Mittelalterliche Festungen in Rumänien

Route: Sighişoara – Castelul Bran – Cetatea Râşnov – Braşov – Sighişoara

Unsere Reise führt uns von Sighişoara aus zum Bran Schloss, eine der meist besuchten Burgen Rumäniens. Es war der Lieblingsplatz von Königin Maria, welche die Grenzen der Festung restaurieren und verändern ließ, sodass sie als Residenz für die Königsfamilie genutzt werden konnte.

Unsere Tour geht weiter in der Festung von Râşnov. Der deutsche Name, Rosenau, Rose Valley, gibt einen Hinweis auf die Herkunft der ersten deutschen Siedler. Desweiteren wird seit dem Mittelalter die Rose als das Wahrzeichen der Gegend verwendet.

Auf unserem Weg im Land von Bârsa geht es weiter nach Braşov. Hier gab es im Mittelalter eine sehr große Handwerker-Gemeinschaft und dort war auch eines der wichtigsten Wirtschafts- und Handelszentren in ganz Siebenbürgen. Hier werden wir einen Spaziergang unternehmen, wir sehen die schmalste Straße Rumäniens (die Sforii Straße), die schwarze Kirche, den Hauptplatz, das alte Rathaus (Casa Sfatului) und die Republicii Straße – ein tolles Beispiel für die Gutmütigkeit und Großzügigkeit der Handwerker und Händler von Braşov. Unsere Tour endet in Sighişoara.
