Saschiz In Winter

On our way back from Rupea citadel, we decided to make a short coffee stop at Saschiz. This commune is know for its fortified Lutheran church which has a large defense tower which is almost similar to the Clock tower in the medieval citadel of Sighisoara.

Actually this was my second time in the Transylvanian commune of Saschiz. My first visit was in the summer of 2015 and here you can check out my older photos captured there.

Old Peasant Fortress In Transylvania

This peasant fortress was built on a small hill right next to the Transylvanian village of Saschiz. Unfortunately I haven’t been there because the road was covered with snow and it was very slippery. The fortress is visible from the village especially if you are next to the Fortified Lutheran church. Probably one day I will explore those ruins of the old peasant fortress.
