ITINERARY: BRASOV - PREJMER - HARMAN - BRASOV

In the 12th century the German Saxons arrived in Transylvania playing a major role in the development of powerful strongholds and fortresses throughout the region. The influence of the Saxons of Transylvania, also known Sasi, heavily increase the regions economy and began a cultural evolution. The spirit of the Saxons can still be seen today in such medieval towns as Brasov, Sibiu, Sighisoara, Medias and Sebes. But the most impressive mark left by this culture are the Fortified Churched scattered through out the region. On this day tour from Brasov our English-Speaking guide will take you to visit two Saxon Church Fortresses: Harman and Prejmer.

Prejmer church, one of Eastern Europe’s best preserved fortified (and UNESCO listed) churches, was built in a shape of a Latin cross in a Gothic style. Built in 1427 to with stand the attacks of the Ottomans. The walls are 14 meters high and 5 meters thick. Access to this massive fortress can be gained through a 5 meter thick long tunnel.

Harman Church is a Roman basilica with Gothic elements. The west tower, chapels and water moat still maintain this era today. Inside you can find paintings dated back to the 13th century.
