Hotel of Ice Transylvania – 5 days via Targu Mures, Sibiu, Avrig, Balea Lake

The journey begins with the landing on Targu Mures Airport. From here you’ll take a relaxing walk through the streets of the beautiful city whose historic center will reveal to you unique architectural features. The Rose Square, the Palace of Culture, the Theatre and the other buildings are all cultural monuments that you could capture in your pictures.
We’ll then continue our drive to Sighisoara, Medias and Sibiu, to reach Avrig, where you’ll spend the night at Brukenthal Palace.

 

The next day we’ll climb one of the most beautiful mountain roads of the world: Transfagarasan. Nothing compares with the pictures taken on this route like a fairytale, where hundreds of artists vied to capture magnificent images, winning photo contests and exposing in famous art galleries. At an altitude of 2,043 meters, you could live one of the most interesting experiences spending a night in one of the rooms of the only Ice Hotel in Southeastern Europe.

 

The next day we’ll visit the legendary city Sibiu, whose stately architecture of the town turns it into a real open-air museum, each monument building speaking about a part of the cultural history of this part of the world. The baroque style is predominant throughout the city, and the ancient walls, squares, stairs under the arches and towers will give you the opportunity to travel back in time.
After the first night spent in Avrig, we’ll go to Sighisoara, the medieval city where Vlad the Impaler was born and raised. He was the romanian brave ruler who had inspired the famous character Dracula. We will spend the night in Sighisoara, and in the next morning, after breakfast, we’ll go back to Targu Mures Airport.
