Living in Sibiu definitely has its good parts. One of them is that, well, Sibiu is almost in the center of Romania which can only be translated in getting faster to any part of the country.

I did mention before that I am quite fascinated about the Evanghelical Fortified Churches in Transylvania, so every time I see one, I have to check it out. It’s rather the way they are built that attracts me, than the simbol they represent for the religion.

The second part of the Wild Carpathia series is now out. A very nice documentary about the beauties of Romania, from when entering the border with Serbia until the Danube flows into the Black Sea and forms an amazing Delta. Enjoy!  

Not too much to visit, but definitely a very nice place to enjoy a warm summer day, in a rather bourgeois environment. This is how I would describe the Bruckental Summer Residence from Avrig.

I like the Fortified Churches of Transylvania so much! I find them one of the most important landmarks of this area of Romania. This time, it’s about the Rasnov fortified church.
