Enought time to visit Sighishoara from Cluj to Brasov

We will drive from Cluj to Brasov. Is it feasable to stop in Sighishoars and then continue on to Brasov in one day?

We will spend about 5 days in the Brasov area and could backtrack to Sighishoara as a day trip.

1. Re: Enought time to visit Sighishoara from Cluj to Brasov

yes it is feasible to stop in sighisoara , cluj brasov is 272 k"m 4-5 hours on drive .

so you can left cluj early morning make a few hours stop in sighisoara and

then continiu to brasov .

but , you do not need 5 days to brasov , take one/two days from that time and

visit sibiu and sighisoara .

you can stop for day/two in sighisoara and from there mak day trip to sibiu .

Stop to Sighisoara on your way to Brasov . I advise you to spend 3 days in Brasov and 2 days in Sibiu .

Between Sighisoara - Brasov and Sibiu there are fortified saxon churches. Since you have a car I advise you to go see Harman, Prejmer , Biertan . You can stop at the fortress in Fagaras .

Go see Bran and Peles castles

Thank you. How will this work. Cluj to Sibiu in one day. That means we have to drive through Alba Julia.

Stay in Sibiu area for two days, maybe in a village.

From Sibiu drive to Sighishoara. I hope there is a connecting road. My map does not show one. Then on to Brasov. This measn leave Sibiu, visit Sighishiara and arrive Brasov all in one day. Is that too much?

Or Cluj - visit Sighishoara and drive to Sibiu in one day. That backtracks a bit.

We plan to see all the places you mentioned. I work with the idea that it takes one day to see each place.

Your second plan is good . Since you leave from Cluj try to include a stop for 2 hours at Turda salt mine near Cluj. Is amazing.

I have been drivig in Romania for a long time, and I know most of the roads by heart.

Getting an average speed (even if no trafic) of 70 kms/hour means speeding over 90 kms/hour in villages and over 100 outside. Do you think it's prudent, especially in winter time? I wouldn't do that, but I'm not the person involved.

The idea of itinerary Cluj - Turda - Alba Iulia - Sibiu - Sighisoara - Brasov is the best!

Thank you all. The more ideas I get the better choices I can make.

I will pose my next question on the Sinaia forum.

If you have time when you drive on the E60 from Sighisoara to Brasov, stop in Saschiz to visit the Saxon church, one of the four UNESCO world Heritage Sites in the area, and also take a walk to the medieval citadel overlooking the village. Coffee and toilet stop at Hanul Cetatii in the centre of the village (next to the town hall) before you continue to Brasov.
