I’ve said it before that Sibiu has a lot to offer in terms of events almost all year long, but when something like a Food Culture Festival is happening in town, we have to be there, especially since it’s all about ‘eating local’ – save old tastes and varieties, preserve beautiful cultural landscapes.
The Alma Vii Fortified Church was the last one to visit during our first weekend road trip around the beautiful Saxon villages in the Sibiu county. The church welcomed us from up the hill, right before entering the village.
Biertan is by far the most important symbol of the Saxon villages and of the fortified churches in the Sibiu County, having also been listed on the list of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1993.
Agnita is considered to be the most centered town in Romania. First mentioned in a document in 1280, Agnita is a town known for its traditional crafts, from shoemakers to coopers, from tailors to potters.
According to Lonely Planet, Transylvania is the number one region to visit in 2016, so start packing everyone.
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.
