Cheia mountain road – More than 100 km way, mostly curved and with a spectacular view, crossing the Oriental Carpathians.

Brasov City – the location of the city at the intersection of trade routes linking the Ottoman Empire and Western Europe.

Stroll around the old Town Hall Square where you can admire colorfully painted and ornately trimmed baroque structures. Take a peek inside the Black Church, the largest gothic church in Romania. Its name derives from damage caused by the Great Fire of 1689, when flames and smoke blackened its walls. The interior is impressive and well-kept and houses one of the largest organs in Eastern Europe.

The Sighisoara Medieval Citadel Considered one of Europe’s beauties, Sighisoara is a monument city protected by UNESCO since 1999 and included on the list of the world patrimony.

In the heart of Transylvania, a fortress built in the 12th century will captivate you like no other city in Romania. The narrow streets, the charming buildings, the symbolic towers or the medieval churches
