The second edition of Transilvania Train is scheduled for August 22-26, 2018, its program including wine tastings, four medieval cities to visit, concerts, and local culinary experiences. Each day of the trip will have a different theme. Thus, August 22 will be the “meet & greet day”, August 23 will be dedicated to the story of the fortified churches in Transylvania, August 24 will focus on the story of castles and traditional crafts, August 25 – traditional Transylvanian cuisine, and August 26 – cultural events in Sibiu.
The journey can also be extended with some private tailor-made visits (with transportation, professional guide and accommodation), for those who are willing to continue their trip and discover more of Romania’s attractions.
