Short route description


You’ll enjoy a great variety of objectives during this one day tour: an Orthodox underground church founded by the Romanians ethnics forced to convert to the Catholic faith, a traditional and the oldest water mill of the Country of Fagaras, the ruins of the only Cistercian abbey still existing in Romania and, of course, the historical center of the city of Sibiu.



After leaving your accommodation in Brasov, the way goes on DN1 that links Brasov to Sibiu, parallel with the Fagaras Mountains. The first stop will be at Sinca Veche Orthodox Complex where there is an Orthodox Cave Church, dug in the ground by the Orthodox Christians. The historians say the temple is unique in the world. It was used as a refugee place by the Orthodox monks hunted and forced to convert to the Catholic faith. At a small distance, in the nearby village, Ohaba, there is the oldest water mill, still working, of the Country of Fagaras. You can see the way in which it works and the hospitable owners will offer you a coffee or a tea. Going on the way to Sibiu, the last break will be at Carta, where there is the only ruin of a Cistercian Monastery in Romania, dating from the first half of the 13thcentury.


At Sibiu, the main destination, you’ll visit the historical center of the most important settlement of the Transylvanian Saxons. The old walls and towers can be still seen nowadays. They surrounded the medieval city to protect it from the enemy invasions. The architecture, like in the other medieval cities of Transylvania, is a Western European one, a German architecture. The main attractions are, besides the pedestrian and narrow streets, characteristic for the old medieval cities: Piata Mare (the Great Square) with the Town hall and Brukental Museum, The Council Tower, on the top of which you can admire the whole view of the city, the Small Square, the Ursuline Nun’s Church, the Lies Bridge, the Evangelic Cathedral, the Orthodox Cathedral.

On the way back to Brasov, we will stop to see by outside Fagaras Citadel, the best preserved citadel from eastern Europe.
