Transylvania City Guide: Sibiu + Sighisoara | Destination Wedding Photographer

Lush landscapes and peaks coming out of the clouds, surrounding the old, medieval cities with the embrace of their hills. Deep forests. Never ending wheat fields. People resting on an old bench in front of their house, after a long day of work and talking to passers-by, goats munching grass peacefully, ladies pushing their screechy vintage bikes. Fresh food picked straight from the comfort of your own garden. This is Transylvania. Nothing makes me happier than this exact image.

Here, life is pretty simple. There are still many regions where technology and the rush of this busy world hasn’t creeped in yet. It feels indeed like time stands still even for a minute longer. Looking at people’s hands and wrinkles, you can almost read entire stories of hard working times, of lands that needed to be ploughed, of crops that had to be stored safely for a harsh Winter coming.
Romania is a country filled with history, where people had to fight with their lives to protect their families and freedom, a rich land which many leaders desired.

We had a few days of driving around Transylvania, through cities like Sibiu and Sighisoara (where Dracula the Impaler was born), which are in the very heart of Romania, surrounded by majestic mountains. One short stop we did was going to Balea Lake on the way to Sighisoara, a glacier lake in the Fagaras Mountains. And the only way you can get there is by driving on the Transfagarasan Road, the second-highest paved road in Romania. What a beauty that was!…

We hope the beauty of this country and its people inspires  you to see it differently maybe, to go visit if you haven’t yet and be sure only great adventures await if you ever decide to embark traveling around Transylvania.

But remember to always keep some garlic in your pocket, the legend says….
