The Saxon villages, the Bran Country, the Piatra Craiului National Park: three hotspots of Transylvanian tourism can be nicely covered in a rather relaxed three days mtb program, as showed by our recent trip with Eva and Christian this June.
The visit at Viscri fortified church, the mtb ride on the bike trails built along the mild slopes of the Transylvanian hills, through forests and meadows, the exquisite accommodation at Casa cu Zorele, the impressive Zarnesti Gorges and the imposing Piatra Craiului National Park, the scenic views over Bucegi from the Bran Country, the familiar atmosphere and the brilliant home-made food at Madam Minerva, our traditional host in Poarta. Sounds like a busy schedule, but it actually wasn’t. Thats one of the beauties of mountain biking, you can cover good amounts of kilometers during one day, moving from one area to another with ease.
And there’s no other place in Romania with such a diversity of interesting places to visit as the South-East of Transylvania, home of the Bran Country and the Saxon Villages and Fortified Churches.
