On this trip you will first visit the Saxon fortified church of Biertan. An overlooked detail about the church is the drawing of a Joker that seems to support the burden of the ceiling. It is not known who painted it and why, but people say it could be a representation of evil or a revenge of craftsmen who worked at the church of Biertan and were dissatisfied with the final payment. The Saxon fortified church of Biertan, Transylvania, is a UNESCO world heritage site and the village was one of the first saxon settlements in Transylvania.  From here you’ll be visiting the citadel of Sighisoara, home of Vlad Dracul, the father of Vlad the Impaler (aka Dracula) and supposedly his birthplace. Next on your day tour we’ll be cruising towards Rupea fortress, the place where Decebal the last Dacian king took his life, not to be caught by Romans. The fortress is also connected to the last Prince of Bathory, who was a cousin of countess Bathory Elizabeth (the blood countess). Towards the end of your day tour in Transylvania we’ll be visiting the village & Saxon fortified church of Viscri. Prince Charles owns a house here and it’s his favorite place in Romania.

You’ll have the opportunity to witness the history of Turda salt mine, one of the most important mines in the Austro-Hungarian Empire. Salt has been used since antiquity for preserving food, spicing it, and for treating various diseases by immersing it in salt water. Let’s be honest, it was never more valuable than gold but it was valuable through its properties and the difficulty with which it was obtained. In Turda salt was being extracted by humans, using hammers, axes and shovels, no explosives were used. Next in your day tour we’ll visit Alba Iulia fortress. The genesis of Alba Iulia goes back to 5000 b.c. It was one of the most flourishing cities in ancient Dacia, and after the Romans conquered it they brought new technology with them. Thus, the archaeological finds at Apulum (Alba Iulia) have revealed that there have been numerous monumental, public and private buildings, craftsmen associations, luxury merchants’ houses equiped with hypocaustum (undergorund heating floor) adorned with polychrome mosaics,  public baths with pools, bathtubs, meeting rooms, a gymnasium and a library. Also they had large aqueducts to bring drinking water from far away.
