Transylvanian Gypsy Culture Trip - Sighisoara guided Tour from Brasov

We start our Transylvanian Gypsy Culture Trip - Sighisoara guided Tour from Brasov from your accommodation in Brașov and drive towards Sighișoara, birth place of Vlad Dracula and the only medieval citadel from Europe still inhabited.

On the way, we'll stop for few minutes to take pictures to Rupea Citadel, build on top of a basalt hill. We continue to Sighișoara, the first highlight of the day. The tour in Sighișoara starts with the visit of the Clock Tower-the symbol of the town. We hike up in the tower for an amazing view of the town.

We visit the monastery church and go up the covered stairs to the church on the hill. After walking near the walls and the towers of the citadel we stop to have lunch.

After lunch, we drive 30 minutes continuing our Transylvanian Gypsy Culture Trip - Sighisoara guided Tour from Brasov to reach a gypsy community. The gypsy population initially came from Asia more than 600 years ago and in Romania there are about 40 groups of gypsies.

We visit one of the groups, the coppersmiths (Căldărari in Romanian language). They live from producing and selling copper objects like: kettles, cauldrons (like the one from Harry Potter :) ), alembic for distillation of țuica (traditional Romanian brandy), plates. They also produce and sell gypsy traditional skirts and blouses. They will show us how they work in copper and tell us stories about their live. You can also try out their clothes to get a glimpse how you'd feel as a gypsy :). They will be happy to sell you a small product (a kettle, a plate or a cauldron).

Tip: This type of cauldron is perfect to make mămăligă (polenta) at your home when you'll miss your trip in Romania :)

After this experience, on our way to Brasov we visit the Biertan fortified church, one of the most imposing and solidly fortified peasant fortress from Transylvania (UNESCO Site).

Optional and at no extra cost, we can stop to Pivnita Bunicii (Grandma's Pantry), where you can buy jam, marmalade, or traditional drinks.
