transylvania.
