A Kick around Monasteries and Castles

6 days tour

Crossing the Carpathians, this tour takes you to two different and equally interesting regions of Romania: medieval Transylvania and rustic, traditional Bukovina. The tour takes in the royal castle in Sinaia, the medieval towns of Brasov and Sibiu, the fortress town of Sighisoara, Bukovina’s world famous painted monasteries, as well as natural wonders such as Bicaz Gorges or Doamnei Cliffs (the latter can be usually reached by road only in July – October). Apart from that, the tour provides a unique opportunity to witness age old traditions such as pottery and egg painting.

A tour that will give you a good introduction to Transylvania, its towns and fortifications (including Sibiu, Sighisoara and Brasov plus Bran, coined as Dracula’s Castle), as well as Bukovina, with its Carpathian mountain setting and famous, UNESCO-listed, painted monasteries
