[Romania] Discovering Sibiu’s regions – #3: The Târnavelor Region

That we love Sibiu is no longer a secret. Neither is that we love the whole county of Sibiu, with all its history, culture and diversity. And what’s not to love about it – beautiful landscapes, traditions that are still being kept, houses with old and well preserved architecture, villages with so many stories to be told around the fire, rich and diverse cuisine, rural life at its best. In a world that’s going too global, these villages keep to their local diversity.

We’ve been living in Sibiu for quite some years now and we have constantly been in search of true taste.

[Events in Sibiu] Musical Tasting – music, food and socializing

Some might say that Sibiu is a cultural city, with lots of events happening almost every day of the week. I wouldn’t argue with that, but this city still lacks some socializing, after work events for people who are not in the mood anymore to spend their nights in dark clubs surrounded by mostly teenagers and students.

[Romania] Family weekend in Nucet, Sibiu

One might say that winter is the season to stay mostly inside and dream of summer’s warm and sunny days.

[Romania] The Escape of the Lole – a tradition with Medieval roots

Every year, in the last Sunday of January, Agnita becomes the home of a very special event and of one of the few authentic and original traditions still standing in Romania. It’s not something about which you hear too much in the news, but living in Sibiu you get to know things after a while. It’s the first time we got the chance to see live this beautiful tradition and we’re already waiting for next year’s edition.

Hiking the Făgăraș Mountains ridge is, let’s say, one of the main goals of any true hiker and mountains passionate from Romania (although nowadays you meet mostly foreigners on the peaks). The Făgăraș Mountains are the highest in Romania, with heights reaching 2500m and the ridge is the longest in the country – about 90 kilometers.

[Romania] Bacon and Red Onions at Cristian Fortified Church

Mid-November, when normally we would begin our winter hibernation, we still found enough energy to go out of the house and enjoy a special brunch organized by My Transylvania. They organize the open-air brunches in the rural areas around Sibiu, mostly during warm season, starting with the end of spring, throughout the summer and ending with the first cold days of the autumn.
