Your guide will pick you up at the airport in Bucharest and take you to your accommodation for the night.
The Mansion Boutique Hotel is located in the old center of the capital, a lively place where old and new mix harmoniously.
Prepare for a long walk through the city.
Bucharest, the city of contrasts, will conquer your heart and you will certainly visit it a second time. Bucharest is often called Paris of the East - and not without reason. Walking through the city center, quite a few buildings are reminiscent of the French capital. In the past, this charm was felt even more strongly, until there was a strong earthquake in Bucharest in 1977, which did enormous damage.
We recommend you have dinner at Old Center, Caju or Bistrot Francais.
Good Morning! Have breakfast at your hotel and prepare for a day of discovery!
The colossal Parliament Palace (formerly known as the People's Palace), built by the head of the Communist Party, Nicolae Ceausescu, is the second largest administration building in the world after the Pentagon.
For a quarter of a century (1965-1989), the "Ceauşescu Villa" was the private residence of the Ceauşescu dictator couple and their children. When Nicolae Ceausescu became the first secretary of the central committee in the mid-1960s, he was allowed to move into the representative villa: the approximately 5,000 square meter house included a garden twice as large.
At lunchtime, we recommend eating at Old Center or Caru cu Bere. Caru cu Bere is one of the oldest restaurants in the city, where you can enjoy local cuisine with traditional Romanian music in the background.
Enjoy a long walk along the banks of the Herestrau pond and through the open-air museum.
The village museum is one of the largest open air museums in the Balkans. It was founded by a royal decree in 1936 and covers 15 hectares on the shores of Lake Herastrau. There are more than 60 original houses, farms, windmills, watermills and churches from all historical areas of Romania.

After another hour's drive, you will reach your accommodation in the mountains.
Check in at the new luxury of simplicity. The Inn on Balaban is a living example of the strong desire to preserve the Romanian tradition.

The old stables have been transformed into a kitchen and the old barn into a slow food restaurant: old Transylvanian recipes made from authentic ingredients from local farmers and family businesses.
Behind today's barn restaurant there is a beautiful orchard where you can have lunch or dinner. A path leads from the orchard on a remote road to the fortified church and the village car park.
The village is home to one of the most spectacular Saxon fortress churches, one of the six churches that are a UNESCO World Heritage Site. After dinner, enjoy a guided tour to the church and through the village.
Enjoy a tasty dinner at Gerda!
It smells always good in Gerda's kitchen. Sometimes there is a pan on her stove in which a pumpkin, which took a bath in beaten eggs and flour, sizzles. At the same time, a spicy ram steak caramelizes in the oven, sitting next to a hard polenta on which a garlic sauce rubbed with tomatoes definitely flows.
After dinner, walk back to your accommodation.
Good Morning! After a rich breakfast, look forward to a cart ride through the village. Then drive for approx. 50 minutes towards Sighisoara.

The Birthälm fortified church (Biertan) was built by Transylvanian Saxons at the end of the 15th century. The ecclesiastical castle and village form a complementary unit, which together with the hilly landscape, formerly characterized by vineyards, create an extremely harmonious overall picture.
For the Transylvanian Saxons, this church castle, which was also a bishopric for a long time, is an important place of remembrance. Since 1991, so-called Saxon meetings have been taking place in Biertan, organised by the Democratic Forum of Germans in Transylvania.
