We will pass thru Lacu Rosu/Red Lake  Resort where we will have a short stop for admire the landscape, taking some nice pictures and find out the legend of this wonderful place.

On the way to Brasov we can visit: The Fortified Church in Prejmer - the biggest fortified church in the Southeastern Europe built in the 14th century. The fortress with double walls and dungeons makes me think to the ancient tales. Inside its walls there is a church, but the interesting thing here is the honeycomb like inner wall. Every family had one small room for sheltering in case the village was attacked. In peaceful times they used it as a storage room for food.
