About the tour

For a very special trip we invite you on a horse drawn carriage to discover one of the most remote villages of Romania where simply the time stood by. Viscri (or Weiskirich in Saxon dialect) is all about the authentic village life in Transylvania but also the rich history behind its UNESCO Fortified Church. And this is going to be the future too for this UNESCO village, where Saxons arrived starting with 12th century and have put their mark on the history of Transylvania. Many might say that Viscri became famous due to the presence of HRH Prince Charles of Wales who felt in love with Transylvania and even bought a traditional Saxon house in the village back in 2006. But few know that a handful of locals led by very few Saxons still living in Viscri have contributed to the village's revival, especially by trying to not change their authentic and sustainable way of life.

My first tour with Mihai, very enjoyable. One suggestion would be to turn the camera to the side more often to see more of the village and landscape during the carriage ride. Saw a little too much of the horses hindside because camera was pointed straight ahead.

Lovely to see you back Mihai. It was like stepping back in time in the village. The cows were a lovely surprise. The blacksmith was hypnotic to watch. Great tour. Thanks Mihai

I enjoyed Mihai's tour by horse drawn carriage ending with the blacksmith demonstration making a horseshoe. It was interesting and felt authentic
