SAXON TRANSYLVANIA "Land of Fairytales"

Transylvania, with its romantic fortified villages and towns of 'gingerbread' houses, clock towers and turrets, red roofs and cobbled alleyways, its dark forests with magical glades, rugged mountains, canyons and caves, and its pastoral landscapes, folklore and traditions that seem to have survived from a previous age is without doubt a land that is familiar to every child as the setting for so many fairytales - Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty and Little Red Riding Hood would all be at home here while even back in 1929, Walter Starkie observed,

"On the other side of the street a group of young girls were sitting sewing; one of them was as fair as a Saxon, but another had coal-black hair and a milk-white complexion. They reminded me of 'Snow White and Rose Red' in Grimm." [Raggle-Taggle]


BLUE AIR are no longer flying from Luton to Sibiu. However, there are indirect connections with Lufthansa via Munich, Austrian via Vienna and Tarom via Bucharest. A new service with WIZZ connects LUTON with TARGU MURES - one hour from Sighisoara and 2 hours from Sibiu by road.

A wide selection of city breaks can be organised making use of some of the excellent accommodation now available in Sighisoara and Sibiu. Sighisoara is also a convenient stop on the overnight sleeper from Budapest. There are now good connections from Sighisoara and Medias to Sibiu by train. Check out the pages for 'ANOTHER EUROPE' holidays for an excellent introduction to this region. Alternatively there is a wide range of accommodation available from restored village guesthouses in the Saxon villages to new 5-star boutique hotels in Sibiu and Sighisoara, and from private apartments to spa hotels at Sovata.
