Votre voyage jour après jour

Day 1- BUCHAREST > BRASOV - Arrival in Roumania
After arrival, you will not have the time to visit Bucharest,as your first sleepover is in the heart of Transylvania in Brasov.
On leaving the capital you will head North towards Brasov(E60)) through the valley of the Princes, as they often called the Prahova Valley. Prahova Valley is famous for its mountain scenery and is also the ancient place of refuge for the royal family of Romania.
You will  have the time to visit the Peles Castle. Build as King Carol I summer residence from 1873-1883 in a spectacular German Renaissance style, it is considered one of the most beautiful castles in Europe.
Accommodation in a charming 3 *** hotel in Brasov, located downtown, overlooking the main square, the main attraction of the city.

 

Day 2- BRASOV > BRAN > RASNOV > BRASOV  - In the heart of the Carpathians

After breakfast, a tour of the city of Brasov is a must.
This medieval town, built by the Saxons, was the southern gateway of Transylvania. Its centre still looks as if the Saxsons never moved out. With one of the largest and most intact medieval town centres in Romania, and one of its finest town squares, Brasov is a superb place to brush up on your architectural vocabulary and feast your eyes.

We advise you to go towards Poiana Brasov to reach the village of Bran where you can visit its world famous castle, the so called "Castle Dracula". Perched high on a rock, this most famous castle in Romania imposes its romantic silhouette on the  forest background.

On your way back to Brasov, you can visit the citadel of Rasnov. Build by the Teutonic Knights as a peasant citadel in the 13th century ,it was one of the main Burzenland’s defences against the Turkish and Tatar invasions. While there is no longer a huge amount left to see of the structure itself, which is less well-preserved than Bran, the ethnographic folk art exhibits help bring it to life and the views are stupendous.
You will return to Brasov, where you will spend the night in the same hotel.

Day 3- BRASOV > SIGHISOARA - The Saxon Heart of Transylvania

Early in the morning you will depart for Sighisoara. On your way we strongly advise you to visit the village of Prejmer.
The massively fortified Church of the Holy Cross is its highlight. Build by the Teutonic knights(from 1218)to strengthen the defence of this eastern border region against the ever present threat from the steppe warriors, it was further massively fortified by the Saxons against further invasions in 1421,to include some 270 rooms inside on three or four levels for the villagers’ refuge in case of attack or siege. It houses the oldest altar in Romania as well as a small museum. It has been on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1999.

On the  road to Sighisoara, you will be able to discover an authentic country, Transylvanian heartlands full of interest, with wild mountains and quiet rural backroads.  There are also some fortified churches and fascinating Saxon villages such as the one of  Viscri, a World Heritage of UNESCO.

Your destination, the romantic, picturesque town of Sighisoara is the only inhabited fortified citadel in Romania, and one of only a few in Europe. A World Heritage Site by UNESCO the huddle of  sloping roofs ,pastel facades and cobbled streets is so redolent of the Middle Ages that even the communist regime was sensible enough to leave its centre well alone. 
You will spend the night in a 3 *** hotel nearby the city centre.
 

Day 4 - SIGHISOARA > VAMA - Transition in Moldova

In the morning, you will have the opportunity to do a walking tour around one of the finest medieval town in Romania-Sighisoara.
Rebuilt after a fire in 1556 on earlier foundations the famous Clock Tower(Turnul cu Ceas)features a series of exterior figurines representing the days of the week. The four small towers around the spire indicate that Sighisoara had ius gladii(the power to pass death sentences)in medieval times.
The small torture room at the base of the tower was once the military prison.
The Tower, which up to 1556 housed the city council, is now a permanent home to the Museum of City History.
You can also visit The house with the Stag, the Vlad Dracul House-probably home to Vlad Dracul and the birthplace of his son, Vlad the Impaler,the Monastery Church,the School on the Hill.
Next you will cross the Eastern Carpathians and the land of the Sicilians, the descendants of settlers from Hungarian Transylvania.
On the way you will experience unforgettable encounters with the artisans in the village of Corund, famous throughout Romania for its ceramics.
Just 10 km to the north is one of the region’s most unusual sights-Praid Salt Mine.The salt is some 3 km thick in places, and there is said to be enough here to supply all Europe for  more than 100 years.
You will make your way towards Moldova by a journey through the Bicaz Gorge, one of the most beautiful natural phenomena in Romania.
In the evening you will arrive at Vama, a village located in the heart of the painted monasteries of Bukovina.
You will stay in a traditional home where you can sample the local specialties.

 

Day 5 - BUKOVINA - The land of the monasteries

Anyone interested in pottery might like to stop off at Marginea, where a workshop on the main road to Sucevita displays the traditional, unmechanised techniques used in the village for centuries.
By late afternoon, return to Vama to dine and sleep. The owners will show you how villagers painted traditional eggs for Easter.

Day 6 - VAMA > VADI IZEI - Welkome to Maramures

You will leave Bukovina to head for Maramures a legendary region of Romania which still retains the authenticity of the past times.

In this world, a land of pride and heartbreak, hidden valleys and centuries-old rural ways of life still beats the heart of Maramures.
From one village to another you will discover fantastic "wooden cathedrals", old farms, pretty houses and appreciate the warmth and friendliness of the local people.
The Iza Valley is known for its pretty villages with their wooden churches. Even more than elsewhere in Maramures ,this is a place that makes you feel as if you have slipped back in time 100 years or so and one of the rare places where men and women still wear traditional dress every Sunday.
You will stay overnight in the village of Vadu Izei ,in a small, traditional guest-house with 6( all wood-carved) guest rooms.

 

Day 7 - Maramure - The "Wood Civilization"

In this region, you will have the pleasure to encounter a succession of villages: Barsana -a village dating to 1326 where a monastery features two wooden churches, then Rozavlea(whose own wooden church dates back to 1720, the Wooden Church on the Hill at Ieud(build in 1364)which is the oldest in Maramures ,and retains beautiful paintings done in 1782 ...
Your Maramures discovery will not be complete without visiting the "Merry Cemetery" in Sapanta, one of the most amazing sites in Romania, where all the crosses and headstones are brightly painted with happy scenes from the dead person’s life, complete with jolly epitaphs.

A few miles away from Sapanta is the town of Sighetu Marmatiei.
Simply known as Sighet the town still retains the atmosphere of the trading cities of the Austro-Hungarians with long avenues and pleasant central square, Piata Libertatii, near which lies the Maramures Ethnographic Museum, the Memorial to the Victims of Communism, the house-museum of Elie Wiesel .
On leaving the town in direction of Baia Mare and Vadu Izei you can find the Ukrainian bazaar, and the so called Village museum-a complex of 30 houses -some from the 14th century-set around a 17th-century church.

Your next destination, the city of Cluj-Napoca, is a town of amazing contrasts.

Your accommodation will be in a 3 *** hotel, located in the historic centre of the town.

 

Day 9 - CLUJI NAPOCA > GANESTI - An exceptional wine country
