Our trip begins at the place where Vlad "Dracula" Ţepeş was born - Sighişoara Citadel. Over the course of more than two hours, we will visit the house where people believe the former ruler was born. After a walk on The School Street, we will continue our journey to the Church on the Hill. We will then descend into the fortress and visit two of the most beautiful fortified towers in Transylvania - the Clock Tower and the Tailor's Tower.
Walking through Sighișoara
Nothing can be more beautiful than a walk through an ancient medieval fortress. And Sighisoara Citadel makes this experience even more enjoyable! For an hour you can have a coffee at one of the beautiful medieval bistros or visit the small craft shops.
Dracula's traditional lunch
Transylvanian cuisine is known not only in Romania but all over the world. Traditional products such as soups, marshmallows, donuts, bread, pickles, brandy, and wine are almost every day on the table of any genuine Transylvanian inhabitant.
The Fortified Church Malancrav
Before we leave these beautiful lands we will stop at the Fortified Church in Mălâncrav. Built in the 14th century, it is mostly known for its gothic murals that are over 600 years old. Built in Gothic architecture, these masterpieces describe biblical events like Genesis or the Passion of Jesus.
St. Margaret's Church
We reach now Mediaș, one of the oldest settlements in Transylvania. From our itinerary, we can not miss the St. Margaret's Church, built in 1488 in Gothic style. Few know that its tower, nearly 70 meters high, is the second inclined tower, in size, after the famous tower of Pisa.
The legend says that for a short period, the renowned ruler Vlad „Dracula” Țepeș, was a prisoner, in the town of Mediaș. We will visit the cell where the bloody ruler is supposed to be held hostage on his way to Visegrad, in Hungary, where he was then imprisoned for 12 years!
"Emil Mureșan" spider web art gallery
Our journey in the world of "Dracula" will end in one of the most original art galleries. In the "Nature and Fantasy" gallery of the artist Emil Mureșan we will meet some of the scariest artworks! His paintings even reached the Book of Records, as the artist was the first to choose to create art using only spider web.
