All reviews prince charles rural romania small museum main tower at your own risk bad road worth the climb step back in time saxon villages fascinating place horse drawn access road surrounding countryside national road interesting exhibits restoration work worth the trip
Fascinating place, beautiful location but the fortification was closed. On Friday we could not go closer because of the restoration work, on Saturday we could go closer and could read that the church could be opened for visitors if they are a group of at...More
A superb, well conserved UNESCO village.
You can find it very easy from Rupea (between Brasov and Sghisoara), trough Dacia Village on a new tarred road only 8 km.

The most famous one...More
The village of Viscri is very small and the population is (we were told) only about a dozen or so, but it does give you a glimpse into what rural Romania was like and it is one of the best preserved Saxon villages. The small...More
If you are on a road trip in Transylvania, consider visiting a few fortified churches. There are plenty to choose from, but this one is one of the better, beautiful in design and well maintained, and it's on the way between Brasov and Sighisoara. You...More
Arrived after 2pm which is good since the visiting hours are 10-1pm then 2-6pm- I was told the church is closed during that one hour lunch break as does most fortified churches. Went during low season so not that many people. High season is from...More

As the others have stated the road from Bunesti is pretty shoddy, tarmac, but some mega pot holes, although by no means impassable just allow yourself plenty of time. Certainly it was fine in our hire car. if anything the road out from Viscri to Rupea, via Dacia is better. It is a white road (unpaved), but in pretty good condition (if very dusty in dry weather of course)
