Situated at an important Transylvanian crossroad, Sighișoara has always been a thriving cultural spot. The city has a medieval center, preserved in the most authentic way, over 850 years. Organic relationship established between human habitat and the natural environment is reflected in the very picturesque silhouette of the city, dominating the entire landscape of the river Târnava Mare.
Every year in July tourists are expected in Sighișoara for the annual Medieval Festival. Sighisoara Festival re-creates a medieval atmosphere, completed with troubadour music and costume parades, street entertainers and handicraft displays, open-air concerts and medieval ceremonies, this event offers the chance to immerse yourself in the lore and legends of medieval Transylvania.
The Romanian cuisine is characterized by the cultural heritage of many nations and stands out due to the high quality and abundance of local products. Enjoy for example fresh fish in the Danube Delta, and be sure to taste the truffles available in the Carpathians! The quality and diversity of Romanian wines has dramatically increased to a remarkable level in the last years - embark on a culinary journey of all the senses during your stay in this beautiful country!
There’s nothing like soaking in the local customs and taking a bit of Romania back home. We have an extremely colorful culture – mystical holidays that revolve around the religious calendar, humorous attitude towards the afterlife (The Merry Cemetery in Săpânța) and the most beautiful folk dances.
After a stimulating day of hiking in the woods of Romania, you return to your tent, start a nice campfire with your friends and tell scary stories. Don’t get too scared though, your holiday will be nothing but exciting in the Carpathian Mountains.
The higher or the deeper you drive into the Carpathian wilderness, be warned that there is a slight possibility to find some wild critters on the road. They are harmless, but try to drive carefully.
