Unseen fortified church in Daia

After we left the Transylvanian commune of Apold, we have decided to drive to Daia which is located about 7 km away from Apold. Unfortunately the road was not as great as the one from Sighisoara but after almost 30 minutes of driving on a dirt road, we’ve managed to reach this village.

Old church tower

One of the most amazing part of this church is that a dirt road divides the church from the bell tower, it wasn’t built as a part of the church. Unfortunately, the entire structure is in a bad condition and in my opinion, it urgently needs some major repairs.

The old Evangelical church

Here you can see a photo of the Evangelical church with the bell tower in the background of the image. The church is actually surrounded by a smaller fortified wall like almost all the fortified churches in the historical region of Transylvania.

Large tree behind the church

Right behind the old Evangelical church you will gonna find a very large and old tree. Also from this spot you can see a very large part of the village of Daia.

After capturing some exterior shots of the Evangelical church, it started to rain and we have decided to leave this amazing Transylvanian village. Hopefully, one day I will return this place again.

The Fortified Church In Apold

A few days before Christmas we’ve decided to visit the fortified church in the Transylvanian commune of Apold, Romania. Since Christmas was a few days away, the entrance into the church was closed so I was able to capture only exterior shots of the fortified church.

If you plan to visit this place, then you should know that is not very far from Sighisoara, if you are in the area then you should definitely add this place to your bucket list.

Two towers

After we arrived here, we left our car not far from this place and after that we started to explore the area near the church. Since everything was closed, including the church, I’ve captured some exterior shots, after that we drove towards our next destination which was the village of Daia.

The village and the fortified church

This image was captured on our way back from on another amazing Transylvanian village located about 8 km away from Apold. That village has a very unique fortified church, besides that is very old, more travel photos from that place in the upcoming posts.

Local cemetery and an orthodox church

I’ve shot this photo from the same place as the one above and what I’ve found to be unique about this small church is that long covered stairway which leads to the entrance of the church. Right behind that, there is the local cemetery.

Finally some asphalt

Returning from the village of Daia, close to this place the awful dirt road has ended. Since the road was empty and the fortified church was almost 100 m away from me, I’ve decided to stop the car and capture some images of church from this spot.
