  • Prejmer has one of the most comprehensively fortified and perhaps the most spectacular of all the region’s churches – now on the UNESCO’s World Heritage List. Access is via an automated ticket...

  • Wonderful UNESCO protected citadel. Very interesting to read the story and visit the site. When you see the old school, take the stairs to the right and climb until the end to reach the internal part of the wall. It is not signed anywhere so seems no one knows about it. Really interesting seeing the internal part of the fortress
  • My personal favorite fortified church in Transylvania. Very impressive insights of medieval architecture. The story of the German community protecting themselves against Ottoman invaders is interesting but sensing it within the walls is a unique experience. Absolutely recommended!
