Quaint Transylvanian Houses

I’ve already mentioned my love for the traditional Transylvanian villages, houses and big gates. Here are some of those typical Saxon-style houses. Hope you enjoy!

Fagaras and Beyond Day 1 – Viscri

From Sighisoara we headed towards Brasov. In the village Bunesti we took a right towards the village of Viscri.

VISCRI

A village, like many others in this area, with a Saxon fortified church. Yet, unlike the many other such churches, this structure is part of UNESCO World Heritage, is often considered the most impressive of the churches in this area, and the Viscri village is the perfect place to stay a while. Many of the traditional Saxon houses and farms have been recently renovated, offering bed and breakfast type accommodation, renowned Romanian hospitality and delicious food made with locally grown produce. The church has also been renovated, offering a museum, a tour and a climb into the church tower. And if you’ve got your bike, there are bike paths over the rolling hills waiting for you to discover other picturesque villages.
