Then you shall cross the mountains in Transylvania and visit one of the first fortified churches, initially built by the Teutonic Knights at the beginning of the 13th century, very well restored and kept, included on the UNESCO World Heritage list since 1993. After this you’ll enjoy the nicely preserved architecture of Brasov during a relaxing stroll in the Old City and see the famous Black Church (late 14th century).
