Sighisoara

Situated on the Târnava Mare River, in the eastern half of Transylvania in Romania, the formerly Saxon city of Sighisoara (German: Schäßburg; Hungarian: Segesvár) is one of the region’s most beautiful cities.

Consisting of an upper- and a lower-city, the upper-city is actually a castle, sitting on a 72m high peak, surrounded by a protective wall with 14 towers; during the Middle Ages the castle was impregnable.

Sibiu

Located the central part of Romania, in the Transylvania region, in the foreground of the South-Carpathian Mountains, Sibiu (German: Hermannstadt; Hungarian: Nagyszeben) was considered to be the capital of the Saxons of Romania.

Developing as the region’s educational and cultural centre, the city once again achieved international recognition when it became “Europe’s Cultural Capital’ in 2007.

Brasov

Located in the central part of Romania, in the Transylvania region, Brasov (German: Kronstadt; Hungarian: Brassó) is one of Transylvania’s most picturesquely situated cities, at the junction of the South- and East-Carpathian Ranges.

Romania’s second largest city after Bucharest, it is traditionally the region’s cultural and commercial centre, with an ever increasing tourist trade in recent times.

Bucharest

Located in the south of the country, on the Romanian-Plain, Bucharest is Romania’s capital, as well as its economic and cultural centre.

The inner-city today is a mixture of buildings, reflecting the Secessionist, Communist and Modern architectural forms – its appearance and architecture reflecting two historic periods.

Bran Castle

Bran Castle (German: Törzburg; Hungarian: Törcsvár) is located in the central part of Romania, on the border between Transylvania and Wallachia regions, about 30 km south from the city of Brasov, in the village of Bran. The medieval castle of Bran is one of the most popular castles not only in Romania but also in the Eastern European region.
