Castles of Transylvania


Castles of Transylvania
Transylvania Romania

Transylvania (the land “beyond the forest”), is often known best through Bram Stokers ‘Dracula’ and Patrick Fermors ‘Castles of Transylvania’ and is one of the great cultural landscapes of Europe, while yet still relatively undiscovered. The population is a mysterious ethnic jigsaw of Romanians, Magyars, Germans and Gypsies. With our planned route, you will cycle along the spectacular Carpathian Mountains with splendid views, the lowland valleys with its medieval looking villages left untouched by time, and lush forests which shelter the local deer, boars and even the more reclusive bears and wolves. On some of the days, you meet only lone oxen drawn carts, occasional horseback riders and cross paths with herds of driven cows or find buffalo cooling off in the rivers. You should hope to wander in upon a street wedding, where you find German Blasmusik with Romanian texts, and Gypsy tunes, and lots of Tuika (plum brandy), all very part of Transylvania as much as the garlic. You may visit some of the numerous German/Saxon church castles along the way, with their beautiful Renaissance and Baroque altars and pulpits. In most cases, you have to get the keys from a nearby farmhouse! You will see the castles of Bran, Sighisoara (UNESCO Cultural Heritage) and Fagaras as well as the very beautiful medieval Saxon towns of Brasov, Medias and Sibiu the ‘Cultural Capital of Europe 2007.’
