Prince Charles footsteps from Cluj
Do you know why Prince Charles comes to Romania every year? Because he found here something unique in Europe and maybe in the whole world: pure tradition..
In most of the Transylvanian villages people still live like hundreds of years ago. And not because they are poor of limited, but they preserve something that in other parts of the world died years ago, and most of the people live a modern life without knowing almost nothing about the way their ancestors lived. You will see houses built in traditional style and very well preserved, museums, beautiful churches all of them close to the soul of Prince Charles.

Charles, Prince of Wales was born on 14 November 1948, is the eldest child and heir apparent of Queen Elizabeth II. Charles was born at Buckingham Palace as the first grandchild of King George VI and Queen Elizabeth.
Prince Charles is in love with Romania, he loves the nature, the traditional houses that remained in the same way and were not changed for the new and modern constructions.
Our journey starts, same as Prince Charles’s journey started, with the city of Cluj-Napoca, a gorgeous cultural city in Transylvania. We will visit the main cultural and religious attractions, like museums and churches. After our great cultural experience in Cluj-Napoca we are heading to Sibiu, with one stop at Turda Salt Mine to visit its famous museum and see how people were managing to obtain salt in the past.
In our way to Sibiu we are also going to stop in Alba Iulia to visit the Alba Carolina Fortress, the largest and best preserved fortress in Romania, which was built between 1714 and 1738.It’s a magic place that can make you feel like in a real medieval movie.
Once arrived in Sibiu our main tourist destinations are the Big Square and the Small Square, some of the beautiful churches, and the Council Tower, one of the most popular monuments in Sibiu, to see a gorgeous panoramic view of the city.
On our 4th day of the journey we are going to have a great day in Miclosoara, a village loved by Prince Charles where we will find a great atmosphere, have the chance to taste traditional and delicious dishes and see how people live in a traditional village.
The footsteps of Prince Charles are leading us to Viscri, a village near Brasov where the Prince owns a house. Viscri is a touristic village, with locals that really care about tradition, by keeping the houses in the same way they were, by opening family businesses to help the village and being really kind with the tourist that are coming to visit their village with the main attraction, a fortified church, part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site since 1999.
Romania is a country with beautiful monuments and gorgeous views, this being one of the reasons why Prince Charles appreciates it and keeps coming several times during the year. We continue our beautiful trip to different attractions that impressed Prince Charles. Our next destination is Sighisoara, the best preserved medieval Romanian town, Biertan a village inhabited by Saxons, where we will visit the fortified church of Biertan being also part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site.
This journey is an opportunity to see the places visited by Prince Charles, and see what impressed him, but also to see the amazing Romania.
