Transylvanian Brunch & Sighisoara
April 25, 2015| Euro 45
Today we are going to participate at one of the country’s most ambitious gastronomic projects: Transylvanian Brunch. These kind of culinary events have been designed to help local communities present their products and traditional dishes and attract tourists to the area. We will get the chance to discover Daia, a small Transylvanian village with a superb Gothic church dating back to the 13th century and the friendly and welcoming people who live here. At lunch we will enjoy a huge variety of dishes, all of them homemade and grown in the local gardens.
In the afternoon, we will depart for Sighisoara, one of Europe’s few inhabited medieval citadels.The city was founded by German colonists in the 13th century and placed strategically on the top of a hill to protect it from the invading enemy troops. Most of the fortification was kept intact and armed towers still guard the city. The Clock Tower, the former Benedictine monastery, the Lutheran Church from the upper part of the city, the narrow streets, but also the supposed birthplace of Count Dracula, give the town its enchanting medieval atmosphere. We will visit the museum inside of the Clock Tower, which hosts a medieval clock mechanism that is based on small wooden statues, representing Roman gods, who move every night.
In the evening we will return to Cluj.
