In the heart of the city are located two of the most important cathedrals: The Ortodox cathedral across from the Opera House, and St Michael’s Church – a catholic cathedral in the center of Unirii Square.
Cluj Napoca has many palaces used today as administrative buildings, such as the City Hall, Palace of the Justice, Finance House and so an. The city has a large range of museums: Art Museum, History Museum, Pharmacy Museum, Ethnographic Museum, Water Museum etc.
We continue our trip to Turda Salt Mine, located 30 km from Cluj Napoca, a real salt mining museum and one of the most visited tourist attraction from Transylvania in the last years.
After this underground experience, we are heading to Alba Carolina Fortress, located in the city of Alba Iulia, on the citadel hill, a special place for Romanians and for the Romanian royal family. Here at Alba Iulia we’ll discover a XVIII century amazing structure in the well known Vauban Style. Inside the fortress is located the Coronation Cathedral, built in 1921, and where a year later in 1922 on 15 October, was held the coronation ceremony of King Ferdinand and Queen Marie, as sovereigns of Grater Romania.
Next morning we start our day in the nature of the Cheile Ramet National Park. After the wild experience of the narrow gorges and beautiful stone arches, we rest for a few minutes at the Ramet monastery, a beautiful and quite place with amazing paintings and warm people.

Next day we discover: Sibiu, the European cultural capital in 2007. We will have enough time to explore the city center with the main squares, the churches and Council Tower for a panoramic view of the city and to enjoy the local food and drinks at one of the chic terraces from the plaza.
Our next destination is Brasov, with the amazing Black Church – the most representative historical monument of the city, the greatest gothic church in Transylvania. Brasov is also the largest city in the mountain resort area, a perfect destination for all seasons.

Today the castle is a museum, a very interesting one, showing most of the Queen Marie’s collection of furniture and art. In 1920 the castle becomes the favorite residence of Queen Marie, she will restore it and transform it into the summer residence of the royal family.
The symbol of the Saxon towns from Transylvania is Sighisoara, our next destination. The citadel of the city is part of UNESCO World Heritage Sites since 1999, and it’s one of the most impressive cities in Romania.
The symbol of the city is the 64 meters high Clock Tower – located in the central part of the citadel. Not far from here we’ll see the house where Vlad The Impaler, commonly known as Dracula, was born.
