Today you’ll get an overview on the cultural mixture of Transylvania, shaped by over a thousand years of common history. After will continue with a visit to a spectacular and quite unique site, due to its strange form: a huge subterranean cave carved in salt, a former salt-mine turned into a tourist attraction. Hundreds of metres of galleries open into halls the size of cathedrals, one of them 90 metres tall, with a lake at the bottom. The sights inside the mine are otherworldly, attracting artists in search of spectacular views.
Our journey takes us through the picturesque Transylvanian villages seemingly frozen in time, where countryside dwellers still work using traditional methods. The tour of Transylvania continues with a history lesson in the heart of Sighisoara fortress – monument included on the UNESCO world heritage list. Walking up the winding cobble stone streets lined with historical buildings, we reach the Clock Tower, a symbol of the city, atop of which you can admire the breathtaking views. The Tower shelters a museum of medieval weapons and the chamber of torture. After visiting the tower we’ll climb the three hundred wooden steps up to the Church-on-the-hill, built in the XIV century.
