Transilvania Train

The “Transilvania Train” project run by CFR (Romanian Railways), and supported by the local authorities, is a tourist experience that is one-of-a-kind in Europe, a truly legendary adventure through the heart of Transylvania: over 20 fortifications visited, 12 traditional workshops, 600 km travelled in 5 days. The train left from Brașov, after a festive moment, the tourists boarded the wagons and started their journey, eager to explore the traditions, values and culture of Transylvania. The project also included tasting of traditional Saxon cuisine, thematic workshops, shows and concerts organized in the fortified churches.

Traditional and cultural experiences

The “Transilvania Train” event held during the period 22 - 26 August 2018, offered a complex tourist package: day 1 - meet & greet day; day 2 - story of the fortified churches in Transylvania; day 3 - story of the castles and traditional crafts; day 4 - traditional Transylvanian cuisine; day 5 - cultural events in Sibiu.
In this adventure, the train holds a central place, linking the visited places and at the same time serving as a place where the participants and the organizers can meet and connect, taste selections of local wines, and listen to legends and stories about the places visited.

#Travel journal

Here’s who joined in the adventure: Vlad Eftimie, “armed” with a camera and a drone, to immortalize the journey and Diana Cosmin who kept the travel journal. “We started from Braşov and continued through the Haferland region, went through the stories of the fortified churches of Saschiz, Viscri, Criţ, Buneşti and Meşendorf, then Mediaş, Alba Iulia (Oh, how I love this place!), Sebeş and Mărginimea Sibiului, and visted the extinct volcano in Racoș. In addition to the over 20 fortifications we have visited, we also participated in traditional terracotta, wheel making and beer-based Transylvanian cuisine workshops. I purposefully chose to take part in all of the above in order to have a complete experience, and then do some storytelling with images”, wrote Vlad Eftimie.

Cruise on land

Transylvania Train is not a simple journey, but rather a unique adventure during which tourists can explore the most beautiful areas of Transylvania, this project being considered a relaxing cruise on land. The passengers are sure to return home with an unforgettable memories about the medieval fortresses in Transylvania and many of them will want to come back to these lands. This year’s edition had some elements of novelty, which added value to the project.
