Enhance your physical strength in the wilderness and then rejuvenate the body în a serene and healing atmosphere. Discover the medieval and traditional architecture of the Saxons and Szeklers, the main artisans of the growth of Transylvania during the old times. Taste their savory food, made following recipes that seemed to be forgotten în time.
Drive to Transylvania, crossing the Carpathian Mountains.
We discover at Prejmer one of the most fortified churches from Transylvania, that resisted în time to many conquer attempts. The Lutheran church (UNESCO) was built in the 13th century by the Teutonic knights and then by the Cistercian monks, thus the Burgundy Gothic style. Having 12m tall and 4m thickness of the walls, the stronghold was able to protect the entire village during the sieges.
We're heading North, to Varghis gorge, a spectacular nature reserve with steep limestone walls and 130 caves, home for several bath species. Beside visiting the gorge (including 4 caves), one could go further by doing the via ferrata route open for adrenaline amateurs.
Accommodation în the area at 3* B&B, dinner included (local Szekler cuisine).
Today we get lots of fun by driving fast the bob at Ghimes.
SkyGimes represent a bob route on a rail track. The high speed down drives your adrenaline level at high marks. Take as many courses as you'll be satisfied enough to say "ok, time for lunch, know!". A good moment to try more the local cuisine.
