Tour Transilvania per immagini

transilvania medievale, le sue fortificazioni e castelli

Abstract: this adventure wont’ be a classical one, but a photographic workshop tour for those who love photography - as a hobby - and our guide will show you the main subjects to be immortalized and as well will take you to a small Saxon village in the heart of Romania: Transylvania.
A journey through a unique cultural blend in a unique region ... Transylvania. A path through the Saxon villages with their traditional fortified churches, with a characteristic rural life that follows with its rites the inexorable succession of the seasons ... A world to capture in images that will remain not only in our computers, but also in our hearts.
The tour will begin with a visit at the classic Count Dracula's Castle near the village Bran. After passing through the farmland, hills and mountains, through small villages you will reach the castle of the infamous Vlad the Impaler. The castle as conceived by the imagination of many because the story of Dracula ... standing on a rocky ridge, the village will be just the beginning of our trip!
The path of the tour will continue with a visit to the fortified church, wonderful example of Saxon military architecture.
The hunt for new images to capture will not stop ... the road to Sighisoara shows a luxuriant nature as well as towns and villages of an extraordinary visual impact for the tourist - photographer.
Hungarians and Saxons, settlers in Transylvania hundreds of years ago, have left cultural traces still well-preserved and silent for several thematic tours. The incredible story of the village Viscrì is enough to turn on the interest of people who are sensitive and very careful with the idea of the conservation of the lifestyle and architectural characteristics of the Saxon rural villages such as the Prince Charles of England, who owns several houses in the area and wanted to encourage a sustainable tourism respecting the characteristics of these places. Thanks to many people like Prince Charles several Saxon villages presented themselves to the visitor still intact and original. This will be an important opportunity for photographers ... tree-lined roads with no to reach the villages, green hills with wagons of itinerant beekeepers hives, shepherds with their flocks, wagons pulled by horses, barnyard animals who roam the roads and houses, cows grazing. Very interesting are the visits to craftsmen who still produce bricks and terracotta tiles, important materials in the preservation of local architectural traditions, traditional female jobs (include wool socks of Viscrì, a symbol of women's work in this country), the culinary tradition and much more.
In village Malancrav, where you will be accomodated, you will be able to capture pictures of the most ù important fortified churches: that of Viscrì and Biertan.
