Old traditional houses in Viscri

Viscri, a beautiful Transylvanian village

Share this:

The Transylvanian village of Viscri is very renowned because Prince Charles visited this place multiple times in the past. Through his foundation, he bought an old traditional saxon house. Ultimately the house was transformed in a beautiful guesthouse which can be rented out to the tourists.

The most important landmark in Viscri is the old Evangelical Fortified Church. In order to visit the interior of the fortified church, you have to pay for a ticket. Don’t worry, its not expensive at all. After you’ve entered the place, I highly recommend to climb up the main tower. Once you’ve reached the top, almost the entire village is visible from up there. Lastly, don’t forget to check out the Evangelical church’s hall, it’s right next to main tower.

Within the fortified church, you will find a “little museum” with many interesting old items used by the saxons.

As a small side note, this church is a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Other important places to visit in the area:

If you’ve decided to explore other interesting places which are not very far from Viscri, then you must visit the medieval citadel of Sighisoara and the old Rupea citadel.
