Morning pick up from your hotel in Sibiu. For hundreds of years, this walled town located in the heart of Transylvania Region, was one of the most powerful and prosperous strongholds in Eastern Europe. Preserving large sections of the medieval walls, as well as the old bastions and defence towers, Sibiu has a distinctly Germanic feeling.
Visit Corvin Castle, also known as the Hunyadi Castle which is one of the most beautiful and well-preserved medieval castles in Transylvania. And maybe spooky to. Hunyadi Castle was the residence of the brave Transylvanian Governor – John Hunyadi, who left this castle to his son Mathias Corvinus. The castle built in 15th century is the biggest medieval castle in Romania and it’s also considered to be one of the most haunted places in the world.
The castle integrates various architectural styles, because of the presence of some military innovations. It was meant to be not only a luxurious residence during John Hunyadi’s reign, but also a strategic point to defend the region against various attacks.
Next important stop of the tour, is Alba Iulia Fortress. Having its origins back in 2nd century from Roman time, the city of Alba Iulia offers a journey through the history of Transylvania from ancient times to medieval and modern days. We’ll visit the ruins of the Roman town, the medieval fortifications, the modern fortifications made in Vauban style, the Catholic Cathedral – the oldest from Transylvania and the Reunion Cathedral which commemorates the Union of all Romanian provinces in a single country.
In the afternoon we will come back to Sibiu.
