Viscri Fortified Church and village
One of the most famous and authentic villages of Transylvania, Viscri is a travel destination in its own.
Its pastoral landscapes, traditional houses, local artisans, the support of the Foundation Mihai Eminescu Trust and Prince Charles' visits have transformed this old village into one of the trendiest attractions in the region.
The white fortified church, included in the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, is one of the must-visit attractions in Transylvania, a more than worth the bumpy detour from the main national road.
First mentioned at the beginning of the 15th century, but dating some hundreds of years back, the church was built and fortified in several stages, conserving partially its bastions, towers and fortification walls. One of the former towers is now a small museum with traditional objects belonging to the Saxon community.
