Itinerariu

We drive through the River Olt Valley, visit the Cozia Monastery (14th century). We arrive to Sibiu and spend the afternoon and evening visiting the touristic attractions (Liars' Bridge, the Huet, Large and Small squares, the Evangelical Church, the City Council Tower, the fortications) and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere of this famous medieval city. 
The Biertan fortified church is the first stop of our travel from Sibiu to Sighisoara. Former seat of the Transylvanian Evangelical bishopry, this church with strong fortifications was amongst the first UNESCO listed fortified churches in Romania. Before arriving in Sighisoara we make a short stop in Malancrav - a Saxon village with a beautiful Lutheran church which preserved its old Catholic church paintings. Sighisoara is close and, after the check-in, we take our time to visit this fairy-like citadel, the second UNESCO listed monument of our private tour.
Today we discover in-depth the Saxon villages's history and culture, visiting two UNESCO monuments - the fortified churches of Saschiz and Viscri - and taking our lunch in the remote Viscri village. Late afternoon we'll arrive in Brasov, an old medieval Saxon fortress which is today a vibrant Romanian city. The impressive Gothic Black Church is the main attraction. Touring the remaining walls, towers and gates of the medieval fortress, strolling the Rope Street - the narrowest in Romania - and having dinner at one of the restaurants arround the City Council Square will delight our evening in Brasov. 
We end our 4-days guided private tour with a castle break, visiting the Bran Castle (and discovering the truth behind the Dracula legend) and Peles Castle from Sinaia - founded by the great Romanian king - Charles I, of German ancestry.
