Great place. However road on Brasov (Dacia) side is closed for road work. You must use the Sighsoara side (Binesti) and the beginning of that road is closed with no indications for the detour. The detour entrance is two hundred metres on the main road...More

Viscri might be off the beaten path and I must admit I had second thoughts when we diverted from our route to Sighisoara and were still driving on country roads after about a half an hour. It's a longer drive than what it seems due...More

Preserved and maintained extremely well. A self guided tour takes you through the grounds, the church and even the tower for a great vista of the grounds and surrounding countryside. Well worth a visit.

This fortified Saxon Church is simply stunning. Viscri and this church are simply unmissable, a must do for any visit to Romania.

The Viscri church is amazing, a tranquil sanctuary which also provided the villagers with much needed protection in earlier times. It still hosts a monthly service, in German of course. It is beautiful inside, simple & practical. Please visit if you can

Wonderful church in a wonderful town, 100% worth seeing. The entire village is a UNESCO heritage site, and thus has been generally untouched by modernity - no paved roads, no modern architecture, etc. Entrance to the church is cheap, 5 lei per ticket for students,...More

A very nice fortified church, with a little museum inside the fortification. You can also climb into the tower. The rural site is also quite nice, but the road to Viscri is from hell (the one from bunesti) with A LOT of HUGE potholes and...More

Nice place to visit. This is where prince charles hangs out. At least that what the locals say. A place to unwind.

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... More
