This is a spectacular and different tour in Transylvania, offering you the chance to visit the famous Turda salt mine, the fortress of Alba Iulia (where King Ferdinand and Queen Mary were crowned), and some of the most scenic mountain villages where the traditions still play an important role.

Not to be missed also are the Corvin castle, built in gothic style, the beautiful Sibiu city, and Brasov.
