A very nice video showing some of the beautiful parts of Romania. Cities, mountains, rivers, the Danube Delta, just reasons to come and visit. Enjoy!

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. A very good thing especially when you wake up early on a Sunday morning and don’t want to waste a sunny autumn weekend day. So a visit to the Calnic Peasants Fortress seemed like the best thing to do, especially since the Fortress is only about 50 kilometers far from Sibiu.
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. As we went to visit the Bruckental Summer Residence some weeks ago, we couldn’t have missed the Avrig Fortified Church, which is actually right accorss the road from the palace.
For the last few months, I’ve started spending most of my weekends in Sibiu and discover step by step its beauties. Situated right in the middle of Romania, Sibiu is a city of about 150 000 inhabitants, European Cultural Capital in 2007 and now, in my opinion, one of the most beautiful and well preserved cities in the country.
Last weekend I finally managed to visit The Village Museum in Sibiu. Located in the ‘Dumbrava Sibiului’ National Rezervation, the Village Museum is one of the biggest in Europe, with over 300 buildings and 16 000 traditional objects. Very easy to get to (by bus from Sibiu you get there in about 20 minutes), it’s a great place to spend a day in the middle of the nature and surrounded by Romanian traditions (and all this for only 4 EUR entry fee).
