After breakfast, departure for Porumbacu de Sus, where the Valley of the Fairies is located. The clay castle. Just 35 kilometers from Sibiu, in Porumbacu de Sus, in the valley of the fairies, we find a clay castle, worthy of the stories of the Grimm brothers. The castle is structured on two levels, land and attic, it has 10 rooms, each with the own rustic design and 2 towers. It is built only from natural materials, from stone and concrete, wood, lime and clay and was built by craftsmen from Maramures. The plaster of the castle is based on hydraulic lime, with calcifying properties, limestone with which the Romans built fortresses. The valley of the fairies is the place where, for several hours, you can breathe fresh air and enter a fairy tale world with fairies and princesses. Inside the castle there is also a souvenir shop with personalized gifts, fridge magnets, sweet ginger, hot chocolate and apple juice that can be enjoyed in specially prepared places. The boxes of fairy tales wait for every tourist to express a wish.

The tour continues and arrives in Sibiel, a village in nature where dinner and accommodation take place. In some cases, the arrangement is made in Sibiu.

Day 2

Sibiel / Sibiu - Olt Valley - Poenari Fortress - Curtea de Arges - Bucharest or Otopeni Airport

This day we leave to discover the Valley of the Olt river (the fourth longest in the country) and the Cozia Monastery where, going down the steps, it is possible to admire the river, and looking up, the majesty of the Carpathian Mountains.

Then departure for the town of Curtea de Arges, with an ancient history that continues to live thanks to its buildings of the fourteenth century. In addition to visiting the Monastery of Curtea de Arges built on the orders of the Holy Prince Neagoe Basarab, the Princely Church of St. Nicholas, decorated with enchanting frescoes from 1350, is certainly worth a visit. The monastery, however, is famous above all for its legend, which) built in Byzantine style between 1512 and 1517 and declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO. Topped by two spiral towers and a dome, the central body of the monastery is flanked by a second block surmounted by a dome, taller and wider than the central one.
