Delve into the coolest underground theme park in the world and visit the star-shaped Alba Carolina Fortress in a one-day trip from Cluj-Napoca.

In the morning, your tour guide will pick you up from the hotel and you will leave for Alba Iulia - a fortress-city located in the heart of Transylvania, that takes you back in time with its Roman vibe. Apulum, by its Latin name, was the largest Roman castrum, and it had a tremendous strategic importance. Over time, the city was marked by both German and Hungarian settlers, which transformed it into a hotspot of cultural diversity. The mixture of Baroque and Romanesque churches, Roman Citadels, and even a Babylonian building is bound to charm you.

The Alba Carolina Fortress is an impressive hexagram-shaped fortification surrounded by 12 kilometers of walls. The 6 entrances are decorated with impressive Baroque elements, unique in the European military architecture. The sensation of the past is backed up by the Austrian guards in their vintage clothes who protect the citadel. Initially, the fortification was built as a Roman fort, during the Middle Ages it was turned into a Fortress, and later it became a Vauban Citadel with bastions.

Our next destination is Rimetea, a fairy-tale village sheltered by the majestic Apuseni Mountains, dominated by a wild combination of white and green. Here, you will enjoy a delicious lunch.

We will then leave from Rimetea in order to reach Turda. Here, you will find a salt mine that was formed more than 13 million years ago, has been used for over 2,000 years, and has been turned into an underground theme park. Hundreds of meters of galleries open into a huge room carved in salt, with a height of 90 meters, in the middle of which you will find a lake. If you are in search of spectacular images to capture with your camera, this is the place to go. The glass elevator provides an astonishing overview of the mine, and you can even take a boat ride on the lake, play mini golf, tennis, or ride the Ferris wheel. All year long, the temperature is constant in between 10 and 12 degrees Celsius, and the air has proven therapeutic proprieties, especially for the respiratory system.

After touring the Turda Salt Mine, we will head back to Cluj.

For those that seek a fairytale image of Transylvania, this day trip will reveal the story of medieval villages surrounded by thick forests, of majestic fortified churches, and of citadels that are inhabited to this day. A visit to Sighisoara is perhaps the best way to experience time travel. And no holiday can be complete without experiencing a little bit of the local life. A visit in the heart of a gypsy community will teach us about their traditions and about crafts that have been long gone from today’s world.

Our tour will starts in the morning when we will pick you up from your hotel and take a two-hour road trip to Medias. We will take a short walking tour of the city and get a glimpse of the Citadel of Light and of the beautiful medieval buildings, most of which were built in the 15th century. We will then head to Biertan in order to visit the Biertan Fortified Church, a monument included in the UNESCO Patrimony as part of Transylvania’s Villages with Fortified Churches. The church is surrounded by thick medieval walls which were built in the 15th century, and the front door is equipped with 19 locks and bolts.

Our next stop is in Sighisoara. The Sighisoara Medieval Citadel is the only inhabited citadel in Europe, and it is surrounded by 9 towers, with The Clock Tower being the most important of all. The Clock Tower was destroyed by a fire, but it was rebuilt in the 16th century, and it is now home to a history museum that includes a torture chamber. The

The Sighisoara Citadel was built in the 12th century, and it had a significant role throughout Transylvania’s history, Sighisoara being one of its 7 independent cities. In Sighisoara, we will also visit the Hill Church, a holy site that you can reach by climbing 175 wooden steps, as well as several other buildings such as the Stag House and a Venetian House.

If we were to describe Transylvania in one word, we would choose diverse. This historical land was home to numerous isolated villages, and we will find their traces of Romanian, Hungarian, Gypsy and German communities, all living in harmony for hundreds of years. Gypsies first settled in Romania more than 800 years ago, after being forced away from their lands by the Mongol invasion. Today, we will visit an isolated community of Gypsies who earn their living through various crafts such as coppersmithing.

Because they are a slightly isolated community, the access is permitted only to those accompanied by someone they trust.

On our way back to Cluj we will take a different route in order to explore some of the stunning landscape of Transylvania. We will be back in Cluj by night, the duration of the trip being affected by traffic.
