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.
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.
