A website that makes you want to go to Romania. We organize tours to Romania and we offer you tons of information on Romania.
Transylvanian Cities tour is a self guided tour including all important cities in Transylvania (regions of Banat and Crisana included) such as Brasov, Sinaia, Sighisoara, Cluj-Napoca, Oradea, Arad, Timisoara, Alba Iulia, Targu Mures and Sibiu.
The start of the tour depends on how you get in Transylvania, but it doesn't’t really mater since the tour is circular on the map. As default, we will start our itinerary proposal with Brasov, but again, you can start wherever you please. You can find detailed information about means of transport, hotels and restaurants in the Transylvania – Cities tour guidebook downloadable for free HERE.
Day 1: Brasov - The first destination of our tour is Brasov where you should have at least one full day to visit. We recommend you the following attractions: The old town (Black Church, Council Square, Town Museum, Orthodox Cathedral, Schei Gate), Panoramic Tampa, Strada Sforii (the narrowest street in Europe), the Brasov Citadel (a 16th Century fortress), the Schei district and Poiana Brasov.
Day 2: Sinaia - In Sinaia, a must see is the Peles Castle so this should be the first place to visit. If you have enough time you might also visit Pelisor Castle, right next to Peles Castle and the Sinaia Monastery.
Day 3: Sighisoara - Sighisoara is a wonderful medieval town. It is best to walk to all sights since the town is fairly small. Best things to see: Sighisoara Citadel (world heritage) including the Clock Tower, Monastery Church, Weapon Museum, Church on the Hill, Vlad Dracul House (the house where Vlad Tepes was born). You may also want to take a 30 km trip from Sighisoara to the Fortified Church of Biertan but this would probably add one extra day to your trip, unless you are really fast in visiting the attractions within Sighisoara City. Very doable if you rent a car.
Day 4: Targu Mures - It is said that the nicest people in Romania live in Targu Mures. You may want to visit the Cultural Palace, Orthodox Cathedral, City Fortress and the Reformed Church built in 17th Century. A must is a taste of the “palinca de prune”, a local famous plum brandy.
Day 5: Cluj-Napoca -Thing to see: St. Michael Church, the Union Square, the Teleki and Banffy Palaces, the Mirror Street, the Museum Square and the Botanical Garden.
Day 6: Oradea -Visit the Ţării Crişurilor Museum, The Church with Moon (Biserica cu Luna) and the State Theatre.
Day 7: Arad - Visit Arad Orthodox Cathedral and Fagarov Castle.
Day 8: Timisoara - Visit Victory Square, Union Square, Liberty Square, and the Village Museum.
Day 9: Alba Iulia - Visit the City Centre and Alba Iulia Fortress.
Day 10: Sibiu - Visit the Old Town including the Stairs Passage, Huet Square, Brukenthal Museum. Also Astra Museum, the largest open air museum in Europe in a nice place to go.
Day 11: Back to Brasov
