Day 2: Sighisoara - Targu Mures - Viseu de Sus / Maramures

Breakfast in the morning, then we depart Sibiu towards the superb northern area of Maramures, where we will spend our next days.

On the way, short stop for an optional lunch and sightseeing in Targu Mures - known as the "city of roses" because of its many flower-filled gardens. Once part of the Kingdom of Hungary and today with a 45% population of Hungarian origin, the city enjoys the best of both cultures: Romanian and Hungarian. The main attraction of the city is definitely the splendid Cultural Palace, but also the neighbouring old Prefecture Building, the Square of Roses, the neo-Byzantine Orthodox Cathedral, the Apollo Palace, the Palffy House, the Teleki Library or the Fortress walls.

In the evening, we arrive in the heart of rural Romania - the land of Maramures, where culture, traditions and the peasant life are still untouched!

For the following 4 nights, we will overnight in the town of Viseu de Sus (where the famous Mocanita Steam Train departs from), and experience the local living by spending the nights in a traditional wooden 4* guesthouse. Maramures region is also famous for its delicious food made with homegrown vegetables, fruits and local products so, be sure you will enjoy some delicious home-cooked dinners during your stay, plus the locals' hospitality at its best!
