SIBIU – RASINARI – PALTINIS – SIBIU – TRANSFAGARASAN
A Saxon build city, Europe’s cultural capital in 2007, the 8th most idyllic city of Europe by Forbes magazine and a must see for any traveler who comes to Transylvania. If you are interested in culture, this is the place for you: Brukenthal Palace, Astra village museum, the Lutheran cathedral, you’ll be surrounded and submerged in history. Bring comfortable shoes for its narrow rock paved streets.
In the morning
In the morning we’ll enjoy a coffee in the main square of Sibiu old town or “little Vienna” as it was known, followed by a visit to the outdoor Astra village museum known for its traditional style houses and wooden churches; the living traditional village of Rasinari awaits us for lunch, then fresh air and a walk reaching 1440m altitude, the highest resort in Romania, , Paltinis.
We’re reaching higher grounds in the second day, 2000m altitude by crossing Transfagarasan road, which was proclaimed by Top Gear show the “best road in the world” for its steep hairpin turns, long S-curves and sharp descends, an attraction and a challenge for anyone addicted to driving vehicles. Bilea lake is a glacier lake with access from Transfagarasan road, known as a starting point to various climbing tracks and routes in Fagaras mountains.
Sibiu and surroundings area tour was great for me. I had two days to spend in Sibiu and around and chose to do it using Maria and Alex as guides. One for a day, while the next day the other took over, together offering me a blend of facts, history and curiosity alike. Alex is a good driver and made a safe drive back and forth. The October weather and scenery made it all even better, I highly recommend this time of the year for a visit. Although I was a single tourist, they still accepted my offer and made the tour for me. So, thank you guys for a fun-filled weekend. Keep up the good work!
