Accommodation and dinner in Kalnoky Pension in Miklósvár 

 

Day 2- Viscri, UNESCO’s World Heritage village

           After a delightful breakfast, together with your guide you are going to discover the medieval village of Viscri (Deutschweisskirch). 

           Full of life wide graveled streets, colourful houses, farmers coming home from the fields, ducks, geese, guinea-fowls, turkeys – this is Viscri! It is one of the most impressive of the old Transylvanian Saxon villages on UNESCO‟s World Heritage List. 

           You will visit the fortified church which dates back to 1230; the fortified walls were added in. Your guide will introduce you to the history of the places. 

           The landscape around Viscri is similar to pre-Industrial Western Europe. This is partially due to the non-intensive traditional farming methods that continue to be practiced in this region. Approximately 500 people live in the village, the majority of which are involved in subsistence farming. 

           Horses work the fields and the elegant scythe remains a key farming tool. This makes the countryside very wildlife-friendly; bird species that are suffering a decline in Western Europe continue to thrive in Transylvania (Black stork, Lesser spotted eagle, etc.). More eloquent is the wealth of the wild flower meadows that seem to coat the entire landscape. 

           We will have a lovely walk or a horse and cart ride up to the charcoal burners, have a picnic on the way , visit the blacksmith (the third generation on his profession) on return.
